I'm trying to set up a new web server at my home to host my personal web site and e-mail. I have a High Point 372 (PATA) card and am trying to install Fedora Core 5 on a RAID1 array. The High Point 37x is supported by dmraid and, I am lead to believe, is Linux supposed to have support built into the 2.6x kernel.
The Linux kernel supports the hardware itself. Dmraid is a tool that can 1.) read the array metadata off the disks and 2.) tell a kernel module named DM how to assemble those disks into a functional array.
When I try to install Fedora on a RAID1 array I get kernel panic errors saying the PCI clock won't sync. If I have just the card installed with no drives attached it and a drive attached to the on-board controller, then no error, but no RAID.
You should express your concern about that over on the linux-ide or linux-kernel mailing lists. Dmraid is pretty much the only subject of this particular mailing list, regardless of the stupid list name. Dmraid does not handle the hardware in any way. (Feel free to Cc this list though, if you want, others might go looking here when they come across the same problem that you did. Beware that some people are hysterical anti-cross-posters and will refuse to answer an email if you cc'ed another list, so... YMMV. You decide :-).) The exact error messages would be very useful too. A couple of helpful (I hope) tips: You can grab kernel sources off http://www.kernel.org and take a look in Documentation/kernel-parameters.txt. Look for "irq", there are various options to workaround hardware bugs and similar. You can use Gmane.org to search linux-kernel or linux-ide for any previously encountered problems with your chipset and/or RAID controller and/or motherboard. _______________________________________________ Ataraid-list mailing list Ataraid-list@xxxxxxxxxx https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/ataraid-list
