I need to find the driver version for my disk controller


Hello,
I am currently trying to find out what driver version I am using for my server. I am wondering if their is a specific command I can use, as I have been scouring the Internet for the past day looking for this information. I have used "lsmod" to see my modules, but once I am in there I do not know where my disk controller information would be found. (I also needed to find my NIC info as well, so I typed "modinfo [device]" and it gave me the driver version there. Sorry if this seems to be an open ended / "open to interpretation" question, but I cannot seem to find what I am looking for. Thanks in advance,
Clev II

PS below is the output of "lsmod" on my server.

In order to cross-reference against the above output from `lsmod` (if necessary), it would be great if you could post the output from this:
Code:
lspci -v
That might answer your question, and more.

P.S. - another 2 commands you might try for even more info, are "hwinfo" or "lshw" if you have either of them on your server.

I see my controller here, yet it does not display driver information. Thanks for your feedback!

Yes, I find it funny that it doesn't show the driver, like mine does:
Code:
00:0d.0 IDE interface: nVidia Corporation MCP51 IDE (rev a1) (prog-if 8a [Master SecP PriP])
        Subsystem: Micro-Star International Co., Ltd. Device 7350
        Flags: bus master, 66MHz, fast devsel, latency 0
        [virtual] Memory at 000001f0 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=8]
        [virtual] Memory at 000003f0 (type 3, non-prefetchable) [size=1]
        [virtual] Memory at 00000170 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=8]
        [virtual] Memory at 00000370 (type 3, non-prefetchable) [size=1]
        I/O ports at ffa0 [size=16]
        Capabilities: [44] Power Management version 2
        Kernel driver in use: AMD_IDE
---


Anyhow, assuming we're looking at your RAID controller there, here's the kernel driver database page for that device/driver:
http://cateee.net/lkddb/web-lkddb/FUSION.html
and here:
http://cateee.net/lkddb/web-lkddb/FUSION_SAS.html

.. which indicates you're using some combination of the items in bold, below (copied from your lsmod output) probably in conjunction with the other SCSI modules shown there (scsi_mod, scsi_transport_sas, etc..) and in conjunction with the dm_raid drivers also shown in your lsmod output:
Code:
mptsas 51017 2
mptscsih 36673 1 mptsas
mptbase 84869 2 mptsas,mptscsih
scsi_transport_sas 30529 1 mptsas
sd_mod 25281 3
scsi_mod 141973 8 scsi_dh,sr_mod,sg,usb_storage,mptsas,mptscsih,scsi_transport_sas,sd_mod
So, a number of driver components working together. Does this answer the question somewhat?
