Fixes & Enhancements

Linux Megaraid_sas driver for SLES10SP4.

Installation instructions

The driver package is a compressed tar file.

To extract the components within the tar file, un-tar the files:  # tar -xvzf 

Extracted files should contain the following:
- dkms rpm (dkms-.rpm)
- driver rpm (megaraid_sas-.rpm)
- source code (megaraid_sas--src.tgz)

Updating the Driver:

The SLES10SP4 native (in-box) driver is for OS installation only. The driver must be upgraded once the OS installation is done.

1. Install the DKMS rpm package if needed. Use this command 
      # rpm -ivh 
   NOTE: Use rpm -Uvh  when updating an existing package.
2. Install the Driver package. Use this command 
      # rpm -ivh 

3. Verify the driver has been loaded with this system command:
      # modinfo megaraid_sas

   and this dkms command:
      # dkms status

   The version shown in the output should match in both cases and with the version of the package.
