I have an Oracle Database Server that I really need to get a new RAID card for. Here is one of the issues... Currently, my existing raid card's drivers need to be compiled into the kernel. However, the problem is that when I apply an updated kernel from Oracle, I loose the RAID support on my system.
Are there any RAID Cards whose drivers are module-based?
If not, is there a reason why these drivers need to be compiled into the kernel?
