    Re: [HOWTO] Highpoint RocketRAID 2640x4 Driver Install

    Just installed kernel 3.7, now this doesnt work again, does any one know how to get the patch to work with 3.7 or future proof it with 3.8 compatability. Thanks in advance.

    Thanks all! Manage to patch the 3.7.1 kernel according to this patch. Now my rr2680 is working on 3.7.1 .
    Hopefully the same will work on 3.8 when its released.

    Re: [HOWTO] Highpoint RocketRAID 2640x4 Driver Install

    Could someone do an updated guide? The current driver version is 1.9. There's also an archive with old files, but they're a bunch of install scripts with no real instructions. I'm trying to get a 2640X1 card working on 10.04 64-bit. Looks like the download with the install scripts is only for kernal 2.6.32-21 as well. Current is 2.6.32-45, I believe.

    Can someone post the patch to get this working on 3.7.0 kernel? I can't seem to fix it myself.

    Re: [HOWTO] Highpoint RocketRAID 2640x4 Driver Install

    pals0007's method works pretty well until kernel 3.10..

    I got
    " unknown field name 'proc_info' " errors during compile...

    Anyone can share the experience on kernel 3.10 ??

    Re: [HOWTO] Highpoint RocketRAID 2640x4 Driver Install

    At the moment none of the open source drivers for any rocketraid card (safe for those with in-kernel sources) seem to support 3.10+
    I made a patch for 2340 which appears to work (tested with Gentoo hardened-sources-3.10.1-r1).

    I've created patches for all rocketraid drivers with a similar structure.
    Also (re)added patchkernel target to all drivers where it was missing.
    Untested save for the rr2340 driver.

    I have just tested this on Ubuntu 13.10 (kernel 3.11.0-12-generic) with RocketRaid 1740, this works flawlessly!
    I cannot thank you enough for this...

    I successfully patched the rr272x driver by looking at camper2's patches. It worked for me with kernel 3.11.0-12-generic.
    Thanks

    New patchset with support for 27xx cards.
    Updated version detection code - patchkernel should now work with an unconfigured kernel source tree without having to set KERNEL_VER
