Hi,

I have a spare HP DL380 G3 which I wish to load linux onto. I have a copy of Fedora 13 32bit, but am unable to install it.

It has a Xeon CPU and 3GB of RAM and a HP 5i RAID card. I have configured a raid 1 and a raid 5 array.

After booting from the install dvd, I get "Your system does not appear to have any hard drives. Would you like to configure additional devices?"

I select yes and it then asks me for a driver disk source - this is the problem I can't find drivers on HP's website for Fedora - what should I do?

Thanks.

With that older hardware I would think it should just be detected on new version of Fedora. Have you tried some other distro (eg. Ubuntu) to see if it is a software or hardware issue ?

The driver it uses is here:
http://cciss.sourceforge.net/

As per the comments on that page:

"the cciss driver has been in the Linux kernel for a very long time, and most distributions will already have a cciss driver which will work for you as is"

It looks like the driver was included in the installer but it wouldn't see the raid disks. After plugging a usb pen in it detected local storage and progressed to the install so that I could detect the raid controller.
