I am running a compaq server that needs this to boot. It is not included in the 2.6 kernel (arch 0.6) and I am not sure if I can load it as a module during boot.
This can be built as a module, but whether you do this or compile it into the kernel it will require some specific parameters. Check out the kernel documentation /linux-2.6.4/Documentation/cpqarray.txt for more info.
I know it can be built and it already is a module in the install...but I need to get the system up to get a kernel built to the get the module to get to the drives.....
So...thanks. But, can this be passed as a boot-time parameter (I am guessing no since it needs it to read the disks to read the module to read the disks to read the module ....
Oops I have not read the docs....but I will take a look....thanks.
Is it possible to compile a new kernel during the install ...
issue a chroot to /mnt, mod the config and run make etc...?
A thought...let me know if it is any good
Actually, during the 'install kernel' stage of the install, just select the option to compile from source, and it'll send you to menuconfig.
To get a module to load at boot: Just add it to MODULES=(whatever and whatever else) in /etc/rc.conf.
