Attached you will find a useful technical document that covers the following:

  • Compiling and Installing Drivers for Promise Controllers


  • Creating a Driver Install Disk for other Distributions


  • RH4.0 AS/ES/WS Update 4 In-kernel Driver install Procedure


  • Creating File-Systems and Mounting


  • Benchmarking in Linux

Attached you will also find a kernel "SuperTrak_EX Linux Distribution Kernel Versions.pdf" to help understand what kernel builds have in kernel driver support and which kernels we offer pre compiled drivers or simply driver source.

Even though we offer in kernel driver source it is recommended to update the driver either using the precompiled driver or compile your own from source.

It is also recommended to use matching code sets (driver, Firmware, Bios etcetera from the same Service Release)
