I’m trying to set Zeroshell as a gateway in my company… It works quite good, but… Zeroshell don’t see Perc 4e/di controller.
I guess Linux kernel requires megaraid_mbox module which is not present in Zeroshell 🙁
“PowerEdge 2800, PowerEdge 2850, PowerEdge 1850 – PERC4e/Di – dual channel, U320 SCSI, PCI Express, with battery-backed cache. Requires megaraid2 driver 2.00.3 or higher on 2.4.x kernels. On 2.6.x kernels (earlier than 9), there is no driver for these adapters. On 2.6.x kernels (later than 9) use the ‘megaraid_mbox’ and ‘megaraid_mm’ drivers.”
How to get that working?November 21, 2006 at 8:42 pm #44982
I have just checked my .config kernel configuration file and
I think the problem is that
CONFIG_MEGARAID_MM option is disabled.
The next release of ZeroShell will have the kernel 2.6.18 or
2.6.19 and I will enable CONFIG_MEGARAID_MM option. THank
you for the advice.

Thank you very much!
$1.000.000 question: when new release comes out? 🙂November 22, 2006 at 5:40 pm #44984
Could you send me 1.000.000$ ? 😆 😆 😆
Ok, tomorrow you will have a new release with CONFIG_MEGARAID_MM option enabled.
Otherwise, you must wait because the QoS module will take me at least one month.

That would be fantastic! 🙂
I have to choose a product for our new gateway fast…
Thank you!November 24, 2006 at 8:34 am #44986
Is new version already available…?November 24, 2006 at 6:00 pm #44987
In december a new version will be available.December 5, 2006 at 11:17 am #44988
Will you include HTTP proxy with ClamAV filter in that release?
And will it be closer to 5th December or 31st? 😉December 5, 2006 at 4:45 pm #44989
No, the next release will include only QoS with traffic shaping and maybe the control of the peer-to-peer connection. I hope to finish it for the last days of this month.

I just wanted to add my findings for getting ZeroShell to boot from HD on my Dell PowerEdge 1750 with the PERC 4/Di controller. I used the information from this thread:
and then I updated it for the megaraid/LSI controller instead by copying megaraid/megaraid_mm.ko into the sata/deps folder and megaraid/megaraid_mbox.ko into sata/chipsets. Just for reference, the megaraid.ko file in the drivers/scsi folder isn’t used. According to the linuxrc script each file in the deps folder is insmod probed first, followed by the chipsets folder. Since insmod doesn’t try to load dependent modules it will fail if both are put in the same folder (deps).
