Hi, has anyone got a Startech PEX10000sfp 10gbe card working with OMV v5 ?
[Debian based distro currently on the Linux amd64 v5.4.0 kernel - I think...]
I plugged a new card in last week and OMV just completely ignored it's existence


Was hoping it would be plug and play, any advise would be thankfully received.

Thank, Antony

My NAS setup:
OMV v5
Supermicro A2SDi-8C-HLN4F [Intel Atom Processor C3758]
32GB ECC ram
InWin MS08 8xHotswap case
Intel SSD D3-S4510 240GB (os drive)
4x10TB HDDs
unRAID/UnionFS

Ah, looking on the cd rom that came with it I see a linux driver, in source code forum, dating from 2014.
Compiling drivers for linux is not something I've ever attempted before...

[yes I come from a mostly windows back ground where 99% of the time it works after clicking install ;-) ]

Thanks, Antony
