Could someone please give me some advice as to adding a module to a kernel so i can upgrade to the latest one
I have one of these lovely HP ML150 G2 servers that comes with a Marvell SATA Raid controller. Everything works great at the moment except I am using an old kernel.
When the new kernel tries to install, I receive the error message that 'aar81xx' module cannot be found. I take it that this means that the module is not in the default kernel.
What is the best way to upgrade to the new kernel?
Is there a simple way of installing the new kernel, such as providing a path to the aar81xx.rpm provided by HP?
If I need to create my own kernel, could someone point me in the right direction to get the source etc?
Thanks for your reply in this matter.
In response to your questions:
HP have provided a rpm and a tar.gz (for diskette) - I will need to contact them to determine for which kernel this has been released.
What I am a little confused about is how I installed CentOS 4.2 with the driver diskette with no problems. Is it not possible to do a similar procedure when installing a new kernel?
The source does exist for this driver, and rolling it into the kernel is possible, but I am looking for a quick and dirty method as I am time limited.
