is anyone out there developing such a driver?
To be a bit more specific:
this is what my standard Linux 1.2.13 kernel (Slackware / SuSE) says:
Dec 6 21:09:24 YoMama kernel: bios32_init : BIOS32 Service Directory structure at 0x000fb300
Dec 6 21:09:24 YoMama kernel: bios32_init : BIOS32 Service Directory entry at 0xfb7a0
Dec 6 21:09:24 YoMama kernel: pcibios_init : PCI BIOS revision 2.10 entry at 0xfb7d0
Dec 6 21:09:24 YoMama kernel: Probing PCI hardware.
Dec 6 21:09:24 YoMama kernel: Unknown PCI device. PCI Vendor id=101c. PCI Device id=3296.
[F. Potter replied that he will include the device info into the kernel
so here I go:
it's a Gibabyte PCI Pentium Board
(Award Modular BIOS v4.50PG
Intel 8243x PCI-ISA BIOS v.2.19
and the PCI hardware in question is a
WD7193 PCI SCSI Controller (8bit according to the manual) with an
WD 7193 PCI-SCSI HBA
Adapter Version 1.00
BIOS Version 1.04.64
Setup Version 1.01
(c) Western Digital 1995
the WD BIOS Setup Program displays
PCI BUS 0
PCI DEVICE 9
SCSI ID 7
and although the WD BIOS Setup program claims the bios version to be
1.04.64, the boot message from the WD BIOS says:
Western Digital SCSI BIOS, v1.05
Part Number 75-001043-004 164
on the chip is printed:
00-01 9514 D
under DOS, the BIOS extension of the WD Adapter is reported to be loaded
into Segment C800 and it's size is reported to be 17kB.
Hope this helps..... and someone will write a driver ....
