    another bit of information can be gotten via "modinfo mptbase.ko" (or any other module, of course) - it will list the "version" of the module, which is independent of the version of kernel it is compiled against. Comparing the two systems, you can speculate how close these two drivers are "apart".

    And you may of course try to look up the driver source (SP3 reports GPL source for this driver ) and check for the according change logs as well.

    Hi Jens,

    Okay, that's weird.. Both test and problem server report

    So.. no difference...? except on the working test server, typing mptbase.ko returns an error, while dropping the ".ko" makes it return info.
    Oh, now they both do that. *shrug*

    One good thing.. it says it's **supported**.
    But I still haven't heard back from the Novell tech once I told him it's working on other systems.
