Old DELL CERC SATA monitoring on new Debian Squeeze (PowerEdge PE 830)

lspci says it’s an “Dell CERC SATA RAID 2 PCI SATA 6ch (DellCorsair)”, under “Adaptec AAC-RAID (rev 01)”. Dell OMSA 6.5.x installs perfectly and after reboot detects everything but the CERC controller; so add the repository as per the instructions at http://hwraid.le-vert.net/wiki/DebianPackages and then “apt-get install aacraid-status”. Then run “aacraid-status”. It should output something like

# aacraid-status
-- Controller informations --
