    Hi there.

    I'm running debian etch 64bit on my server which is using an
    ICP (that's adaptec) raid controller (ICP vortex 9014RO). i didn't know that adaptec does not support debian (just suse and redhat).
    i want to run a command line tool to check the raid status.
    along with the raid controller came the arcconf-utility from adaptec
    as .rpm-file which is not suitable for debian. i tried to install it with
    alien but all i got was an error-message "current build architecture amd64 does not appear in package's list (i386)" although it was the 64bit-package.

    does anyone have experience with installing arcconf on debian or another
    alternative solution to my problem?
    (btw. cat /proc/scsi/scsi does not provide the status information i need.)

    thank you for any little help,

    Is arcconf available as an rpm only? No source code, deb, ...?

    the adaptec customer service told me the source code is not available and debian is not supported.

    What's the output of
    uname -a
    , and what's in /etc/apt/sources.list?
