Is it possible to add a driver to the SLES9 repository
without altering the driverupdate?
The problem: To be able to install an IBM x306m I need
to use an updatedisk for the RAID controller (module=
adp94xx). To automate this I added the driver to the
driverupdate. On an IBM x306m this works fine. However
using the same driverupdate on an IBM x346 it also
loads the adp94xx module, while it doesn't need it
since the RAID controller is different. Besides the
adp94xx it also detects and loads the correct module
(ips). When rebooting the x346 it hangs after the
message "proc unmounted. Please stand by while
rebooting the system...". When I press CTRL-ALT-DEL it
shows the message "shutdown: warning:
cannot open /var/run/shutdown.pid". Whenever I unload
the adp94xx module on the x346 reboot goes fine.
However the module is loaded again after reboot so i'd
have to add scripts that will remove the module after
each reboot or so. I can think of some ways to fix
this with scripting, but the cleanest way is to add
drivers to the repository and let the installer of
SLES detect and configure the hardware.
