We have many RAID systems, both Intel & non-Intel that originally run Windows. We are
trying to give Linux (openSuSE) its share now. However, we have an issue where system
partitions are detected differently when openSuSe is running and when it's booting.
For instance, openSuSE was installed on /dev/sde, but GRUB calls it /dev/sdd &
doesn't know /dev/sde at all. GRUB doesn't know raid partitions I believe.
We loaded the correct vendor modules at the time of install, installed systems fine, but
GRUB cannot boot them unless we tell it new partitions. this's an issue incase
there's power-loss & servers are set to boot up automatically.
Our smolts system profile address is:
lspci -v & fdisk -l and lsmod reports are attached here.
Another issue is that soundcard was detected and configured but no audio. we would try to
compile a kernel but there are no drivers missing here.
Please help this email reach the right openSuSe people.
