Thread: Knoppix on Compaq

    Knoppix on Compaq

    I am trying to do a HD install on a Compaq server with a Smart Array 5300 controller. No matter what I do, I can't get Knoppix to recognize the controller. I've tried doing a modprobe from the root shell but still can't get the cciss module to recognize the drives. I've also tried the mkdev.cciss script to no avail

    Any suggestions???

    I have never used this hardware, etc... But from the site:

    I could suggest that you could try the redhat 7.1 kernel, although again, I
    have never tried using an alternate kernel, so this is just a suggestion...'

    The following link contains a driver for redhat 8.0:

    Hope that helps
