I am a bit surprised that you install a server without knowing to look for
hardware drivers issues beforehand. And that you seem to be a bit
helpless. Is this your first server you install? Then I suggest for some
reading in Debian documentation. It might be good if you look for some
experienced Debian GNU/Linux admin around your place to help you.
Paste output of lspci -n into:
(I just search for "debian driver check page" in case I forgot the URL
When you are lucky you see minimum version of kernel for PCI id of the
card. And with some luck its below <= 3.2.
If system is already installed and you are only using the raid controller
for data disks, then install 3.2 backport kernel for Squeeze. There wonīt
be any newer official backport kernel for Squeeze, as 3.2 will also be the
kernel for Wheezy.
If system is not yet installed I see two relatively easy choices:
1) Get an installer with newer kernel for Squeeze:
Note: these are no official images. My experience is that they work well.
But I do not use them regularily.
2) Use Wheezy. Its partly frozen now, but you still better bring some
experience with you in case of problems during upgrades and so. So I only
recommend this when you gathered some Debian experience beforehand,
especially with package management. And when the workload isnīt too
important or critical.
Both at your own risk of course.
It might also be possible to use Wheezy installer to install Squeeze, but
I am not sure of that and have not tested it.
