Hi Jerry Yes, the ips driver are only in the <5.x Version.... No when i read the specs right then it must be buildet in the Boot Install Kernel of the 5.x Version.
I think this IBM Server Motherboard an ServeRaid 6i are the big problem :( last chance...:) Is it possible a 5.xx to install on a laptop to make current with cvsup and make a special Kernel (shure is't true...), but how i make from this build a ISO, that i can burning to cdrom ans install on the server? If there have some guidance, URL to to that? thank you Michel Jerry, ".ch" are in Switzerland :) ----- Original Message ----- From: "Jerry McAllister" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> To: "Michel Schwab" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Cc: <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Sent: Monday, February 16, 2004 4:06 PM Subject: Re: Install Troubles on IBM x searie 345 and ServeRaid 6i > > > > Hi > > > > We have here in the office two new server maschines. > > IBM x Server 345 with a Raid Controller: ServeRaid 6i > > > > I have download the latest FreeBSD Version 5.2.1 RC2 12.2.04 > > > > But the Kernel doen't find the Raid Controller, it's say: No driver attached > > > > When i read the doc's it must be compiled in the main kernel (IPS are the > > driver), from the Install CD Rom. > > Yes, i have try to install with the Floppy Version, too... in drivers.flp > > see IPS Driver... > > I don't have a 5.xx here to look at right now, but in 4.9, the latest I > have, I don't find an IPS driver listed in lint.
