A listing of Compaq Softpaqs for Linux


More needs to be added, they will be added at a later time.


RedHat 6.2 and equal Linux distributions (using the same kernel number or higher) do not currently need any driver disks.

RedHat 6.1 can benefit from and are sometimes required for installation. These SP's are:

SP10775.EXE
  1. The first issue does not allow detection of PCI devices on the secondary/tertiary PCI bus.

  2. The second issue may cause a lockup when a NC3131 dual port network adapter is installed.

SP10776.TAR
Same as SP10775, just distributed in the .TAR format.

SP13120.EXE
Updated version of the Symbios sym53c8xx driver for RedHat 6.1 for use of the 1510D chipset on Compaq Servers.
