Hello,

I"m trying to install on a Dell Poweredge 2080.

Looking at the liveCD settings I get:

livecd ~ # lspci -v | grep -i raid
02:0e.0 RAID bus controller: Dell PowerEdge Expandable RAID controller 4 (rev 06)
Subsystem: Dell PowerEdge Expandable RAID Controller 4e/Di
Kernel driver in use: megaraid
Kernel modules: megaraid_mbox


So, would I choose in the make menuconfig screens:

LSI Logic Legacy MegaRAID Driver (NEW)

To work with what is on my box?

Thank you in advance!!

cayenne

I've found it helps to use the menuconfig search utility. In menuconfig hit '/' and enter "megaraid". See what it finds, you can choose the driver you see from the liveCD.
