Smile Promise FastTrack 100 "Lite" + RH 7.1


Hi Guys,

Through my job as a hardware reviewer, I have acquired an AOpen AX37+ motherboard, which has an inbuilt Promise FastTrack 100 "Lite" RAID controller. However, I do not know much about Linux (especially RAID under Linux).

I booted off the RedHat 7.1 CD, and setup went through fine until it detected the storage devices. RedHat correctly detected the onboard VIA VT8223 south bridge, finding my other hard drive and my CD-ROM. But when it came to detecting the RAID controller (I'm assuming that's what it was trying to find), the machine hangs.

So my question is - how can I get my RAID-0 array to be detected under RedHat 7.1?

Any help would be appreciated - and BTW my SmoothWall box is running perfectly as a gateway

Thanks in advance,

Jon "Albinus" Albiez.

Hey now,

Some of us have jobs you know- we can't hang out here all of our waking hours...


Seriously though, there's a lot of discussion out there concerning your problem. In trying to get my Promise ATA-100 controller card going I found a lot of info on the Promise RAID controllers as well. Do a search at Google using "+linux +Promise +raid" as your search criteria.

I know that feeling all too well mate

But thanks guys - I'll look into it. Promise is very keen on supporting the controller card versions, but not the "Lite" onboard ones - go figure

Thanks,

Albinus.
