|Linux Migration to Promise RAID Card HOWTO|
You may get a kernel mismatch error message. This means that you don't have the correct version module for use with your kernel. If you cannot get the correct module version for use with your kernel, choose the closest one, and follow these steps;
This may not work in some instances, so remember to have your boot disk handy.
# cd /boot # cat initrd-2.4.2-2.img |gunzip > /tmp/myimage # mkdir /mnt/tmp # mount /tmp/myimage /mnt/tmp -t ext2 -o loop=/dev/loop3 # cd /mnt/tmp # vi linuxrc
Now modify 'insmod ft' to 'insmod -f ft'.
This will force the sytem to load the module. Save the file, and exit from vi (or emacs :))
# umount /mnt/tmp # gzip /tmp/myimage # cp myimage.gz /boot/initrd-2.4.2-2.img
You will obviously have to use the correct filename for your initrd file. I am using 2.4.2-2 as example.
Now, reboot, and all should be well.
