http://www.openbsd.org/faq/faq12.html#aac - 12.7.7 - What happened to
the Adaptec RAID support (aac)?


Adaptec has refused to provide useful and accurate documentation about
their FSA-based (aac(4)
<http://www.openbsd.org/cgi-bin/man.cgi?query=aac&sektion=4> ) RAID
controllers. As these RAID controllers seem to be very buggy, this
documentation is critical for a useful driver. Since this driver was so
unreliable, it was removed from the GENERIC kernel.

 

 

 

I can't believe this... I'm going to have to go to a new hardware
platform because of this.

 

Does anyone have any contacts at Adaptec?
