I am attempting to install the driver for the Intel x710 network interface card on Fedora CoreOS. The drivers I have downloaded from Intel are in .rpm files. I cannot install then with
rpm -Uvh as instructed: when I try to do so, I find that I have missing dependencies. I can download those dependencies and try the same thing, and eventually I get to the lowest level dependency and rpm fails to make a lock file in /var (which is read-only) and aborts. I have also tried to install the driver with
rpm-ostree install driver.rpm, but this fails as /sysroot is also non writeable.
I have learned of the CoreOS assembler project. Is this the correct way to go for making such a modification, or what is the proper way to do so?
