OpenSuse 12.3 and 12.2 - find driver version for LSI MEGAraid


Does anyone know how to find which driver verison of the LSI MEGAraid driver that comes with OpenSuse 12.2 and 12.3 ?

Having a hard time trying to find it in the docs or at the computer.

Thanks in advance


Hallo Claus.

Do you got any solution for this problem? We are as well unable to obtain a working driver and are hesitating to compile one by ourselfs


Could you post the actual device id, i.e. the output of “/sbin/lspci -nnk”?

According to an LSI MEGAraid seems to be supported by the megaraid_mbos driver which is part of the standard kernel package (on 12.3 and 13.1 at least).

So you shouldn’t have to install any additional driver.

@claus232: To find out the version of a kernel module, use modinfo.
Here on my 13.1:

/sbin/modinfo megaraid_mbox
filename:       /lib/modules/3.11.10-17-desktop/kernel/drivers/scsi/megaraid/megaraid_mbox.ko
