Description peter winterflood 2018-07-16 17:22:08 CEST
currently mageia 6 does not appear to include the following module in the kernel, this may be the age of the kernel or may be an action on the kernel maintainer, im not sure at present.

the following info taken from a rhel 7.4 kernel

 lsmod |grep smart
smartpqi               58431  2
scsi_transport_sas     41224  2 ses,smartpqi

 modinfo smartpqi

ive included a link to rpm find in the source as the version you pick may be dependant on the kernel version you are testing against.

i did not include a reason for this, so adding in comments.

this is so that mageia can install on hardware including an HP p408i-a raid controller, ie HP dl380 gen10 

yes quite an obscure bit of high end hardware, but based on a user request.

background on this https://forums.mageia.org/en/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=12418

or anything carrying an 

5c:00.0 Serial Attached SCSI controller: Adaptec Device 028f (rev 01)

based controller.

FWIW, the in-tree module would just need to be enabled from what I can tell:

[doktor5000@Mageia6]─[18:18:14]─[~] zgrep -i pqi /proc/config.gz 

CC: (none) => doktor5000
