LSI U320


Does anybody know where I can get the Linux driver for the LSI U320 (for the new Dell PowerEdge 1750 servers)? I need to recompile my kernel for support of my dual processors and 2GB of RAM, but I need this controller driver before I can recompile =(

This is the search I ran on Google's Linux Pages.

There are a few links you may want to look at - one of them appears to be in Japanese, but does have a download for the driver. You want either the source code or a tgz package.

Thanks for your input, XavierP. Unfortunately, I could not find a version that I was looking for. I believe I found the page you were looking at, but I saw a bunch of Red Hat versions of Linux, and TurboLinux, but that's about it. I did not see a source download for it (it's highly possible that I'm blind).

I have also looked on [link="http://www.domsch.com/linux/#megaraid"]THIS[/link] page, but the closest I seem to get to what I'm looking for is this statement
Quote:
Dell also sells a number of RAID cards or ROMBs which use the LSI (formerly AMI) MegaRAID driver which is part of the stock 2.2.x and 2.4.x kernels.

.....

PowerEdge 1750 ROMB - PERC4/Di - dual channel, U320 SCSI with battery-backed cache. Requires driver 1.18f or above, 1.18i or above is recommended.
Unfortunately, the PERC 4/Di driver does not seem to be present, either.... =/

Sorry, I am new to Linux, so please feel free to be long-winded and "dummy" with me.

From the LSI page - http://www.lsilogic.com/downloads/do...ad_type=driver

Have a look at the readme - against RH9 the readme sys that there is source as well as rpm

The link to my LSI search is: http://www.lsilogic.com:8765/lsi_que....y=0&I1=+seek+

Thanks agqain, XavierP.

Unfortunately, that's not the correct driver. I cannot seem to get a GET post to link you, but I can walk you through it. Here is the link to the readme for the driver I'm looking for:
http://www.lsilogic.com/files/suppor...x/mptlinux.txt

If you go to the downloads page, select the following dropdowns:
SCSI I/O Controllers
Ultra320 SCSI I/O Controllers
LSI53C1030

This brings you to a page for driver downloads for Red Hat, SuSE, and Caldera... but nothing for slack, and I don't see source downloads either... but maybe I'm blind (a known possibility) =/

Is this ftp link of any use (I pulled it from the readme you posted above)? ftp://ftp.lsil.com/HostAdapterDrivers/linux/Fusion-MPT/

Thanks, XavierP. I'll see if I can figure out how to work this now.

*sigh* This has been such a long process =/
