I just wanted to shout out re. the HighPoint RocketRaid 1640 driver fun
from yesterday- two things:
1) I've started the ball rolling on FreeBSD-scsi list, and will
continue to try to get some words about the possibility/sanity of
getting these drivers into the release sources. We'll see what
2) I just dug into the FreeBSD LiveCD project, and I'M FREAKING OUT
IT'S SO COOL.
The project distributes scripts so one can make their own bootable CD-
containing whatever one wants it to have. For my own
'micro-datacenter' purposes, I'm diving in this morning to create/test
my own Live bootable CD for system installs and repair uses, of course
primarily to ensure the HighPoint drivers are on board, and can be
installed over and over with the OS... (as well as providing a fixit
disk that properly deals with the RAID boot volume).
Problem solved for me in a clean and immediate manner, and I'm happy.
With that, I'll switch off my -v flag on this list thread, I just
thought this LiveCD project is such a cool solution, worth blabbing
