backporting modules


I need the LSI logic megaraid SAS driver module to make my perc 5/e raid controller work. This module comes with 2.6.14 kernel. However, i need to run Dell Openmanage server administrator on the 2.6.12 kernel. How would i backport the sas driver from the 2.6.14 kernel into the 2.6.12 kernel?

This is one of those cases where if you are asking the question, it's probably not going to be something you can do yourself.

You can contact the developers for the perc 5/e raid controller (listed in the module source), and offer to pay them to write the code. You can hire a third party developer, and have them do the work. In either case, the software will likely remain as something only you use, and will have to support as long as you continue to do so.

A better solution would be to call Dell, and ask them to get their software support up to date. By running a back level kernel, you are also subject to security issues that have already been corrected in the current FC5 kernel (2.6.16.20 based).
