SCSI generic, RedHat 9.0, Qlogic Fibre Channel card


I have installed RedHat 9.0 on a PC with a QLA2300 HBA(Fibre Channel card). RH9 recognizes the HBA and sets it up correctly from what I can tell. I want to be able to use SCSI Generic API to access the HBA. Does RH9 automatically add sg into the kernel since it detects the HBA or do I need to build a new kernel with sg support? Where do I look to see if sg is already in the kernel? I have looked at xconfig and found the sg support options. If I have to build a new kernel, where is the installion generated config kept so I can load the previously known working settings and overlay the sg support?

Hi..

sg is a module in RH9 Distribution. U can start the module using insmod. If you are compiling a new kernel, add the SCSI Generic support as a Module in the SCSI option. and make the modules. The modules will be installed in /lib/modules/2.4.xxx/kernel/drivers/scsi directory.

Thanks for the response. I tried 'modprobe sg' and then did a 'lsmod' and saw that sg was loaded.
