Slackware and Proliant Problem


Hello All,

I've been trying to figure out this problem.

I have a Compaq Proliant 800 with a Smart Array Controller. For some reason I can not install slackware, because slackware does not see this controller.

I have tried the raid.s script with no luck.

Any Suggestions?



Thank you


Devon

did you check with compaq/hp to see if they have a driver that you can compile into the kernal?
also what version of slack are you attempting?
when you say you tried the raid.s script i'm assuming you booted from the slack CD and at the prompt typed
raid.s
then hit enter?

Thx for replying Finlay

They have driver for RH 6.1 and 6.2.. Will this work? If so, how do I tell slackware to install it from boot.


also what version of slack are you attempting?

10

when you say you tried the raid.s script i'm assuming you booted from the slack CD and at the prompt typed
raid.s
then hit enter?

Yes.. Should I have done something different?


Thx again

Devon

i found this, let me know if it works:
Use the raid.s disk.
The device names are:
/dev/ida/c0d0 for the first disk,
/dev/ida/c0d1 for the second ...

Partitions are:

/dev/ida/c0d0p1 for the first partition,
/dev/ida/c0d0p2 second etc.
