Having just got some new machines and wanting to install debian stable
I was met with the problem of stables kernel not supporting my raid card
(MegaRAID Tri-Mode SAS3516) however I spotted that testings kernel
supported it and the kernel had been backported.
I looked around and found
unfortunately they aren't updated anymore :(
So I decided to try and build my own debian install CD that booted and
installed the kernel from backports, documentation on all of this is
certainly lacking but I have succeeded!
I've uploaded my monstrosity to
The source for making it is at
If anyone has any feedback on it I'd love to hear it!
