このガイドでは、Gentoo Linux 上への RocketRAID カードのインストールを支援します。


HPT-RR オーバーレイを有効化する

HPT-RR オーバーレイには、RocketRAID カードを簡単にインストールして構成するために必要なパッケージが含まれています。

eselect repository を使う

app-eselect/eselect-repositorydev-vcs/git がインストールされていることを確認してください:

root #emerge --ask --noreplace app-eselect/eselect-repository dev-vcs/git


root #eselect repository add RocketRAID git https://github.com/dsiggi/RocketRAID.git
root #emerge --sync RocketRAID

layman を使う

オーバーレイを有効化するための 2 番目の方法は layman を使う方法です。/etc/layman/layman.cfg を編集して、オーバーレイ定義を追加してください:

ファイル /etc/layman/layman.cfgコンフィグのオーバーレイの部分
overlays  :

次に、オーバーレイを同期して、RocketRAID のオーバーレイ (RocketRAID という名前です) を追加してください:

root #layman -S
root #layman -a RocketRAID


root #git clone https://github.com/dsiggi/RocketRAID.git

Linux カーネルモジュールをビルドしてインストールする

ハードウェアカードに応じて、正しい USE フラグを有効化してください。

そして、正しいカーネルモジュールを自動的にビルドしてインストールするために、sys-block/rocketraid パッケージをインストールしてください。

root #emerge --ask rocketraid


Load the newly built kernel module (example for the rr232x module):

root #modprobe rr232x

Validate that the hardware has been properly detected by reading through the dmesg output close after loading the module:

root #dmesg
[    2.499913] rr232x: module license 'Proprietary' taints kernel.
[    2.500453] rr232x:RocketRAID 232x controller driver v1.10 (Dec 24 2014 11:50:36)
[    2.500684] rr232x:adapter at PCI 3:4:0, IRQ 16
[    3.073130] rr232x:start channel [0,0]
[    3.073149] rr232x:start channel [0,1]
[    3.073167] rr232x:start channel [0,3]
[    3.424978] rr232x:channel [0,0] started successfully
[    3.785922] rr232x:channel [0,1] started successfully
[    4.156860] rr232x:channel [0,3] started successfully
[    4.498815] scsi host6: rr232x

If the module correctly found the hardware, then make sure that this module is automatically loaded at boot. This can be accomplished by adding it to the /etc/modules-load.d/raid.conf file.


There are a couple of software packages that provide additional support for the RocketRAID cards.

The sys-block/hptraidconf package provides configuration and monitoring support for the RocketRAID card. It requires a daemon running on the system, provided through the sys-block/hptsvr package. The client itself does not need to be installed on the system that has the RAID card in it.

Deploy the two packages:

root #emerge --ask hptsvr
root #emerge --ask hptraidconf


To run the server, add the right hardware module to /etc/hptcfg:

root #echo "rr232x" > /etc/hptcfg

Now start the server:

root #/etc/init.d/hptsvr start

To start the server on every system boot, type in:

root #rc-update add hptsvr default


To administer the RAID card settings, connect to the server using the hptraidconf command.

The default username is RAID and the default password is hpt.

root #hptraidconf [-i server:port]
