FPA(4)                     Kernel Interfaces Manual                     FPA(4)

NAME
     fpa, fea, fta -- DEC FDDI interface driver

SYNOPSIS
     fpa* at pci? dev ? function ?
     fea* at eisa? slot ?

   alpha and pmax
     fta* at tc? slot ? offset ?

DESCRIPTION
     Cards supported by the fpa, fea and fta device driver are:

           DEFPA   DEC PCI FDDI Controller

           DEFEA   DEC EISA FDDI Controller

           DEFTA   DEC TURBOchannel FDDI Controller

     respectively.  All variants of either controller are supported including
     the DAS and SAS configurations.

DIAGNOSTICS
     fea%d: error: desired IRQ of %d does not match device's actual IRQ
     (%d)  The device probe detected that the DEFEA board is configured for a
     different interrupt than the one specified in the kernel configuration
     file.

     fea%d: error: memory not enabled! ECU reconfiguration required  The
     device probe found that no device memory had been configured on the
     DEFEA.  The DEFEA can be configured with no device memory, this driver
     requires a minimum of 1K device memory be set up.  The ECU (EISA
     Configuration Utility) will need to be run to change the settings.

SEE ALSO
     arp(4), netintro(4), ifconfig(8)

AUTHORS
     The fpa, fea and fta device driver and manual page were written by Matt
     Thomas.

BUGS
     Normally, the device driver will not enable the reception of SMT frames.
     However if the IFF_LINK1 flag is set, the device driver will enable the
     reception of SMT frames and pass them up to the Berkeley Packet Filter
     for processing.
