OK Like the title says this is a Gigabyte GA-7N400 Pro motherboard with the ITE 8212 raid controler
here is a link to the specs on their website.
http://www.giga-byte.com/MotherBoard/Products/Products_GA-7N400%20Pro.htm
from this page if you click drivers... they have a link to the raid drivers for mandrake / redhat / and windows
http://www.giga-byte.com/Motherboard/Support/Driver/Driver_GA-7N400%20Pro.htm

And I know they work on redhat and I assumed that it would work just as well using Fedora Core 1
(Aparently not), I'v tried installing the drivers using the steps for redhat 9.0 excpet it complains that
its not the right kernal version and modprobe fails...

How can I get my raid controller to work???

extra 100 points if it works for my other fedora install using a

Thanks...
and remember (Extra 100pts if its fixed today)

It should be just fine.  Have you tried "insmod -f (module)"? Sometimes you need to give it 'em little nudge.

Should work on both boards.  Depends on who wrote the module.

The Module name is "iteraid.o"

And..the -f didn't work.... with out -f it just says

iteraid.o was compiled for kernel version 2.4.20-8
while this kernel is version 2.4.22-1.2115.nptl

wht the -f I get those 2 and these
iteraid.o: unresolved symbol register_chrdev_R90bf96e3
iteraid.o: unresolved symbol scsi_register_Rce79b934
iteraid.o: unresolved symbol mem_map_R4eab43ce
iteraid.o: unresolved symbol scsi_unregister_Rd7dfbd76

hummmm..............now what???

You might want to try compiling a new driver against your current kernel.

Here is the driver source:
http://www.ite.com.tw/pc/LinuxSrc_it8212_092005-05.zip

Make a directory for it, download and unpack using "unzip LinuxSrc_it8212_092005-05.zip"
(Zip available here: ftp://ftp.info-zip.org/pub/infozip/src/zip23.tar.gz)

I am assuming that you are using Fedora though you did not directly say it.

So, cd into the Red Hat directory "cd RedHat"

Then "make" (you'll need to have the kgcc package installed for kernel copilations)

Now, copy "iteraid.o" to the correct modules directory (something like "/lib/modules/2.4.22/kernel/drivers/md/")

Now your "insmod" without the "-f" should work just fine.

If is does, add "iteraid.o" to your "/etc/modules" file. and your good to go.
