I recently got my hands on a nice new NAS box that included a few QLogic quad port 4gb fibre channel cards and I decided to mess with the idea of upgrading my SAN from Ethernet to Fiber. The problem is the only real way to do this without too much pain is to use SCST. For those who are interested in setting that up, I followed this Tutorial and I had no issues getting it going on a 3.14.5 kernel… minus the init.d startup script not working, which I have a fix for. So, if you have issues with SCST not running at startup in Debian, this post is for you!

So, here is a copy of the official r8168 driver patched to compile and run on the linux 3.10 kernel!
