PCI driver Solaris 2.6 : DIP question :-)

PCI driver Solaris 2.6 : DIP question :-)

Post by Zeev Wurma » Wed, 09 Jun 1999 04:00:00


We are trying to create a PCI driver for Solaris 2.6 and out breadboard
PCI card. Card and driver work on Linux and same hardware, so the
card ought to be OK...

Driver was written. /kernel/drv/<driver>.conf was set up.
  helios# cat pcidc66.conf
  name="pcidc66" parent="pseudo" vendor-id="137d" instance=0;

Driver is added and tries to do a basic operation:

  helios#add_drv -v -m"* 0666 bin bin" -i"pcidc66" -c pci pcidc66
  pcidc66:pciidentify called
  pcidc66:pciprobe called
  pcidc66:pciattach called dip = 615bc640 cmd = 0
  pcidc66:ddi_dev_nregs Failed
  pcidc66:ddi_dev_nregs returned 0
  Could not read symbolic link /dev/bd.off
  Driver (pcidc66) installed.

Looks like the passed DIP is bad/illegal. Any idea/suggestions?

I'd love to pay for few hours of "deep" consulting :-)

1. Veritas 2.6 on Solaris 2.6 question. .

Sun tech support says that they don't support Veritas versions past
2.5.5.b (Sun's Vol Mgr version 2.6).  Has anyone had any problems with
Veritas' Volume Manager version 2.6 running under Solaris v2.6 or v2.7?

I need support for fibre channel cards in order to access Storage Tek
disk drives, and Veritas suggests their 2.6 product.

Thanks for any feedback.
