help to compile driver for DSM5 - n54l

Recommended Posts

All,

 

I am trying to use my HP raid smart array card but driver is not present in the DSM5 kernel and I need to get it.

I download legqcy driver (hpsa) for kernel.org version, follow the xpenology guide here : http://xpenology.com/wiki/en/building_xpenology to get the toolchain, that I installed on an X86_64 ubuntu VM, but I am still not able to compile it. I can compile in native mode (make), buit when cross compiling, I have an execvp error when gcc is invoked.

I downloaded the bromolow compiler version for DSM.

SO far I think I did the right thing but clearly it's not the case. So if someont can help me compiling this, it would be great.

Ok so I succeed to correctly compile my driver even if not working in DSM, I could see it taken into account in kernel after insmod.

Here is the web page that really helped me:

http://hallard.me/how-to-install-kernel ... 0-dsm-4-1/

It actually got all GPL sources and install configuration on the kernel. After this, as my driver is into the drop, a simple >>make modules compiled and did the driver.ko to give to insmod.

what you can do is following it and look for the driver into the make menuconfig. if so , activate and compile it. Ensure to take the correct version versus what you have, otherwise kernel will not accept the module.

Can you say what raid card you have in use in your N54L?

Is it P410 with battery pack and 512 memory card?

I assume that disk hibernation can't be executed since all drives connected to raid card have to spin permanently...???
