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.

Important Information

Power State Transitions:

Note that system power state transitions are not validated on Dell platforms under Linux Operating Systems.


DKMS AUTOINSTALL option should always be disabled in the DKMS configuration file for driver installation.
