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
description: Driver for Microsemi Smart Family Controller version 0.9.14-100
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)
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
# CONFIG_SCSI_SMARTPQI is not set
Thats an oversight :/
Enabled for next mga6 and Cauldron kernel
ill close this even though i was not the victim of the bug.
as far as im aware this bug is now resolved
