    Promise SuperTrak EX8350 PCIe x4

    I have also been running this nice piece of hardware on my gentoo box for some time now. After I found a kernel patch everything worked like a charm. I have a RAID 1 setup with two 200GB disks. System info: 05:0e.0 RAID bus controller: Promise Technology, Inc. Unknown device 8350 Subsystem: Promise Technology, Inc. Unknown device 0374 Flags: bus master, stepping, 66MHz, medium devsel, latency 96, IRQ 17 Memory at d4000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) Expansion ROM at d3000000 [disabled] Capabilities: [c0] Power Management version 2 Capabilities: [d0] Message Signalled Interrupts: 64bit+ Queue=0/1 Enable- Capabilities: [e0] PCI-X non-bridge device Mainbord is: nVidia Corporation CK804 Patches that I used:

    Ho ho ho I figured it out. Get the mm patch mm patch and patch your 2.6.16 kernel to get just the supertrack 8350 support without the other more or less stable additions ! Just finished compiling my new kernel - and I cant wait to reboot and see what happens Kernel size 1.8 M - lets rock and roll...

    - Finally figured it out. Downloaded a _plain_ 2.6.16 and used the patch But exactly what kernel option enables the controller ? - I tried the ones that had something todo with PROMISE and TX - but still the controller is not found. I use dmesg to look for what ever hard drives found... Anyone knows how to go about this ?

    Hmmm, how do you get that emerged from gentoo ? The latest version I can find is a 2.6.16 - no 17... At the 17 is only available as a patch. I tried to get the 2.6.16 from and patch it up but ended up with a kernel source that wouldn't even compile

    This guy here seems to have made a patch to move the module inside the Kernel - that should help booting without having to use initrd. Speaking of which - does anyone here know how to use initrd from GRUB ? - I tried making a initrd image mkinitrd but when GRUB tries to execute it I get an error 28 - something about not enough memory to insert.... - which is pretty lame considering I have 4 gig :-) I've ofcurse looked on google - but didn't find anything usefull ;-(
