Promise FastTrak S150 SX4 & Sarge compatibility
I'm checking component compatibility of a second hand server I'd like
to buy. I've found some issues though on several forums concerning
the Promise FastTrak S150 SX4 RAID card. In some older posts I found
issues with kernel 2.4 and 2.6. where the kernel's driver only sees
the RAID set as separate disks, not as one logical volume.
Does anyone have recent experience with this card in combination with
Sarge? If Sarge doesn't support the card by default, does anyone have
found reliable solutions?
There are drivers for Suse 9.1 and Red Hat 8/9 and source code on the
Promise site. Does anyone have experience using any of those? Since
I've got no experience with either RAID or compiling, I'd welcome it
if someone would like to share his experiences with the Promise
Any pointers to good recent info welcome.
