I'm trying to get my RAID controller working with FreeBSD. But it seems it's not being recognized by FreeBSD:

    module_register_init: MOD_LOAD (pci/rr2680, 0xc0a45b90, 0xc61f0430) error 22
    rr2680: RocketRAID 268x controller driver v1.0.08.1222 (Dec 22 2008 14:08:35)
    rr2680: no controller detected.

I'm a bit clueless on how to get it fixed. The server is a HP HDPC with a Pentium D.

HighPoint has not released documents or source code for a driver, but do provide an old binary distribution. It can be downloaded from their website. It's for FreeBSD 7.0, and others have reported it as broken for 7.2+.

It's probably not what you want to hear, but I'd recommend using a Adaptec or LSI based controller as they're both very well supported in FreeBSD (and every other OS).

That's not an option because it's incompatible with the current kernel :( – Lucas Kauffman Aug 24 '12 at 13:37

There are driver sources for FreeBSD available on HPT site: rr268x-freebsd-src-v1.0.08.1222.tgz It can be compiled as a part of kernel, or as a kernel module (instruction can be found in README file, as usual)

Note: This is still NOT SOURCE, it's part compiled blobs, part header files. The binary blob is still compiled for a certain version of FreeBSD and will not work under later versions without the compatibility layer. It will not work at all under previous versions. This is a disingenuous effort at best. (No offense to Rybario, unless you work for HighPoint) – Chris S Jun 18 '13 at 20:40
