live CD that has lots of drivers added. need to DD fiber channel drives (qlogic)

Hi,

Im looking for a live cd that provides lots of driver support.

Mainly what I need to do is dd through fiber channel adapters. (ie. qlogic.)

Any advice or input would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Hello,
If you have tried fedora and its a no go I would next try CentOs and then Puppy. Puppy linux has some of the odd hardware support.

Hope this helps

QLogic drivers are removed from Live CD's, probably because almost nobody using the Live CD needs them and it saves some space. Install livecd-tools and spin-kickstarts then edit /usr/share/spin-kickstarts/fedora-live-base.ks and comment out the section

Code:
# qlogic firmwares
-ql2100-firmware
-ql2200-firmware
-ql23xx-firmware
-ql2400-firmware
and rebuild with

Code:
su
livecd-creator --config='/usr/share/spin-kickstarts/fedora-livecd-desktop.ks'
There you go your own spin with qlogic drivers included, you could also use revisor, but in my experience it doesn't work so well.
