Im attempting to get CentOS 4.1 to work on a HP Netserver LPr
This machine is a dual PIII 550 with two SCSI-2 drives.
I have used HP Net raid express to format the two drives - OK
I have not created any logical drives.
and I have checked the integrity of the CD media - OK
I can run the CentOS installer in graphic mode OK
It identified that I have three controllers requiring drivers
Intel Ether Express /100 driver (el100)
LSI MegaRaid Controller (megaraid_mbox)
There are no drivers in the distribution to support
the SCSI controllers.
So when I get to the (X windows) Install disk partition
screen I receive and error dialog advising that there are
no drives in the system to partition.
Question A :
Does any one know where I could get drivers for these
devices ? (I've checked HP - no luck there)
Question B :
Has anyone managed to get a Linux OS to operate on
this hardware using the exisiting installed SCSI controllers ?
(HP site infers that RH 6.2 and 7.0 have been installed
on these machines - but not by HP (?) )
All useful suggestions and advice welcome
All the best
PS: I've raised tis thread in the Linux hardware forum
because it relates to the NP Netserver LPr installed Raid
and network controllers. Not just to a specific Linux Distro.
