original message, and this topic is of concern for me.
As per the comment at the page
"The FreeBSD driver will soon be available
The version 3.0 of the EATA-DMA driver is currently under development."
I've e-mailed the author of this webpage a couple of times now without
response yet regarding the "soon" to be available driver. In our case, I
will not fall-back to Linux, as I don't trust it as a production NFS
server. I DO trust FreeBSD, however, and would very much like to see high
quality, high-performance DPT Caching/RAID SCSI controllers supported.
Anyone else care to comment?
