Linux HBA Drivers
Originally written by
- First, we have the old SCSI HBA drivers for pure SCSI Controllers,
such as aic79xx.o for various Adaptec HBAs, advansys.o for ConnectCom
Solutions, Inc drivers, etc.
- The we have drivers for SCSI-over-something - SCSI over ide (ide-scsi.o),
SCSI over USB (usb-storage.o for USB storage devices).
- Fiber-Channel HBAs - In the last 2-3 years, the 2 major vendors of
Fiber-Channel HBAs - QLogic and Emulex - open-sourced their drivers,
and they are now a part of the standard kernel (qlaXXXX.o for QLogic,
lpfcXXXX.o for Emulex)...
- ...althought you still often need to take the latest drivers from the
vendor's site, to overcome various problems.
