I have a 9650SE-8LP on the current Centos 5.1 x86_64 Xen kernel

moment, but it is detected no problem.

The Centos kernel is 2.6.18-53.1.14.el5xen.

Dmesg output:

Interesting. The driver version stated by your output is "v2.26.02.008". The version reported by my driver downloaded from 3ware.com is "". (My drivers history states that 9650SE support was added in

Do you know if that driver is the one bundled with the standard kernel, or one that has been applied afterwards by centos?
