I had the same problem and it was a service that was running with an old
That is the compromise that is being made in their community and, in
practical terms, it differs very little from simply including the blobs.
comSo let's win back the rights to run the hardware we purchased.
About half of the code is a framework to permit RAID controllerdrivers
