For those with CentOS 5.8, here's how I did it (Find your own mirror for the mpt-status tar.gz file):

How to make for x4100 on CentOS 5.4:

- Obtain mpt-status from

- Obtain the X4100 resource CD from Sun. You may have to pay for this. Hopefully you got one with your box. I have an ISO file called X4100_X4200_ResourceCD_4.

- Install the mpt driver from the RPMs on the CD: mptlinux-

- Activate the mptctl driver (your distro should have come with mptbase and mpt sas): "/etc/rc3.d/S99fusion.mptctl start". Set up an rc3.d link to start this driver on boot!

- You should see mptctl, mptsas, mptscsih (maybe), and mptbase in the output of lsmod at this point. If not, keep hunting for drivers.

- Also on the Sun CDROM is mptlinux- Crate the directory and extract this source into /tmp/mptlinux-

- Extract the mpt-status source into /tmp/mpt-status-1.2.0.

- Edit the Makefile with:

KERNEL_PATH := /usr/src/kernels/2.6.18-164.15.1.el5-x86_64/include
CFLAGS := -Iincl -Wall -W -O2 \

Running CentOS. Seems to require src to the lsi driver. Any ideas where to get it?

mpt-status.h:19:26: error: lsi/mpi_type.h: No such file or directory
mpt-status.h:20:21: error: lsi/mpi.h: No such file or directory

Also, Centos 5.4 has mptbase but not mptctl.

Great app - can it support SATA / SAS drives?
