FAQ
Hi,

I'm trying to install K12LTSP based on CentOS 5.0-el 32bits kernel
2.6.18-8 on a server with 3ware 9650SE raid controller. Does anybody
know where I can find a driver diskette for the raid controller as this
is only supported from kernel 2.6.19.

Thanks for any help

Gert

    Hi Gert,

    The 3Ware drivers for EL50/ CentOS5 can be downloaded from:
    http://www.3ware.com/KB/article.aspx?id203

    But I have red somewhere that the (in kernel 2.6.19 vanilla) 9650SE driver
    is backported to 2.6.18 EL in the 5.1 or 5.2 kernel series. If not, 3Ware
    also provide drivers for those kernels.

    John

    You REALLY don't want to use the 2.6.18-8 kernel. It's got a nasty
    vulnerability in it (vm_splice). Is there a reason you're using 5.0
    instead of 5.1 or 5.2?

    I think that is the initial kernel on the CD rolled by the K12LTSP project. It
    probably yum updates right away( one hopes).

    The reason I'm using kernel 2.6.18 is that it is the only long term
    support version available in the LTSP project. I think after an update I
    will get kernel 2.6.19.
    The drivers available at the 3ware don't work, but I managed booting by
    compiling the driver myself in a vmware image.

    Grz,

    Gert.
