[CentOS-devel] Areca RAID drivers

I have a CentOS-4 server with an Areca RAID that I would like to update
to CentOS-5. Have been building my own CentOS-4 RPMS based on
bodgit-n-scarper SRPM, but that is a kludge of a spec file that needs to
be hand-edited and rebuilt for each kernel.
Google found various interesting things for CentOS/EL-5:
Karanbir provided driver disk images and indicated that kmod drivers
would be in CentOS-5 Extras, but apparently these never materialized.
The only src.rpm I could turn up was the last link above, and I did get
CentOS-5 x86_64 kmod-style drivers to build from that one. Found other
indications that these drivers MIGHT be in the standard 5.1 kernel.
Before I proceed with a roll-your-own approach again, I would like to
inquire about the possibility of CentOS support for Areca RAID. Will
Extras or Plus kernel support be forthcoming? Should I hold off for
More information about the CentOS-devel
