Hi Anil

Thanks for your answer. I am using debian etch, but with kernelsource
from ubuntu(That is because I had problems compiling bnx2i against a
newer open-iscsi because bnx2i would compile againt my kernel
headers(2.6.18 from debian etch which has broken iscsi) which is the
wrong headers because it is from an old version)

The version is 2.6.24.3

Do I need newer iscsi kernel modules than what 2.6.14.3 provides for
using bnx2i ? And if I need that

How can I get the bnx2i driver to compile againt the headers etc. from
openiscsi instead of the kernelsource?

I should metion that I get the:
iscsid: Could not fund uspace transport for bcm570x-040000 when I do
iscsiadm --mode node --targetname <target> --portal <portal ip> --
login

and along with that iscsiadm says:
iscsiadm: initiator reported error (12 - iSCSI driver not found.
Please make sure it is loaded, and retry the operation)

This makes me believe that maybe my kernel modules(from the 2.6.24.3
kernel) is missing some features?

Best Regards
Hasse
