PERC5/i monitoring on OpenSUSE 11.1...

Hi there,

I've recently upgraded a server to OpenSUSE 11.1. I figured that OMSA
does not support RAID monitoring even though basic system monitoring
(temperature etc.) works fine.

Now I went the "monitor via MegaRAID Storage Manager" route - and
failed. It looks like it is currently impossible to get ANY monitoring
of a PERC5/i with OpenSUSE 11.1. I tried MegaCli - no adapters found.

# modinfo megaraid_sas

(Newest dkms module available from OMSA repos is v00.00.03.21 and it
doesn't build on OpenSUSE 11.0 either.)

Does anybody monitor a PERC5/i using the LSI tools and has some clue on
where to look next?
