Jon Miller-5
Client is getting the following on his Debian 3.0 server:

Also the following from dmesg
ft3xx: Unsupported IOCTL CMD<4>(0x540f)
ft3xx: Unsupported IOCTL CMD<4>(0x540f)
ft3xx: Unsupported IOCTL CMD<4>(0x540f)
ft3xx: Unsupported IOCTL CMD<4>(0x540f)

The server has a Promise Fasttrack 150 TX2 Sata controller card and I have it set up for mirroring.  I've noticed that as soon as the controller card is loaded the 2nd lot of errors start to appear.
Ichanged memory, and same errors show up.  
This server has Debian 3.0 installed.  

What I also need to know is how can I change an exisitng Promise card for a newer one.  If I try to install the card the booting hangs before it gets to Debian.
I'm going to try 2 methods a) using the boot cd and going in as a single entity and installing the driver while the new card is installed and b) try to compile the new drivers without the card.

The new card is a fasttrack tx2 2300 which is the replacement for the fasttrack 150 Sata Tx2plus.

Any ideas on how I replace the Controller card and or fix the other problem.


Jon
