A new kernel RPM has been posted http://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/suse/ft...SL8.2-promise/
(this was some time ago mind you) that is supposed to fix problems with promise fasttrak raid controllers. My question to the masses.
1) I have my linus installed with software striping. do I really gain anything by using the "hardware" raid instead.
2) How would I go about reinstalling my system if the new kernel is an rpm. I would have to format my present partitions to use the new raided disks, but in the process I would have to reinstall linux. Loosing my freshly upgraded kernel.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
