OpenSUSE Hardware :: 10.1 Driver For LSI RAID On Intel S3000AH

Feb 13, 2010

Short story: Correct driver for 10.1 for the raid on the Intel S3000AH board?
Long story: This system crashed due (I think) to a bad memory module, had been running fine for 2 years, had been an upgrade from Suse9. The hardware is fixed but I get "GRUB" repeating on the screen when booting and that is all. I can't seem to find opensuse drivers for 10.1 (that is what I believe is on the system, I believe the data is still intact and don't want to compromise it if possible) It will not load the 10.1 drivers from the intel site, presumably (?) because they are for SLES, not opensuse. I can boot from a 9.3 CD with the drivers from the intel site, and can see the original partitions.

Fedora Installation :: 10 - Get To Select The Intel RAID Driver In The Install Process?

Jan 12, 2009

Installing new Intel server S5000VSA (Sapello) motherboard with RAID 1. Downloaded F10 32 bit DVD and run install. Everything works fine and select Samba and all that. Install completes but on reboot get a blank screen.

I know with Windows one has to load the RAID driver off the Intel driver CD, so guess that is the problem. But how do I do this in Fedora? Question: How do I get to select the Intel RAID driver in the install process? There does not seem to be any place to stop and make this selection. I tried selecting the Red Hat and Suze installs on the Intel configuration assistant but it then reboots and that is it. In Windows it would ask to insert the Intel driver CD but that does not happen. So I am stuck. I loaded Fedora some 3 year ago and like it but then it was not on a RAID setup. I created a VMWare install on my desktop and did the same install options and it works. So the DVD seems fine.

CentOS 5 Hardware :: Intel S5000Vsa And RAID Driver With Centos 5.4?

Dec 31, 2009

I've a Centos 5.1 server on S5000vsa Intel board with 6 bay HD in raid 1 mode (2 HD), and working fine until I've decide to make a yum update. Today the Centos is 5.4 but seems necesssary to upgrade the megasr driver for the raid function (i.e. , is not possible to contact the raid firmware trought Web Console 2). I've download the last megasr driver from Intel and I follow the instruction to upgrade the driver with s.o. installed, but when I start the server and choose via grub the new img boot file, the display show :

megasr.ko invalid module format -1 and stop. The linux version is the same in the machine (uname -a) and from the driver (2.6.18-164.9.1.el5). Another question : in Intel instruction spoken about megasr.o , but on img file I found a megasr.ko . I think instructions referre to old linux 2.4

Ubuntu Installation :: Rebuild Status Raid 1 Intel Isw Fakeraid Intel?

Oct 1, 2010

I have recently installed Ubuntu 10.04.1 lts server on my Intel "fakeraid" (software raid) (2x250 sata).To test my RAID 1 I turned off one HD and start the system.The first screen (Intel software screen) show Status = Degraded, but the system starts normally with just one HD.Then I turned off the system and turned on the HD again, so the first screen (Intel software screen) shows Status = Rebuild. If I enter in the software raid panel the folowing message is showed: "Volumes with "Rebuild" status will be rebuilt within the operating system"The system starts normally... but this message status stays permanently even I restart the system again

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Configuring Intel Graphics Driver

Aug 24, 2010

My system occasionally, not often, but enough to bring me to do something about it, keeps freezing. Hard lock-ups. This is a known bug for openSUSE 11.3 and intel video cards. So, I tried some suggestions and updated my kernel to 2.6.35. Nope. Same prob. I updated Xorg, mesa, drm, cairo (had to go to Factory for that one). I finally got all the requirements met as listed on Intel Linux Graphics: 2010Q2 and I download the intel 2d driver, since it's newer than what comes with openSUSE, even in Factory (xorg-x11-driver-video-intel-legacy 2.9.1).Now, when I go to compile the driver, it errors out on ./configure.how do I let this intel driver package know where xorg-server is?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Multiple With 'Intel' Graphics Driver In 11.4?

Mar 19, 2011

I've been using Mandriva (and predecessors) for ten years or so, but that distro really seems to be dying at the moment. Consequently, I am trying to move over my various PCs to SUSE. I've started with my EEEPC 901 which has a 945GME integrated graphics chip. Using Mandriva 2010.2 it works fine and I can have desktop effects (built into KDE) running with no problems. However, with KDE on openSUSE 11.4 I get irregular freezes, although I can still work within the focussed window. Moving around though, clicking on other parts of the desktop etc. doesn't work, then after a few seconds they all happen at once. I am getting the following error multiple times in the X log, which I suspect is associated:

Code:
EQ overflowing. The server is probably stuck in an infinite
loop.

I note this supposedly fixed bug report that may be relevant:[URL].. Secondly, I am getting hopeless 3D speed (glxinfo reports SGI and has all expected output). Desktop effects won't work at all, on boot it pops up a message saying they are disabled as too slow. I know it isn't a benchmark, but glxgears gives about 50, it used to give over 500. I remember a few X versions back having to enable UXA mode instead of EXA in the 'intel' driver, but presumably that is no longer needed and I cannot see any effect of doing that now (in the xorg.conf.d device file). According to the X log, X is definitely using 'intel' driver, not fb etc.

OpenSUSE Install :: DPT PM3334UW RAID Device Driver Available?

Aug 14, 2010

I am hoping there is somebody out there who might recall DPT hardware and be able to get it to work under Linux. DPT were bought up by Adaptec but made great SCSI cards. The PM3334UW is a true hardware raid device which I have been using in SOHO environment for the last 7 years or so with IBM Warp 4.52 (MCP2). The box, although legacy hardware is sound and I wish to keep it running but hoped to have an openSUSE option. Unfortunately I cannot find a driver for the SCSI RAID card. There are a good deal of posts concerning eata_dma.c and other eata based drivers as possibles but when I load the eata driver that is available when loading openSUSE 11.3 I am asked for parameters and I haven't a clue what these should be.

OpenSUSE Install :: RAID Driver In Dual Boot System?

Feb 11, 2010

I just installed SUSE 11.2 as dual-boot with WinXP on an older system that has a 160GB PATA drive and a 500GB SATA RAID drive. I left about 80GB on the PATA drive unpartitioned to accommodate SUSE. During the initial installation attempt, SUSE was determined to install on the RAID drive instead of the PATA drive, so I disabled the SATA drivers in the BIOS to force the installation on the PATA drive. This was successful, but now there is no access to the RAID drive from SUSE because there is no driver and it is not mounted. I reactivated the SATA drivers in the BIOS and the RAID drive reappeared in WinXP with everything intact. The SATA drives now appear in SUSE under Hardware Information as "/dev/sdb" and "/dev/sdc" and the listed driver is "sata_sil".

So how do I get the RAID drivers installed in SUSE and then mount the drive so it can be browsed/modified from Dolphin? I would also like to be able to browse/change this drive from other computers on my home network through samba, just like with WinXP.

I cannot install 11.3 on a machine with an intel raid controller I have tried with raid 1 using the card and then setting the disks to individual raid 0 and letting suse raid them. With the card doing it the machines crashes as soon as it tries to boot the first time, with suse doing the raid I just get 'GRUB' on the screen It seems a lot of people are having similar problems, does any one have any pointers. 11.2 installs fine. I would try and do a bug report but every time I go to the page it's in Czech

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Intel 945GM 3D Driver Says "Unknown Classic (7.8.2)" On 11.3

Jul 18, 2010

I've got a Toshiba R500 with a Intel 945 GM graphics card that in 11.2 worked perfectly with 2D and 3D drivers from Intel that were installed automatically via the install or yast update. With 11.3 I have the Intel 2D driver, but the 3D driver says "Unknown Classic (7.8.2)" when looking at the details through the My Computer icon on the desktop. I did some searching on these forums and google but haven't been able to find an answer, has driver support for the Intel 945 GM been removed because it's old hardware or is there just no driver in the repo's for 11.3 yet?

Fedora Installation :: Intel ICH RAID In BIOS - Use Or Not?

Jan 5, 2010

As I understand, Fedora 12 sets up Intel ICH (when set in BIOS) as mdraid instead of dmraid.I would like to setup my 2 SATA hard drives so ultimately my /boot partition is RAID1, my / (ROOT) partition is RAID 1, and my swap is either RAID0, or fstab referencing 2 partitions on 2 of the drives, both set with pri=0 (which supposedly is equivalent to striping of RAID0, performance wise).

Assuming Fedora 12 uses mdraid for my configuration in either instance, am I better of enabling, or disabling the RAID mode in the BIOS? This system is strictly Fedora--no dual booting, no Windows. Any performance gains; reliability benefits between either scenario?It's a Intel P35 motherboard with ICH9R. Storage configuration is either "AHCI" or "RAID"

I ran into some strange issues with dropping drives with the RAID set on in BIOS. When it was set, that gave me two md devices of md126 (RAID0, swap) and 127 (RAID1 split between / and /boot). I think I had md126p1 for the SWAP, and md127p1 for /boot and md127p2 for / Within purely software, i have:

/dev/sda1 RAID
/dev/sda2 swap
/dev/sda3 RAID

[code]...

I suppose unless the BIOS enabled RAID is supposed to be faster, I'll stick with a purely software route and keep the BIOS set to AHCI.

Ubuntu Installation :: New 9.10 On A Machine With Intel Raid?

Jan 22, 2010

This question is going to flag me as being a bit green to Ubuntu, but I must confess that in 15+ years in I.T., I have never had such a hard time understanding the partitioning scheme. Here's where I'm at.

I installed from the 9.10 live CD and selected the option to use the entire disk. The system has an Intel raid controller built in to the motherboard and two 80GB hard drives in a mirrored configuration. The system has previously been used with both XP and FreeBSD and never had an issue with partitioning or, more importantly, getting the boot manager to work.

So the live CD partitioned my hard drives, installed all the software and mount points, and claims that everything is finished. When I reboot, no boot device is found. If I then boot again from the live CD and select the option to boot from the hard disk, it does and I am in fact typing this message from the system. However, nothing I can do will make the thing boot without the bloody CD.

I've spent hours trying to figure out how to make grub work, or how to fix the MBR but no luck. The drives don't show up as /dev/hda or as anything logical that I can discern, so I can't even construct a workable install-grub command. Doing a df gives me this:

[Code]...

which is not very informative, is it? FreeBSD was never such a pain to make boot.Frankly, I'm not very impressed that a clean install (non dual boot) on such a standard hardware configuration could be so difficult to make the boot loader work. Documentation on this subject is voluminous but very shabby. I have searched and searched and I cannot find any mention of hardware mirrored IDE or SATA drives, nor what dev they would show up as. Very frustrating. Every tutorial I've read on installing grub2 or grub just doesn't work, usually because the dev is not right.

Can anyone shed some light on this bizarre behavior and perhaps offer some advice that will allow me to boot this system without the use of a live CD?

Ubuntu Installation :: RAID 5 (Intel) Not Recognized

Jun 21, 2010

I have a system with: - 1 SSD "boot" drive - 3 HDDs in RAID 5. I created my RAID 5 set in BIOS - P6X58D motherboard/Intel Software RAID - Looks and works fine in Windows 7 (Ultimate) 64-bit. I installed Ubuntu 10.04 using wubi - both Windows 7 and Ubuntu systems are on the SSD THE PROBLEM Ubuntu does not appear to recognize my RAID 5 set - when it loads I see a "/dev/sd_ 10 failed" error (sd_=sda, sdb or sdc) along with "no such file or directory" - I can see my 3 HDDs in 'Disk Utility,' but the space/partition information is incorrect - I reinstalled all packages related to RAID (dmraid, etc.)

Ubuntu :: Installing In A Intel S875WP1-E With Raid?

Oct 29, 2010

I have a server with an Intel S875WP1-E motherboard and 4 HD of 400Gb each. If i use the raid utility from the motherboard it doesn't appear during disk detection, so i disabled it. I've rebooted and launch installer from the DVD and it displays correctly 4 HD. I've configured them, installed the OS and installed GRUB in MBR (grub install /dev/sda /dev/sdb /dev/sdc /dev/sdd). But when i reboot it asks me to switch for a correct system disk.

I've look into BIOS configuration. If i make a raid array using the bios utility, i can choose any array in boot device priority, but if there is no array defined, i can't select anythig (but the DVD drive).

Ubuntu :: Intel RAID Controller - Showing 2 Drives?

Apr 24, 2010

I shall start off by saying that I have just jumped from Windows 7 to Ubuntu and am not regretting the decision one bit. I am however stuck with a problem. I have spent a few hours google'ing this and have read some interesting articles (probably way beyond what the problem actually is) but still don't think I have found the answer.I have installed:

Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu lucid (development branch)
Release: 10.04
Codename: lucid

I am running the install on an old Dell 8400. My PC has an Intel RAID Controller built into the MB. I have 1 HDD (without RAID) (which is houses my OS install) and then I have 2 1TB drives (These are just NTFS formatted drives with binary files on them nothing more.) in a RAID 1 (Mirroring) Array. The Intel RAID Controller on Boot recognizes the Array as it always has (irrespective of which OS is installed) however, unlike Windows 7 (where I was able to install the Intel RAID controller driver) .Does anyone know of a resolution (which doesn't involve formatting and / or use of some other software RAID solution) - to get this working which my searches have not taken me too?

Fedora Hardware :: RAID - Intel Matrix Storage Manager

Mar 28, 2010

I recently bought a new system that has an Intel Matrix Storage Manager "RAID controller" (ICH10R/DO) on it. I'm a bit baffled over what this really is. I see at [URL] that this controller is supported by the Linux dmraid and mdadm commands and supported in the 2.6 kernel version for quite a while. This looks as though it is some sort of convergence of a brain-dead hardware chipset that requires software installed in the OS to manage it. Kind of reminds me of the wimpy Windows modems of the past. How I deployed. I set up two Seagate ST31500541AS disks as a mirrored pair in the hardware controller interface (CTL-I setup after POST).

I installed Fedora 12 in the usual fashion, though was confusing considering I expected a single "RAID device" to be seen by Anaconda. I went ahead and set up the two native /dev/sda and /dev/sdb as a mirrored RAID device on installation (mdadm under the cover). Recently, Palimpsest is insisting that I have a disk problem with "Disk has many bad sectors" error on /dev/sdb. When I run "dmraid -s" it tells me that the meta device is OK and I see no hardware errors in the messages log. I'm not having kernel panics as others seem to have had on RHEL 5.x.

Ubuntu Servers :: PCIe RAID Controller With 4 Intel SSDs?

Jan 12, 2011

I have been thinking about upgrading my RAID setup from a pair of Intel X25s running the software based RAID included with ubuntu to four Intel X25s running off a PCIe based controller. The controller is an HP P400 which I know works great on ubuntu (I have other machines running it with SAS drives). My desktop has an Intel S5000XVNSATAR mainboard and I have an open PCIe v1.0 8x (physical) slot that is wired 4x. The controller is 8x and will fit fine. How much of a performance hit do you think I will see running this 8x controller in the slot wired 4x with four Intel x25s in a RAID 10? Will I have enough bandwidth with the 4x for those SSD's?

General :: Unable To Access Intel Fake RAID 1 Array In Fedora 14 After Reboot

Jan 6, 2011

1st I am relatively new to linux (but not to *nix). I have 4 disks assembled in the following intel ahci bios fake raid arrays:

2x320GB RAID1 - used for operating systems md126
2x1TB RAID1 - used for data md125

I have used the raid of size 320GB to install my operating system and the second raid I didn't even select during the installation of Fedora 14. After successful partitioning and installation of Fedora, I tried to make the second array available, it was possible to make it visible in linux with mdadm --assembe --scan , after that I created one maximum size partition and 1 maximum size ext4 filesystem in it. Mounted, and used it. After restart - a few I/O errors during boot regarding md125 + inability to mount the filesystem on it and dropped into repair shell. I commented the filesystem in fstab and it booted. To my surprise, the array was marked as "auto read only":

and the partition in it was not available as device special file in /dev:
