kudzu still knows about the old 2.4 kernel dpt_i2o driver, while in this kernel we are using i2o_block. I suspect kudzu or hwdata needs changing, and kudzu needs more changing to work properly here. I am working more on this again in several hours after I fix a few xorg-x11 upgrade issues.



Will it work for update ? As in up2date -u kernel, and the install script to change /etc/modprobe.conf.

Other changes in your config will be needed because your block devices change from /dev/sd* to /dev/i2o/hd*.



Is there any doc for the i2o block driver? I was being misguided and I put i2o_scsi instead of dpt_i2o in modprobe.conf and it failed on me. Should it work with i2o_block ?


i2o_scsi is almost never used because it is for accessing disks directly. i2o_block is used for accessing the logical block devices of your I2O RAID controller. If you have disabled RAID arrays, then these block devices become the individual disks.


Note that only 351 and later kernels are patched with Markus Lidel's newer fixes. All previous kernels have severe problems if your RAID controller has more than a single logical array.

One more patch for i2o_proc available at Markus' I2O homepage, along with other information.
