Missing Bnx2x Firmware Files In Xen4CentOS CentOS6 Kernel 3.18.12-11


Hi folks

As mentioned in the subject, kernel-3.18.12-11 is missing firmware files required to run Broadcom/Qlogic network cards, driven by bnx2x driver. While in the source-rpm, there is a bnx2/bnx2x firmware tgz being applied during the rpm build, along with a patch adding these firmware files to firmware/Makefile, neither the tgz nor the patch contain the required firmware files. In 3.18, the driver bumped to version 1.710.51-0, requiring the following firmware files/versions to work:

firmware: bnx2x/bnx2x-e2- firmware: bnx2x/bnx2x-e1h- firmware: bnx2x/bnx2x-e1-

I helped myself by either copying the required firmware-files to the target-machines' /lib/firmware/bnx2x dir and ultimately by adding the files to the source-rpm…

7.1 Install With Areca Arc-1224


I must be doing something horribly wrong and I hope somebody can help.

The Areca arc-1224 is not supported by the Areca driver included driver in 7.1 so I have to supply that when starting the install. Documentation provided by Areca and in the Red Hat install guide say the same thing, put the driver on an accessible medium then append inst.dd on the boot command, choose the driver and now the drives show up. So far so good.

There's already a possible glitch, however. The USB memory stick is mounted as sda1, shifting the hard drives off by one letter.

So I…

OT Advantage Of Running DNS Server?


As others have said, it depends on your circumstances and what you want to achieve. In my case I run dnsmasq on my home network, configured to use my ISP's DNS server as its upstream. For me the advantages are that it allows me to address connected devices by name and to see at a glance what devices are connected.

Dual-booting <- Installing Cents Os Server 7.0


Chris Murphy wrote:

In that case, wouldn't it be more precise to say: CentOS-7 doesn't support dual boot if you are using LVM? It seems to me to work reasonably well with ext4. Does it work with LVM if you have a separate ext4 /boot partition?

An Mdadm Question


CentOS 7.

I have a server with four drives. 1 is /, and the other three are in RAID5. I need to pull a drive, so I can test whether the server can read > 2TB drives. I've been googling, but don't want to screw the server up....

I think I'd like to 1. stop the RAID 2. pull a drive 3. put in a large drive, and run parted, and mkfs 4. pull the large drive 5. replace the RAID drive 6. fire up the RAID.

So, can I do it in that order? Do I need to fail something?
