Re: twe driver?
I have a few 3ware controllers here, and the only way to rebuild a
failed array I have found so far, is booting with a debian rescue CD and
wait some hours (depending on array size). I think the 3ware folks are
not giving out essential technical details for OpenBSD to be able to
initiate the rebuild. Pls see some past messages on misc@ bout this.
