     kernel configuration file:

DESCRIPTION

     (mirroring), and RAID5 functionality.

     ·   HighPoint’s RocketRAID 182x series

NOTES

     The hptmv driver only works on the i386 and amd64 platforms as it
     requires a binary blob object from the manufacturer which they only
     supply for these platforms.  The hptmv driver does not work on i386 with
     pae(4) enabled.

BUGS
