I wrote a SlackBuild script that should give you a Slackware package for your raid controller card.
Make sure you have installed the Slackware kernel sources for 2.4.31. Change directory to the kernel source directory and run
make oldconfig; make dep
Next, download all the stuff here: http://www.slackware.com/~alien/slac...s/ft3xx/build/
and then run
in the download directory.
You'll end with a Slackware package in directory /tmp named ft3xx-1.00.0.19_2.4.31-i486-1.tgz , that contains the ft3xx.o.gz kernel module for the default Slackware 10.2 kernel (2.4.31).
Install that package using
so that the driver is installed - as a module!
This recipe only helps if your root filesystem is not
located on your RAID device... because you can only load the ft3xx module after Slackware booted. In case you do need the module on boot, you could create an initrd file for the kernel, using the mkinitrd script, that contains the ft3xx module, and add something appropriate to /etc/lilo.conf.
