Drivers for the SBS VME bridge

This Section deals only with the drivers for SLC4 kernels (2.6.x). Many issues of the driver of the 2.4.x kernel might still be existent. The driver has not been tested. It is only given here for people who have SBS modules in the labs and would like to try to continue to use them. Please also refer to the old documentation and the described problems therein.

SBS has been bought by another company and since then the source code of the driver is only distributed with a non disclosure agreement. Therefore only binary RPMs can be distributed here. The binaries are available for kernel 2.6.9-55.0.6.EL.cernsmp here: btp-2.6.9-55.EL.cernsmp-3.1.C.i586.rpm
