I am trying to install a qlogic hba card on a fedora 10 running on a 64 bit machine. The hba card model that I need to install is  QLA2340 and the link to the driver installer and specification is:

The hba card is an FC 2gb/s

Please, can some one help me with the installation of the drivers for the hba card?

I downloaded driver version as this seem appropriate.  I decompressed the tgz directory on my desktop and then opened a Terminal on the root directory. I navigated to the decompressed file on the Desktop. Then, I entered the installation file name and clicked enter. Then, I get the message Must be root to install....

[delbin@DNS /]$ cd home/delbin/Desktop/qlafc-linux-
[delbin@DNS qlafc-linux-]$ ./qlinstall
Must be root to install...
[delbin@DNS qlafc-linux-]$

How can I install the drivers for this card successfully?

    Accepted Solution

    You have to either open your terminal as the root user, or if you are allowed to sudo, start the installation using sudo:

    sudo ./qlinstall

    you might ass well get a root access in a terminal uccess with sudo with a command such as :

    sudo su -

    and you are root now you can compile it anway you want.
