Highpoint RocketRAID 62x, 64x and 27x0

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Yesterday i was tinkering with my xpenology because my wifi didn't work (still doesn't work btw).

Anyway i had a Highpoint rocketraid 620 laying around doing nothing, so tried it in the xpenology machine and lo and behold it didn't work.

 

Well to make a long story short i found this website:https://blog.hqcodeshop.fi/archives/266-HighPoint-RocketRAID-620-Linux-driver.html and searched for some information about cross-compiling, and what do you know, it seems to work with dsm 5.2-5565.

 

You can download the .ko file right here -->http://1drv.ms/1NOtZTi, i also cross-compiled the modules for the 64x and 27x0 series card just for fun(didn't test them).

 

dsemg output:

Don't execly know what "failed to hard reset" and "failed to perform port hard reset" is all about.

 

At this point i can't get it to load at boot. So for now its not practical but at least its a start.

I got my Highpoint from Ebay. Worldwide i suppose Ebay will be a good source. But there will be plenty of other hardware shops in each and every country that will sell you a RAID card.

Hi @R&R,

 

I've been trying to get the driver for rr2680 compiled but it's getting very frustrating, do you have any tips on how to go about it? the things come in sort of packed automatic installer files. i get the drivers out, but when i try to crosscompile with the right toolchain, and the right kerneldir it just does nothing when you press enter.

compiling it against the running kernel works just fine.

 

Any help would be very much apreciated
