Hi,

When I ran the startupui.sh command I get the following error:

Warning: Cannot convert string "-b&h-lucida-medium-r-normal-sans-*-140-*-*-p-*-iso8859-1" to type FontStruct
Message = No Storage Controller Found!

Here are the two processes that are running:

Here is the lsmod output:

Here is the dmesg output showing the model of the SAS controller.
