    FURTHER TESTING - perfectly stable

    I have been able to transfer approximately 6TB (read/write) without any problems.
    I haven't been able to test the max speed because I've been using HDD's, but while transferring at about 250MB/s (3 HDD's at once), the card handled heat dissipation competently (it was never scorching to the touch).

    So, I'd say it's been successful... I'm inclined to keep the cards.

    PERMANENT INSTALLATION?

    Can anyone comment on a good way to use the sudo insmod atlantic.ko command to install the driver after a reboot? thanks!

    Run
    Code:
    echo atlantic | sudo tee -a /etc/modules

    Sorry for the delays in my reply. I am away from home for a few weeks.
    PERMANENT INSTALLATION?
    Which leaves me with the question, how can I make this a permanent installation? I'm new to linux, so I'm just feeling my way, but I understand
    Code:
    sudo insmod /home/madumi/Atlantic/atlantic.ko
    only installs the driver till the next reboot. Do I need to automate this command at boot time, or is there a better way to make this a permanent installation?
    I suggest that you do:
    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/rc.local
    Amend the file to read:
    Code:
    #!/bin/sh -e
    
    insmod /home/madumi/Atlantic/atlantic.ko
    
    exit 0
    Save and close the text editor.

    That's perfect! It works nicely after reboot.

    Out of interest, the #!/bin/sh -e on the first line of the script is commented out by the # right? Or does it accomplish something the way it's written?

    haha, and I owe you big time for all the help you've given me... I don't know how to say thanks enough!

    It does. The well-known #! also known as crunch bang, is part of shell scripting, about which I am almost ignorant.

    Glad it's working!

    This has all been extremely helpful, as I was attempting exactly the same thing. I managed to get everything working on 4.12 kernel, and then the kernel panic came. I don't have a video card, so I could only be sure the computer was freezing.

    I downgraded the kernel to 4.4, updated grub, removed the other kernels, rebooted
    For some reason, I kept trying to insmod atlantic.o instead of atlantic.ko .... wasted quite a bit of time.

    Finally it is all up and running again, and now hopefully, no more kernel panic =) If I don't post again, then all is beautiful. Thanks again.

    Once I had it up and running on kernel 4.4, it's been rock solid ever since--no issues at all. Hope you get the same mileage
