ibmtr_cs - IBM Token Ring PCMCIA device driver
insmod ibmtr_cs.o [pc_debug=n] [mmiobase=n] [srambase=n] [ringspeed=n]
ibmtr_cs is the low-level Card Services driver for the IBM Token Ring
network adapter and a few very similar cards. When this driver is
attached to a card, it allocates the next available token ring inter-
face (tr0..tr#). This device name will be reported in the kernel log
file, and passed on to cardmgr(8).
Due to awkward design of the kernel ibmtr driver, the shared packet
memory for these cards must be mapped to a memory address below 1MB or
0x100000. The PCMCIA software will attempt to do this automatically,
but the automatic algorithm may choose values that conflict with other
system devices, so a manual override with the srambase parameter may be
required. The memory-mapped IO window generally will not be a problem.
Selects the PCMCIA debugging level. This parameter is only
available if the module is compiled with debugging enabled. A
non-zero value enables debugging.
Specifies a fixed address for the card's memory mapped IO win-
dow. The default is to select any available memory window.
Specifies a fixed address for the card's shared packet memory.
The default is to select any available window below 1MB.
Selects the network speed, in mb/sec. Valid values are 4 or 16,
and the default is 16.
This man page describes the standalone PCMCIA drivers provided by the
pcmcia-cs source, not the PCMCIA kernel driver support that is included
in the 2.4 (and later) linux kernel. While the kernel PCMCIA code has
the same functionality as the driver side of the standalone PCMCIA
package, there are some important differences. Therefore, some or all
of this documentation might not apply to the kernel drivers.
