I have took a look at the website, and the driver that they provide does not seems old, they claim that they support linux kernel up to 2.6.31.

But making it working it seems to be an harder things :)

By the way, on Debian before everything you will need to install the meta-package "build-essential" and the package "linux-kernel-headers". (apt-get install ...)

Then go to the subfolder (of the archive):
$ cd rr268x-linux-src-v1.xx/product/rr2680/linux/
$ make
And as root
# make install

And to load the driver (as root):
# modprobe rr2680

To launch the driver at boot time, on Debian append the following line to the file "/etc/modules":

I hope that I gave you some clues about solving the problem ^^

Kind Regards,

Objet : OT: linux question

A question to the Linux users here.... I'm trying to set up a 16 
drive Debian NAS to hold our production company's footage 
archive. Bought a HighPoint 2680 SATA card because they claimed 
Debian compatibility. But their stock drivers are so old, I can't 
even find the distribution they match. They also have the source 
code so you can compile a new kernel to support the card. I 
tried, but being a Linux newbie, failed in all attempts. Can't 
even get the 'tree' downloaded, whatever that is!

If, say, I could pay one of you to compile the kernel/driver for 
me, is there a way you can do that and then send it to me for an 
easy install here? No idea if kernel files can just be swapped 
out...  I would make space on my ftp server for you to upload the 
finished file(s) too.

Any chance this would work?
