Hi,

I have just tried to install Megamon from  HWR_Monitor_Linux_3.8.zip  
found on the LSI site on a Dell PowerEdge R905 running CentOS 5.3 but 
after runnig the install script MegaCtrl does nothing.  When I try and 
start the service I get

Character Device Node /dev/megadev0 does not exist.
Raid Monitor could not be started.

So my question is do I fix this by going

mknod /dev/megadev0 c 253 0 

253 being identified from 
*cat /proc/devices | grep -i mega *
253 megaraid_sas_ioctl

Or is there some additional / alternative software I should be installing ?

Thanks
