I need to install "Fedora Core 15" Linux on to HP Smart Array Controller attached HDD. Problem is Fedora Core 15 kernel do not has HPSA device driver. I tried to load (my own build) HPSA driver (copied) at RAM drive from Fedora installation terminal. So, installation procedure done to HSPA HDD.
But, booting after installation hopelessly failed because there is no HPSA driver in installed Fedora 15 kernel image.
What can be a good solution for this problem?
- Do I need to compile my own Fedora 15 kernel with HPSA driver?
- Or, can I use initrd image (somehow) with HPSA driver to enable HDD during boot process?
It's quite long time ago for me to build Linux kernel to install... Please give your consult on it. Thanks.
