Last I looked at it I thought the proprietary software raid driver for
the 3114 was binary only and hence only available for certain kernels
and certainly not 64bit. Do I remember wrong?
Besides why do you want proprietary software raid when you could use
open standard linux md software raid (which is faster too in general).
