I am sorry for the letter, but allow to address to you with my problem.
Has bought Promise SX-6000 Pro the controller and has established on him
Linux Redhat. All - is excellent!! Has updated a nucleus for 2.6.5 - I
can not pick up the controller in any way. Source codes of a nucleus
taking place on your site do not approach for 2.6 nucleus :(

Can you know the possible decision of my problem??

Yours faithfully and hope, Alexey.

P.S.1 firmware drivers for 2.4.x kernel download is


In make menuconfig has disconnected support of all PDC Promise. Has
included all I2O devices in a nucleus.

ns linux # cat .config|grep I2O
# I2O device support

dmesg send 0 i2o controllers
