Is there any command to identify whether a client machine has SUNPCi
installed or not?

Check for the device:

# ls -l /dev/sunpci*

If you have the Sun PCi software isntalled:

# $ /opt/SUNWspci2/bin/sunpci -l
Opening a SunPCi window...

   Name = Card1
     Device = /dev/sunpci2drv0
     Type = SunPCi II
     Description = SunPCi II card
     Peripherals =

Try prtdiag:

$ /usr/platform/sun4u/sbin/prtdiag -v

[ED: this is the sunpci card. How can you tell? Do a long listing, ls

$ ls -l /dev/sunpci2drv0

1. Newbie Q -- CD-ROM not found after installing new video card... it is found under windows.


    I installed a Rage Fury 128. Upon the first bot into linux It asked to
uninstall the old video drivers -- went fine.
Then it asked to install the drivers for the card, which it detected and
identified perfectly.  It asked for the location of the source files and
gave the options of CD or Filesystem. I don't know where they would be
located on the filesystem, so I said CD. It returned with "Unable to mount
CD-ROM". I hit cancel and got shot back to the initial File location list
with CD, Filesystem, and Cancel. after several tries, it was obvious that
jiggling the wires wouldn't fix this and now Linux is unusable because when
the GUI would normally come up I now have a blank screen with occasional
hard-drive activity. I put the old card back in, identification and
configuration was perfect, (it didn't ask for the CD), but now my CD-ROM is
still not being mounted. The BIOS and Win2K are both finding the CD without
a problem. In Win2K the CD is fine with no difficulties at all. Any

    In a separate, unrelated issue, Linux will not find my Soundcard. I have
a classic Soundblaster 16 ISA card for universal compatibility, but it
doesn't recognize it all. I assume this is because it is an ISA card and I
need to configure it manually. Unfortunately I am *very* new to Linux and do
not know how to do this. (Yes I've ordered "Running Linux, 2nd Ed.", but it
will not be here for a few days.)

    I would greatly appreciate any advice that could be offered. I still
have the old video card if it will be required.

Thank you,

2. vmlinuz (734431 bytes) too big for LILO

3. Int 13h Device Not Found, BIOS not installed

4. Short History-NT Install (in progress?)

5. Ultra 30, SUNPCI card (amd400mhz) Solaris 8 and SUNPCI 1.3

6. Finding process size in 'C' code

7. Right mouse key not working on SunPCi II

8. Take Warning!

9. SunPCI process (not Windoze) crashed.

10. Remote use of SunPCI card -- but not on Xterminal?

11. sunpci 3.2: new disk size is not applied

12. (not another) sunpci question

13. SunPCi II pro card / risky to install patch on Solaris 10?
