Publisher's description of VIA VT6420/1 Serial ATA RAID Controller Driver 0.8 for Fedora Core 6.0 Linux

Install precompiled VIA V-RAID driver binary on an existing FC6 system with IDE HDD

NOTE: If users are using VT8237R/VT8237A/VT8251/VT6421 SATA controller, the VIA V-RAID driver may conflict with the system's default sata_via/ahci driver. Users can disable the sata_via/ahci first as below steps:

a.  Run command “#rmmod sata-via” and “#rmmod ahci” to unload os default sata/ahci module.
b.  Modify file “/etc/modprobe.conf”: alias scsi_hostadapter sata_via -> alias scsi_hostadapter viamraid
c.  Modify file “/etc/hotplug/blacklist”: Add lines with the content: "sata_via” and “ahci”
d.  Revise the default sata_via/ahci driver to “.bak” files:
#cd /lib/modules/'uname -r'/kernel/drivers/scsi
#mv ahci.ko ahci.ko.bak
#mv sata_via.ko sata_via.ko.bak
#depmod 'uname -r'
e.  Create a new boot image file and boot with it: #mkinitrd /boot/initrd-V-RAID260.img 'uname -r'
