So the answer is ... update the kernel.
2.6.18 in the OpenSuSE 10.2 flavor is not compatible (currently) with
OFED-1.2 (nightly, past rc2).
Looks like they are focussing on specific RH/SuSE builds. Haven't seen
it on Debian/Ubuntu.
Built it on OpenSuSe with updated 188.8.131.52 kernel. Thought you would
like to know.
