rr232x(4)		 BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual		     rr232x(4)

NAME
     rr232x -- HighPoint RocketRAID 232x device	driver

SYNOPSIS
     To	compile	this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your
     kernel configuration file:

	   device rr232x
	   device scbus
	   device da

     Alternatively, to load the	driver as a module at boot time, place the
     following line in loader.conf(5):

	   rr232x_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION
     The rr232x	driver provides	support	for HighPoint's	RocketRAID 232x	series
     of	RAID controllers.  These devices support SATA disk drives and provide
     RAID 0, 1,	and 5 functionality.  Hardware acceleration for	RAID 5 is also
     provided.	Additionally, if multiple controllers are present, arrays may
     be	built out of drives that are attached to different controllers.	 On-
     line management is	provided by utilities that are available for free
     download from http://www.highpoint-tech.com/.

HARDWARE
     The rr232x	driver supports	the following hardware:

     +o	 HighPoint RocketRAID 2320
     +o	 HighPoint RocketRAID 2322

NOTES
     The rr232x	driver only works on the i386 and amd64	platforms.  Also,
     while the driver can be loaded as a module, it must be loaded prior to
     boot.  Loading it after boot will result in the hardware not being	de-
     tected.
