Re: 3ware driver in 2.2.17 distribution]
Thing is that the driver included in the kernel source says it's 1.1, and 3ware doesn't claim to have gotten their driver to that level yet, which is odd. Their
most recent version is 1.0.002something...
So onto my other question...
Is there anyway to create an installation kernel just like the distro one but with an kernel built with their latest, supported, driver? Basically I need a modified rescue.bin if I'm not mistaken..
Are there any instructions for how to do such a thing?
Thanks for you help. I've been installing and testing things all day
to no avail.
This is what I'm getting in my /var/log/messages that leads me to suspect that this driver that comes with the 2.2.17 kernel is problematic. I'm also talking with one of 3ware's developers about this problem. I want them to be able to support Debian, like they should.
