>> Hello Vinod,
>> There has been a recent flurry of discussion about the twa(4)
>> driver on FreeBSD 6.0, using the AMCC/3ware 9500S-4LP.
>> In a nutshell, the cards won't boot using a RAID volume
>> install, outside of booting from Safe Mode.
>> The Error symptom is that during boot, the card keeps
>> resetting itself infinitely.
>> I have today compiled CURRENT to test, it didn't work.
>> I have also compiled/installed the drivers downloaded from
>> the 3Ware site, that didn't work either.
>> Q: Is the driver broken in the FreeBSD Source?
> Not that I know of.
>> Q: Is anyone actively maintaining the driver, now that the
>> 9550SX cards have come out?
> AMCC does actively maintain the driver. I have moved out of being
> responsible for the driver though. Please contact 3ware Support and
> they should help you.
>> Thank you for your time.
