I am trying to upgrade a Dell 2950 Perc 6i from  6.3.1-0003 to 6.3.3-0002

I am running Centos 5.4 64 bit

I download the .bin from from dell and run it as root

It fails with this message,

Collecting inventory...
Running validation...

This Update Package is not compatible with your system configuration.

The strange thing is that I just upgraded the 6e  for our MD1000 in the same box with no problems.

Are you using the update for the INTEGRATED version of the PERC 6/i, directly from the downloads for the 2950 (as opposed to "searching" for a PERC 6/i update that might actually be for the adapter version - the adapter and integrated versions have slightly different files)?

This is the BIN for the integrated version (like in the 2950):

This is for the adapter version (NOT used in a 2950):
