After quick hack-n-slash, it works. It works also on 3.0, if you want 3.1/3.2/3.3 – modify it yourself or wait until i need it 🙂
Needs quite non-intrusive modification to three files:
— fix autoconf
— in 2.6.36 blkdev_get requires two parameters, in 2.6.37 three
— mask 3.0 as 2.6, can be used to mask 3.1/3.2/3.3 also, and could probably be a lot prettier
Patchfile can be found here: http://macronet.fi/dev/rr268x/ < not recommended, get official fixed version from highpoint (unless you are absolutely sure you want to run v1.4 or v1.6).
* Update 05/2012 * v1.6 patchfile found in /staging which is modified to mask all 3.x as 2.6
* Update 07/2012 * Just get v1.8 driver which is properly fixed by Highpoint:
* Update 01/2013 * There seems to be v1.9 driver released, with following info in README:
NOTE: The latest tested kernel version: 3.5.2.
* Fixed a potential bug about fail to recover array.
Hello, i use a rocketraid 2680 and i use your patch with 1.6 driver in ubuntu 11. Since I update to Ubuntu 12.04 it doesn’t work. Could you help me please or gimme a good patch please ?
Thanx a lot in advance if you do it you save my little company.
Try http://macronet.fi/dev/rr268x/staging/rr268x-linux-src-v1.6-20120508.patch (makefile changes only) and hope for the best.
Please note that I’m unable to test it under 12.04, and (probably) only Highpoint knows how it should work (if at all?) with newer kernels.
I modify the makefile and it seems good. Thanx a lot.
Do you use this card with an expander and zfs ?
No expanders and just plain ext4 for now.
Moreover i have some problem with this card using zfs. I cannot disable the beeper. Could you help me?
No idea, try Highpoint CLI from http://www.highpoint-tech.com/USA_new/rr2600_download.htm.
