Linux disk driver

What command shows you which driver versions are running in Linux? In
particular, I want to see the array driver. More particularly, I have the
proliant tools installed and don't see the array status so I thought a
driver from HP might be better than the OS driver.

Essentially, I have a 72 gig disk array and one went south. I have tons of
146ers so I want to pop it in and see the progress the way I can in Winders
or Netware.

Thanks for your idears!

lsmod

Good thing you asked for a Linux command and not a SLES command,
otherwise you would've been sent elsewhere. 🙂

Re: Linux disk driver

Ha. Not urgent, just curious. My linux guy said he never needed that but I
bet we have or would sometime.

Thanks!

uname -a

That'll give you the kernel version, for drivers that are included with
the kernel, that's the important number.

For those that aren't, it'll probably depend on the driver and how it was
installed.

Re: Linux disk driver

So, there's no real "modules" equivalency?

Not really, no, but if you want a more detailed answer on that, you'll
have to ask in the support areas. 😉
