  1. Ah i totally missed your comment, sorry hah. Not really sure ref how to get different streams out, however i know that Optical (SPDIF isnt it?) can support up to 5 or 6 different channels down the same wire, perhaps something can be done with that on a Rasberry Pi - and interesting project indeed.
  2. @moda From reading about the technology you want to use, it seems that a lot of people have had some good success using a Rasberry Pi (with audio output) and using shairsync to connect directly to the Synology using the itunes sharing service (AudioStation i believe it's called) While this could incur a new cost, that being the cost of a RasPi - I personally feel that this would be a better solution that trying to compile drivers, bug fix all of that path etc etc with little to no support. Just my two cents
  3. Update: I've tried a load of different versions of the hpsa driver, none of them seem to work correctly as described. Weirdly, they do detect the logical volumes, but writing/reading to the disks is impossible. I've attempted to use different flags as described in the KCLASS3B section, but as you say it's very kernel specific and changing these flags causes the driver to not compile for various reasons. It could be useful to get the source code to the 5.2 XPEnoboot loader, so the working driver in that binary can be inspected, but I dont think this is an option.
  4. Sure no problem ref testing, i've built a driver build env so i can build drivers when i need. I will try an earlier version, but unsure how well it will go - will post findings.
  5. Hi IG-88, Thanks for the info, really helpful. Is it 15047branch i need, or another?
  6. Hey IG-88, I've come back to Xpenology after a long duration away from it (since 5.2 got released, to now). However, I have noticed that the HP Driver for the P410i does not load as you have specified, has there been/will there be any progress on this, or should i just install FreeNAS or simalar for now?
  7. I wont have time to do it now until a few more days. However, if you want to take a stab at it anyways, and you're knowledgeable about Linux and the make tool, the files you need are here: I use Ubuntu 12.04 to build against. (You need:, bromolow-gcc493_glibc220_linaro_x86_64-GPL.txz)
  8. I can make a tutorial when i'm back home.
  9. No matter, I've figured it out now - even if the sodding driver i want to compile has C errors...
  10. Hey, I was wondering if i could get some help from someone who has experiance in building drivers for Synology 6.0+? I have found a few help files and readme files on how to manually compile new drivers for the Synology, however I am a little confused... The tutorial i found is this one: clicky here However, the files that i can download from the actual tutorial are around 1.2-1.6GB in size, but the files for build 8451 are around 200mb If someone can point me in the right direction, that would be great. Thanks
  11. Working using Jun's loader on VMWare ESXi 6.5 (hwv 10)
  12. I tried everything to get the damn thing to install, resorted to using Jun's loader in the end which worked for me. I'm sure QuickNick will fix these problems with 2.3
  13. Make sure your PID/VID is correct, this is a known problem. The setup assistant will not recognise any DSM firmware if it cannot verify where the install disk is physically on your system. Read quicknick's instructions on how to find your IDs Both should be formatted in along the lines of 0x0000. My question regarding this is, if you're installing it from VMWare you wont have any USB stick plugged in - did i miss something?
  14. You sir have won The Internet Thank you, all done an upgraded to Update 6 as well. Cheers

  16. Hi, Firstly thanks for your efforts to everyone involved to get us to a better version of Synology DSM. However, I have failed to successfully install this onto VMWare ESXi 6.5 (using Hardware Version 10). It always errors with the usual "Unable to install, the install file might be corroupt (13)" error. I have checked the MD5 Sum of the package against what Synology have and the package is okay. Unsure what to do now. Can provide messages log if needed
  17. Okay so, I will post my findings here in case anyone else has a similar adapter and wants to know how to make it work with RDMs I gave up in the end trying to get the driver to compile for the Synology box, I started to work on getting a different Adaptec RAID controller that i had lying around working (it's a 5 series, instead of the 3 series i was trying before) Using the previous controller i created 12 RAID 0 volumes with 1 disk (kinda to emulate JBOD) because i wanted to use SHR in Synology as i had different sized disks, but later found that your RAID controller must expose a cer
  18. Turns out i cannot create RDM's with adaptec controllers... ugh
  19. XPEnology/Synology dudes: I have a RAID card, it is the Adaptec RAID 31205 ( ... sas-31205/). When the bootloader boots, i see it load the AACRAID module, the LED's on the HDD's and controller blink as the card is initializing, but then the card crashes (three LED's blink each second, which means "Hardware Error") Does the AACRAID module that comes with xpenology only work with certain Adaptec RAID cards? I also attempted to download the drivers source code and use ipkg plus the make command to re-make the aacraid module files, but when ru
