Hi All,

We looking for suggestions on dealing with mellanox drivers in CentOS 6.7

We tried installing mellanox drivers 
(MLNX_OFED_LINUX-3.2- on a Quanta Cirrascale 
server running Centos 6.7 - 2.6.32-573.22.1.el6.x86_64.  When we 
rebooted the machine after installing the drivers, it went into a kernel 
panic for every installed kernel except for Centos 6.7 
2.6.32-573.22.1.el6.x86_64.debug.  After we uninstalled the drivers, the 
machine failed to boot for any installed kernel.

Any suggestions on how to proceed would be greatly appreciated.
