    RocketRaid 2310 Compile Driver & Install

    I would like to use a HighPoint RocketRaid 2310 Controller with Ubuntu 10.04 LTS to control 2 Raid 1 Arrays. There is not a precompiled driver available for 10.04. Is there a description of how to compile the driver from source code and install it or can someone describe this process?
    Thanks,
    Scott

    Download the open source driver from here: http://www.highpoint-tech.com/USA_new/series_rr2300.htm

    Make sure you have linux-headers installed for yer kernel and then compile the driver with make install

    Here's my lazy script:

    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    
    URL=http://www.support-highpoint-tech.com/Main/rr231x_00/Linux/opensrc/
    DRIVER=rr231x_0x-linux-src-v2.5-091022-1618.tar.gz
    
    apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r)
    wget $URL$DRIVER && tar -xf $DRIVER && cd rr231x_0x-linux-src-v2.5/product/rr2310pm/linux && make install
    Run it with sudo.

    That's it? You must be an Ubuntu God. Thank you so much. I'm off to restore back to a clean install and try it out.

    I have a similar card (26xx) and I have to compile the driver from source.

    Don't forget to mark the thread as solved from the thread tools menu.

    I feel Like I got close. I changed the URL and then got the following:

    Thanks for being patient. If it gives you any insight I had to go write my "Hello World" bash script to get to this point.

    Try running this in the current directory:

    Code:
    tar -xf rr231x_0x-linux-src-v2.5-091022-1618.tar.gz

    Re: RocketRaid 2310 Compile Driver & Install

    That ran. Can I substitute it for part of the part of the line that starts 'wget'?

    It's already extracted the tar, so you'd only have to do this:

    Code:
    cd rr231x_0x-linux-src-v2.5/product/rr2310pm/linux
    sudo make install

    Re: RocketRaid 2310 Compile Driver & Install

    That ran too!

    It looks like 'cd rr231x_0x-linux-src-v2.5/product/rr2310pm/linux'
    was already in the wget line.

    Why did it not work there and is there a way to correct the script for my directories?

    Are the drivers installed now? Will they load at each start up if they are? Thanks again for all this help.

    It should have worked, I tested it before I posted it.

    *shrugs*

    The drivers will load every time you boot. If you upgrade the kernel, you'll need to reinstall the drivers.
