I'll give a try on a Smart Array 532 with FBSD 5.1 as soon as I can (days or weeks). It is working fine with 4.8 now.

RAIDFrame is software raid so it doesn't matter here. You should check
wether your Smart Array is properly supported, first, a good place to
start: http://people.freebsd.org/~msmith/RAID/.

It looks like it is. Mine is a Compaq Smart-2SL Array Controller


Then maybe try to disable APIC at boot (??), as this is known to cause
problems.

I don't have that option, the option menu has an option to "Enable"
APIC support not disable it. I'm using the 5.1 -RELEASE mini-install CD.



But first, go to the BIOS on the server and make sure it is
preset either for Linux OS or for "Other".

Right, I used the Compaq Setup CD, blew away my old FreeBSD 4.6
configuration,
set up a new one including a new array (I added an extra drive), chose
"Other OS" during the manual install and rebooted to install the new OS.




Then maybe make sure your
raid volume(s) is configured with Compaq tools before attempting to
install FreeBSD.

FWIW - I had it running on 4.6 -STABLE just fine before this.


hope this helps

Hi,


I'm trying to install FreeBSD 5.1 -RELEASE on our
Compaq Proliant 2500 server with (4) 9.1G hard drives
using Raid5 and the install hangs at:

/stand/sysinstall running as init on vty0

Is this because of:

"The RAIDframe disk driver described in raid(4) is non-functional for
this
release."

..from the errata?

I tried to search the archives but got an error saying they
aren't available right now.

Thanks

Joe
