This binary RPM may then be installed in the usual way, for instance: As for the GPT partition problem, I had a lot of issues installing Slackware on my new laptop with a GPT partition, using gdisk finally got everything working for me without errors. The installer comes pre-loaded with additional non-free firmware blobs which helps as you don’t need to modify the official iso’s. Works fine, but after reboot no display visible. Unfortunately, it listed all the partitions in fstab without the p’s, so I had to edit that.

The server has also a 2-port Pi Smart Array controller integrated on the mainboard. I can’t provide any more details as I didn’t bother debugging this any further and just installed CentOS 6 cxiss until is more than enough for this server. First, as noted they stop mkinitrd working during an upgrade. Would probably be very useful for debugging.

– cciss driver panic with HP Smart Array

If you’ve already got current firmware applied, I’m thinking it’s a flakey SA64xx. Alternatively, you can obtain non-official CD images with external firmware loading enabled; see Firmware. Are there any error messages when the driver loads? You can use these if you have a supported distribution running a supported kernel.


cciss(4) – Linux man page

Also some issues with GPT partition table on internal usb boot drive but have worked through most of those. Last updated March 4, latest version is 4.

When multiple Smart Array controllers are installed in a server, and the first one discovered by cciss is NOT the boot controller you get a Kernel panic. Kernel panic Expected Results: The normal sym53c8xx driver does NOT load, inducing the Loax panic. Fixed “out of memory” error introduced in the 2.

Installing the ccisz package solves this issue not sure if not installing it penalizes the CPU too much though. I’ve flashed to 3. Thanks – dr. If you’d like to contribute content, let us know.

Tried with both update2 and update3. The binary RPMs created by the source RPMs here do not do these things, they only build the driver module and initrd image. Visit the following links: Last edited by flyinggeorge; at How do I fix these modules or where can I get new ones?

Hangs loading cciss driver during installation |VMware Communities

Run HP Diagnostics and determine if the card is responding properly, perhaps the onboard memory is in error, the card is not seated properly, or there is some other hardware issue. You’ll find out soon enough if you do try to use it. So when you boot with the new kernel there ccoss an initrd to load cciss.

BTW, cciss you happen across a 2. However, if I have any array raid 0,1 or 5 with 1, 2 3 or 4 drives it hangs. I’ve tried to install either cciss. Fixed race condition that could show up during driver init.
