ISAPNP(4)                BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual                ISAPNP(4)

     isapnp -- introduction to ISA Plug-and-Play support

     isapnp0 at isa?

     An isapnp bus can be configured for each supported ISA bus.

     OpenBSD provides machine-independent bus support and drivers for ISA
     Plug-and-Play (isapnp) autoconfiguration of PnP-compatible devices on an
     ISA bus.

     OpenBSD includes machine-independent ISAPNP drivers, sorted by function
     and driver name:

   Disk controllers
        aha(4)        Adaptec 154x SCSI interface
        aic(4)        Adaptec AIC-6260 and AIC-6360 SCSI interface
        wdc(4)        WD100x compatible hard disk controller driver

   Serial and parallel interfaces
        com(4)        serial communications interface

   Network interfaces
        an(4)         Aironet 4500/4800 IEEE 802.11FH/b wireless interfaces
        ef(4)         3Com Fast EtherLink ISA (3c515) 10/100 Ethernet device
        ep(4)         3Com EtherLink III and Fast EtherLink III 10/100 Ether-
                      net device

        we(4)         Western Digital/SMC WD80x3, SMC Elite Ultra, and SMC
                      EtherEZ Ethernet device

        ess(4)        ESS Technology AudioDrive family audio device
        gus(4)        Gravis UltraSound/UltraSound MAX audio device

        rt(4)         AIMS Lab Radiotrack FM radio device

     intro(4), isa(4)

     The isapnp driver appeared in NetBSD 1.3.

     From time to time an isapnp device will be found which the kernel does
     not recognize.  The kernel matches isapnp devices to device drivers based
     on identifiers which each device provides.  For example, this device:

     joy0 at isapnp0 "Creative SB16 PnP, CTL7001, PNPB02F, Game" port 0x200/8

     This joystick calls itself by the two names ``CTL7001'' and ``PNPB02F''.
     The latter is a standard name (which the kernel automatically recog-
     nizes), but ``CTL7001'' is a vendor-specific name which needs to be added
     to a table.  Unfortunately, some devices advertise only their vendor-spe-
     cific name; for instance:

     "PnP Sound Chip, @P@1001, , " at isapnp0 port 0x200/8 not configured

     Testing will show that this device is actually a joystick.  To resolve
     the issue, the actual name ``@P@1001'' has to be entered into the data-
     base found in /sys/dev/isa/pnpdevs and a new kernel must be built.  Then
     the device will probe like this:

     joy0 at isapnp0 "PnP Sound Chip, @P@1001, , " port 0x200/8
