Could you share how you got MegaCli to work ?

I've been trying to get it to play nicely and here's what I did so far:

 - Installed suse_base-12.1nb3 (binary would not run without this)
 - Got the MegaCli zip, ran the following locally, uploading the
relevant files to the server:
  - MegaCli-8.04.07-1.noarch.rpm | cpio -ivd
  - MegaCli-8.04.07-1.noarch.rpm | cpio -ivd
 -  mount_procfs -o linux procfs /emul/linux/proc

 At this point MegaCli64 runs, but it can't find the controller:

# ./MegaCli64 -PDList -a0

User specified controller is not present.
Failed to get CpController object.

Exit Code: 0x01
