Adaptec aic7880 for RH 6.2 (Kernel 2.2.14)

Hi Everyone

I'm trying to source the aic7880 driver fro Kernel 2.2.14 I only found for kernels 2.2.16 upwards. Can anyone please tell me where I can download a version for my kernel version? I've checked Justin's Linux Page but no luck.

TIA
Pierre

Pierre,

I just have to ask. Would it not be easier to upgrade the kernel? There were many bugs (and security issues) in 2.2.14 which are fixed (and perfected) in more recent kernels.

BTW, I think that your request for info can be answered here:

Hope that helps.
