I have a Dell 2950 with a Perc 5/i controller.
I downloaded the megactl suite and installed it on rhel3 x86_64 update 9 and can't get it to work.
The Perc 5/i driver was installed with the redhat media. the install looks like the following:

#/sbin/lspci |grep -i raid
02:0e.0 RAID bus controller: Dell PowerEdge Expandable RAID controller 5i

#cat /proc/devices |grep raid
253 megaraid_sas_ioctl

#ls -l /dev |grep mega

Please help. I would really like to use these utilities.
I should mention that the MegaCli64 utility does not seem to work on this system.
