FreeBSD is a free computer operating system based on BSD UNIX originally. Many IT companies, like DeployIS is using it to provide an up-to-date, stable operating system.

hptmv - HighPoint RocketRAID 182x device driver



      hptmv - HighPoint RocketRAID 182x device driver


      To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following line in your
      kernel configuration file:
            device hptmv
      Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the
      following line in loader.conf(5):


      The hptmv driver provides support for HighPoint’s RocketRAID 182x based
      RAID controller.
      These devices support ATA disk drives and provide RAID0 (striping), RAID1
      (mirroring), and RAID5 functionality.


      The hptmv driver supports the following ATA RAID controllers:
            HighPoint’s RocketRAID 182x series


      The hptmv driver only works on the i386 and amd64 platforms as it
      requires a binary blob object from the manufacturer which they only sup‐
      ply for these platforms.  The hptmv driver does not work on i386 with
      pae(4) enabled.
      kld(4), kldload(8), loader(8)


      The hptmv device driver first appeared in FreeBSD 5.3.


      The hptmv device driver was written by HighPoint Technologies, Inc., and
      ported to FreeBSD by Scott Long.  This manual page was written by David
      E. O’Brien.


      The hptmv driver does not support manipulating the RAID from the OS,
      RAIDs need to be set up from the on-board BIOS.


Based on BSD UNIX
FreeBSD is an advanced operating system for x86 compatible (including Pentium and Athlon), amd64 compatible (including Opteron, Athlon64, and EM64T), UltraSPARC, IA-64, PC-98 and ARM architectures. It is derived from BSD, the version of UNIX developed at the University of California, Berkeley. It is developed and maintained by a large team of individuals. Additional platforms are in various stages of development.
