Question Driver availability for NForce 2200 / 2050? When?

Hello everybody, I wonder whether drivers for the NForce 2200 / 2050 chipset for Linux have been released? We are expecting two new Dual Opteron servers which are equipped with this chipset and need Linux drivers that support the onboard S-ATA chipset. We don't need the RAID functionality as it's just software RAID, and Linux's MD technology does a better job anyway (I've heard). Is there a rough timeline when drivers for this chipset will be available? Will there be a SuSE 10 driver disk so you can install SuSE 10 directly? Thank you! :-)

I'm using a 2200/2050 board under Gentoo to type this. It works just fine with the sata_nv driver from the kernel, no driver floppy needed. My 2200/2050 has been working since just after NF4 support got into the kernel, about a year and change ago.

Hi,

which board are you using? When I test booted SuSE 9.3 on one of the machines the two SATA disks that were connected to the nForce SATA RAID controller were not detected at all.

Thanks!

Suse 9.3 is already a bit old. I would suggest trying with a newer version or distro.

10.0 is out, yeah. That said, 9.3 *should* work, AFAIK. I'm using Gentoo AMD64 on a Tyan Thunder K8SE ATM, which is 2200 only, but I've had it up and running on a K8WE and a Gigabyte GA-2CEWH as well.

I'll chirp-in that I cannot speak for SuSE but CentOS 4 (x32) and 4.2(x64) w/ kernel 2.6.9-22 both recognized the 4 SATA disks, nv controllers on my SuperMicro H8DCE(w/ 2200 & 2050) w/o any problem.
I setup a RAID 5 3disk+1Spare during install of CentOS AMDx64- no brainer & works fine so far(it has not been installed very long -new system).

( ICYDK, CentOS=RHEL without the fudge )
