introduction to EISA bus support
Machine-dependent; depends on the bus topology and EISA bus interface of your
system. Typical EISA buses are either connected directly to the main system
bus, or via an PCI to EISA bridge. See the
intro(4) documentation for your system for
OpenBSD includes a machine-independent EISA bus
subsystem and several machine-independent EISA device drivers.
OpenBSD provides support for the following
devices. Note that not all architectures support all devices.
- Compaq Smart Array 2/3/4 SCSI RAID controller
- DPT EATA SCSI RAID controller
- Adaptec VL/EISA/PCI SCSI interface
- Ultrastor SCSI interface
- 3Com EtherLink III and Fast EtherLink III 10/100 Ethernet device
Note that most or all EISA devices also have PCI or ISA
equivalents. These are listed in pci(4),
isapnp(4), respectively. The manual pages
for each individual driver also lists the supported bus variants.
