Drivers for Qlogic QLA2100


Would anyone have the Qlogic qla2100 drivers needed when installing FC4? I can't seem to find them anywhere. The card finds the storage when I boot the system into CDROM install mode. However, I need to install the drivers because the system does not see the storage during the install.

Thanks very much.

Mike

Looking at Qlogic's site I did find drivers for this for RedHat 6.2. The README for that says it only works for 6.2 but comments it includes the source so you can compile for other versions. Its seems this is a really old card if it doesn't have support beyond 6.2. (Last RedHat in that series was 9 and it was replaced by Fedora which is now up to Fedora Core 5).

The link where I found the README:

Wait now, I should not say it's supported, I should say the drivers in order to use the card are still there.

Hi and thanks for the lead. I did see that and the thing is, the card is still supported in the Fedora series, to FC5 so far in my uses. I just could not find a loadable driver for installing from an FC device during the fedora installation.
