how to add a device driver into custom redhat 9 install cd


Hi, guys

I am doing a custom redhat9 kickstart install cd.

One big problem I am facing is to support a raid controller during installation stage.

I have modified modules in initrd.img and stage2.img.

the 4 files in those 2 image files are updated:

module-info modules.cgz modules.dep pcitable

I still couldn't proceed install with the raid.

So can anybody tell from the pretty limited information I provide above, tell me what kind of thing I need to do but not yet done or anything I have done wrongly.

It will be so much appreciated. Thanks in advance!

That post was 4 and a half years old. And RH9 was probably already a couple of years old by then.
Waste of time. Try a more modern release (Fedora is the current embodiment of the old Redhat series).

Hi,
I totally agree with you, but it might help someone in the coming dayz who still might be working on older distros.

Btw I am working on RHEL5.4 so thought of posting it.
