Question Promise TX2000 + native kernel driver


Hello!

I got a question about my Promise TX2000.
I want to install a my Linux on a RAID0 partition without the Promise driver.
I know that kernel 2.4.19 is supporting my raid controller, but no distribution is currently using it! Has anybody installed Debian 3.0 (2.4.18) or SuSE 7.3 (2.4.10) on a raid system and can give me a short how to?

Regards
Moritz

Hi Moritz
I am currently running RH7.3 with the promise driver. I cant seem to find any information about the native driver. Do you have a link?

Regards
Henrik

Hi again,
After looking into the matter, it seems that you will only be able to run software raid with the linux native kernel driver.
Does anyone know, if there will be native hardware raid support in the near future for promise raid controllers?

Promise native driver

hi
Many people have asked for native drivers. It seems that Promise will not release the specs. needed to make a native driver.

Buy the way: I seem to have some performance issues with my Fasttrack TX2000 driver (to redhad 7.3). When doing a lot of IO (for instance running mkisofs or overnet) linux freezes once in a while (one or more times a day) and need a hard reset. Before it freeze, it is also most impossible to execute any commands because the system is busy doing IO. The disks isn't moving very much though and system load isn't very high.

I suspect that it is a hardware issue on the TX2000.

No messages are printed in the logs!!

Have anybody experienced anything like it?

/Henrik
