Question regarding the /dev/ataraid/ devices



This is related to my: "Re: Problems with the Promise Fastrak100 and
2.4.8-ac7 (Alan Miles) (Alan Miles)" entries to this forum (although I am
now using 2.4.9-ac5 - however my problems are the same).

My Promise Fast Trak100 Raid controller has two  id's on boot:

1/ Two identical drives on one unit Raid 0 -Striped
2/ Separate drive on the other id Raid 0 -Striped

Now the pdcraid MAKEDEV script makes the devices for /dev/ataraid/d0,
/dev/ataraid/d0p[0-1]([0-9])*

These have a major number of 114.

I would assume I need /dev/ataraid/d1, /dev/ataraid/d1p[0-1]([0-9])*
devices, but I don't know what Major Numbers to use.

Hello Arjan,

The people of RedHat take a good Work by the driver Version 1.20b5.
My only problem is that my Athlon is not installed correctly during normal
Installation.
My Board is an Epox-8KTA+ with the KT133 Chipset and an Athlon 800
Thunderbord.
The Mtrr localisate the Athlon CPU as an Intel type

give the above results.

My problem is to installing the agpgart for my Geforce 2 MX.

I am a newby in linux and tried to compile the Alan Cox Kernel 2.4.6-ac with
the patches as a second Kernel on my System.

All goes well during Installation of the Kernel and the script for the
dev/ataraid devices.

Now I have problems with your Makefile. I don´t now in which directory I
have
to install your driver to run the Makefile for my new Kernel.
The Makefile look always to my old kernelversion and not to the new one.
I have packed the old Linux-2.4.2-2 Kernel in an Archiv, it is enough?
I have now two directories in lib/modules.
What do I wrong?

[root localhost ataraid]# make
cc -g -I/lib/modules/`uname -r`/build/include -O2 -march=i686
-fomit-frame-point
er -Wall -D__KERNEL__ -DMODULE -DMODVERSIONS  -Wno-unused -include
/lib/modules/
`uname -r`/build/include/linux/modversions.h   -c -o ataraid.o ataraid.c
In file included from ataraid.c:29:
/lib/modules/2.4.2-2/build/include/linux/swap.h:104: parse error before `*'
make: *** [ataraid.o] Fehler 1

I tried the new driver from Promise, but with the new driver 1.09 a
installation of Redhat isn´t possible.

I look for new drivers on the promise site and found this:

[08-31-01] The RedHat drivers have been temporarily removed. Please check
back in a few days.

They have have found theire failure, I think.

Excuse me for my bad english

Best Regards from Germany

Red Hat has noth to do with the Promise propriatry driver.
In fact, once you load that into your kernel, we KNOW things will go funny
in your system.....

Also, there was a minor issue with mtrr's in the original Red Hat Linux 7.1
kernel, that has been fixed in the 2.4.3-12 errata kernel Red Hat releases
several months ago. But you can't use that because Promise doesn't support
that kernel with their driver :(

Does anyone know what the warning means (pdcraid.c:95:)  I am in some
unfamiliar territory here.

Looks fine; the warning is harmless
