B004-board device driver for Linux, Release 0.3

B004-board device driver for Linux, Release 0.3

Post by niem.. » Sat, 01 May 1993 03:21:57


I have uploaded version 0.3 of my device driver for B004-board complatible
link interfaces to nic.funet.fi. The file is named transputer-03.tar.z and
can be found in the directory Linux/kernel.

Normaly a single Transputer or a Tranputer network is connected to the inter-
face. To work with a Transputer under Linux you need server programs that
give the transputer (a microprocessor with on-chip RAM und fast communication
links) access to the PC's resources. I have included the three mostly used

iserver, afserver and cserver.

All servers are included as executable files, the afserver and cserver with
full sources. For the iserver are included some patches against the original
inmos release 1.42.

The device driver uses the major device number 24.

Bug reports, questions to:

Happy Linuxing!


1. Always IN2000 SCSI driver, release 0.3

Announcing a revised Always IN2000 SCSI adapter driver for Linux

  The original code was written and Copyright (C) 1993  Brad McLean.
  Freely adapted and modified by Shaun Savage and Larry Doolittle,
  with additional help from Jon Luckey, John Shifflett, and
  Roger Sunshine.

  This version should be appropriate for use with (at least)
  all pl14 and early pl15 kernels.  This is still an ALPHA driver.
  Trust it only as far as you can throw it.
  It is in the "it works for several of us" category.

This version includes a patch to ll_rw_blk.c that bypasses noted problems
with using a swap partition with this driver, and instructions for
possibly using it with tape drives.  Be extra cautious when using
multiple drives - at least one system hang has occurred on a three-drive

The files have been uploaded to sunsite.unc.edu, and
are in their "final resting places" :-) already.

Make sure to look at the README carefully if you want to boot from
in2000.zImage .  I don't know what hardware you have, and hardware/driver
conflicts are known to occur with "kitchen sink" kernels.

Good luck!   - LRD
