  1. I'd be interested in this too, does DSM actually use all the cpu's and not just the hard coded 2 limit imposed. I'm currently running Jun's mod v1.01 with DSM 6.0.2 and 2 cpu's passed through via ESXi 6.5. So far its running nicely, but I'd like to bump up the cpu count (only if it will use it). On a side note, is there a restriction on the amount of memory DSM can use? Cheers Asgaroth

    Cheers, that worked a treat

    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    Hi All, Quick question, is there a vmware tools package for this edition of xpenology? I tried to search this thread for a couple keywords and I didn't see any hits, so I thought I'd ask. Any suggestions appreciated. Cheers Asgaroth
  5. This is a re-post from the DSM loader thread, thought I'd put it here too. Hi All, Thank you to all the contributors for the new boot loader. I've just tried the vmware edition and so far so good. The only issue I have thus far in my testing is the ability to detect my HighPoint RocketRAID 2720SGL controller which has all my disks attached. @Trantor was kind enought to build the driver for me for the XPEnology 5.5 bootloader. The link to the post for this one is here. I tried to manually load that module in this version, but it complains of an invalid file format, so I'm guessing

  8. I think it must be enabled in the kernel as I can see my ethernet adapters using MSI: 74: 3 65667835 PCI-MSI-edge eth0-rxtx-0 75: 91704218 1 PCI-MSI-edge eth0-rxtx-1 76: 5 3 PCI-MSI-edge eth0-event-2 I wonder, does the driver have a compile time option for MSI/MSI-X?
  9. @Trantor Doing big file transfers to the rocketraid device results in high cpu usage (roughly 60%) of which 50 - 55% is spent in system time, it looks like it is high interrupt usage, but I cannot confirm it (i usually confirm using mpstat or some such monitoring tool), I checked /proc/interrupts and i see very high interrupt usage for this card. I'm pretty sure this card is msi/msi-x capable but i cannot do a modinfo on the kernel module to see if there is a module parameter to toggle to enable it. It looks like it is using "legacy" interrupt mode :/
  10. I totally agree with your way to load the driver. Much proper than mine In the bootloader. Inside zImage there are the kernel (bzImage) and the ramdrive (rd.gz). Unfortunately the ramdrive is packed inside the kernel, so it's very difficult to edit it. This prevent us to edit/update the ramdrive but also "protect" it from the outside world. It would be nice if dev team can update the release with the last change on this thread like usb lan adapter, rocketraid, missing dependency for ixgbe... The real question is : does your rocketraid adapter works with this driver ? OK th
  11. Hi, thanks for the tip, I added the following snippet: if [ -f /lib/modules/rr272x_1x.ko ]; then KERNEL_MODULES="${KERNEL_MODULES} rr272x_1x" fi Just after the following snippet: if [ -f /lib/modules
  12. Hi, thanks for the update, I tried to add the rmmod/insmod parameters to isolinux.cfg, I can see that the mvsas modules is not loaded, but for the rocketraid driver it does not seem to load on bootup. I have tried the following 2 parameters in isolinux.cfg: DiskStation> cat /proc/cmdline BOOT_IMAGE=/zImage root=/dev/md0 ihd_num=0 netif_num=4 syno_hw_version=DS3615xs sn=B3J4N01003 vid=0x0EA0 pid=0x2168 loglevel=0 vga=0x305 rmmod=mvsas insmod=/lib/modules/rr272x_1x.ko DiskStation> cat /proc/cmdline BOOT_IMAGE=/zImage root=/dev/md0 ihd_num=0 netif_num=4 syno_hw_version=DS361
  13. Hi Trantor, Thank you for building those drivers, I will definately give them a go. I logged into my nas box and I cannot find a syslinux.cfg file anywhere on the system. I currently use the 5.2-5592.2 boot iso image to boot up my system, I mounted that iso up on a linux box and that doesnt have a syslinux.cfg file in it either. Where does the syslinux.cfg file reside within the DSM environment?
  14. Just an update, I upgraded to XPEnoboot 5.2.5592.2 and it appears there is a highpoint driver for the 3xxx/4xxx range of cards, also, it looks like the mvsas driver is a newer version to XPEnoboot 5.2.5565.2. After updating to the newer version, mvsas detected my disks again and the disk groups/volumes are currently being checked. This one looks a little more promising but it is early days yet, I'll keep an eye on it and provide feedback if anything dodgy comes around. PS: I still see errors in the dmesg output for the mvsas driver and the RR 2720SGL, I'm not sure what it is trying to do,
  15. I just want to say that there is a driver in the current XPEnoboot called mvsas which does seem to work ok with this card. Normally we want a rr27x0_XX.ko driver as the mvsas has had trouble with losing communication with drives in the past. I am uncertain if this problem still exists. I have the RocketRAID 2720SGL card attached and the problem does still exist, I have rebooted several times today and my data volume that are on the disks attached to 2720 just will not come back. It's currently hit & miss with the mvsas driver and the RR 2720SGL. I'd be a very happy man if the driv
