Problems trying to use hpt371 driver
I've an old MSI matx motherboard, with a slot A athlon (it's that old). I've added a HighPoint single IDE connecter PCI IDE card to it (to support my large disks). I'm running RedHat 7.3 .
I downloaded the driver from the HighPoint site and went through the test stage
insmod hpt371.o and that worked fine.
So I then followed the advice for installing the module, namely:
install -d /lib/modules/2.14.18-3/kernel/drivers/scsi
install -c hpt371.o /lib/modules/2.14.18-3/kernel/drivers/scsi
As I have no other SCSI adapters, I amended /etc/modules.conf and added
probeall block-major-8 hpt371
options -k hpt371
as per the instructions and rebooted. However, that didn't load the module, and I still had to used insmod to load it. What stage have I missed out?
Thanks in advance.
