Due to a library incompatibility with the new CentOS update please follow the below steps to install the Rocket 750 Driver:

 

Download and Unzip:

wget http://images.45drives.com/Drivers/R750_v1.2.7_linux.tar.gz

tar -xvzf R750_v1.2.7_linux.tar.gz

./r750-linux-src-v1.2.7-16_08_23.bin

 

Make the following file:

vim fixcompissue.sh

 

Enter the following in the text file:

echo “This script tried to declare driver license from Proprietary to GPL to avoid compliation issue as RHEL 7.6 changed the API referred to GPL only.”

if [ -d /usr/share/hptdrv ]; then

find /usr/share/hptdrv -name osm_linux.c | while read line; do

sed -i.bak /MODULE_LICENSE/s/Proprietary/GPL/ $line

echo “$line [Changed]”

done

fi

echo “License replacement has been completed. Please restart system to check the driver loading status.”

 

Make the file executable:

chmod +x fixcompissue.sh

Run the following:

./fixcompissue.sh

reboot

 

Upon reboot all the drives should be in the system with the driver installed without issues.
