Installing on Ubuntu Linux

Note: For driver installation on Ubuntu Linux, you may need to create the root account and password. Enter these commands: sudo bash; sudo passwd root. You must have root privileges to install the driver image.

To install the driver on Ubuntu Linux:

  1. Update the Ubuntu package index:
    sudo apt-get update
  2. Load the Ubuntu unpacking tools:
    sudo apt-get install build-essential
  3. Insert and mount the driver disk (assuming the USB drive is /dev/sda1):
    mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb
  4. Install the DEB driver package (where xxxxx is the build number):

    Ubuntu 10.x:

    sudo dpkg -i /mnt/usb/aacraid-1.2.1-xxxxx-Ubuntu10.04.3+10.04.4-all.deb

    Ubuntu 11.x and Ubuntu 12.x:

    sudo dpkg -i /mnt/usb/aacraid-1.2.1-xxxxx-Ubuntu11.10+12.04+12.04.1+12.04.2-all.deb
  5. Reboot your computer to ensure the driver loaded correctly.
  6. Continue with Managing Your Storage Space.
