Jmicron drivers for FC6 on gigabyte 965p ds3


Hi.
I recently built a system based on the Gigabyte 965p ds3 with e6600. Installed FC6 and it runs sweetly. I have two discs attached to the jmicron sata II jmb 363 (I believe) controller in the hope of getting RAID working. The BIOS is configured and ready. The kernel is 2.6.20-1. BUT I am missing the driver needed I think. Gigabyte say get it somewhere else. Jmicron say its in your distro. I say I cannot find it! Can anyone help me find the driver or a source for it or if I am getting this totally wrong tell me where I am going wrong?

Sorry if this has been asked before and thanks for your patience.

That jmicron controller is a constant source of headaches; I have one on my ASUS mobo and I've never been able to get it to work properly. Support has been in the kernel since 2.6.18 but even now it's far from perfect.

Anyway, if you'd like to use RAID, you may want to explore software RAID instead.
