These chips are also supported by 55.Xr ata 4 56and 57.Xr mvs 4 . 58Some vendors are using same chips, but without providing RAID BIOS. 59.El 60.Sh DESCRIPTION 61The 62.Nm 63driver provides support for HighPoint's RocketRAID based RAID controllers. 64.Pp 65These devices support SATA/ATA disk drives 66and provide RAID0 (striping), RAID1 (mirroring), and RAID5 functionality. 67.Sh HARDWARE 68The 69.Nm 70driver supports the following RAID 71controllers: 72.Pp 73.Bl -bullet -compact 74.It 75RocketRAID 172x series 76.It 77RocketRAID 174x series 78.It 79RocketRAID 2210 80.It 81RocketRAID 222x series 82.It 83RocketRAID 2240 84.It 85RocketRAID 230x series 86.It 87RocketRAID 231x series 88.It 89RocketRAID 232x series 90.It 91RocketRAID 2340 92.It 93RocketRAID 2522 94.El 95.Sh NOTES 96The 97.Nm 98driver only works on the i386 and amd64 platforms as it requires a binary 99blob object from the manufacturer which they only supply for these platforms. 100The 101.Nm 102driver does 103.Em not 104work on i386 with 105.Xr pae 4 106enabled. 107.Pp 108This driver does not support the RR182x series controller. 109See the 110.Xr hptmv 4 111manual page for details on support. 112.Pp 113This driver supersedes the older rr232x driver. 114.Sh SEE ALSO 115.Xr ata 4 , 116.Xr cam 4 , 117.Xr hptmv 4 , 118.Xr mvs 4 , 119.Xr loader 8 120.Sh HISTORY 121The 122.Nm 123device driver first appeared in 124.Fx 6.3 . 125.Sh AUTHORS 126.An -nosplit 127The 128.Nm 129device driver was written by 130.An HighPoint Technologies, Inc. , 131and ported to 132.Fx 133by 134.An Scott Long . 135This manual page was written by 136.An David E. O'Brien . 137.Sh BUGS 138The 139.Nm 140driver does not support manipulating the RAID from the OS, RAIDs need 141to be set up from the on-board BIOS.
