Operating Systems HP-UX HPUX 10.20 SCSI Hardware Drivers Post 303042686 by KeithM on Friday 3rd of January 2020 11:14:08 AM
HPUX 10.20 SCSI Hardware Drivers

I own a 1999 vintage HP Logic Analyzer that runs HPUX 10.20. It is a 9000/775/rock system similar to a Visualize C132L/160L system.

I'm attempting, mostly for the fun of it, to upgrade the existing slow 5MB/s-only SCSI system, with a new-er PCI card. Of course drivers is my major concern. I'd like to assemble as many hardware drivers for as many different SCSI cards as possible for that OS. I'm going to attempt to buy from ebay an older card, and then get it running.

I have so many questions:
  • Where are drivers stored within the OS?
  • How do you install a new driver?
  • So far, the best I can determine is that you create a new kernel using SAM and change the "OUT" to "IN" for the particular line, once that driver is installed.
  • Are there any official CDROM sources that would have a ton of drivers?
  • The drivers I obtain are going to become my shopping list --- whatever I have support for, I'll have to find a matching card...

My current system only has C720 installed. This is an NCR/LSI/Symbios 53C720 driver. I *may* be able to find a compatible card, but I think it might be tough.

CARDMGR(8)						      System Manager's Manual							CARDMGR(8)

cardmgr - PCMCIA device manager SYNOPSIS
cardmgr [-V] [-q] [-d] [-o] [-f] [-v] [-c configpath] [-m modpath] [-p pidfile] [-s stabfile] DESCRIPTION
Cardmgr monitors PCMCIA sockets for card insertion and removal events. When a card is inserted, cardmgr looks up the card in a database of known cards. If the card can be identified, appropriate device drivers will be loaded and bound to the card. When a card is ejected, that card's drivers will be shut down and unloaded if possible. Based on the contents of the PCMCIA card configuration database, cardmgr may also execute arbitrary commands when appropriate cards are either inserted or removed. All insertion and removal events, device driver loads and unloads, and startup and shutdown commands are reported in the system log file. Warnings and errors will also be logged. Current card and device information for each socket is recorded in /var/lib/pcmcia/stab. Normally, when a card is identified, cardmgr will send a beep to the console. A beep is also generated when a card is successfully config- ured. A beep of lower pitch is generated if either of these steps fails. Ejecting a card produces a single beep. When cardmgr receives a SIGHUP signal, it will reload its configuration file. When cardmgr receives a SIGTERM signal, it will shut down all sockets that are not busy and then exit, but drivers for busy sockets will stay loaded. If the PCMCIA_OPTS environment variable is set, its contents will be parsed after the main card configuration file is read. At startup, cardmgr requires that /tmp reside on a filesystem that permits special device files (i.e., a real linux filesystem, that is not mounted "nodev"). OPTIONS
-V Show version information and exit. -q Quiet mode: don't beep when cards are inserted. -v Verbose mode: generates more informational messages during normal operation. Configuration scripts are executed with VERBOSE=y. -d Follow module dependencies when loading driver modules, by defaulting to use modprobe instead of insmod. Normally, cardmgr will try using modprobe only after an unsuccessful attempt with insmod. -f Foreground: do not fork and run as a daemon until after configuring any cards that are already present. -o One pass: configure cards that are present, then exit. This flag also forces cardmgr to run in the foreground. -c configpath Look for the card configuration database and card configuration scripts in the specified directory, instead of /etc/pcmcia. -m modpath Look for loadable kernel modules in the specified directory, instead of /lib/modules/`uname -r`. -p pidfile Write the PID of the cardmgr process to the specified file, instead of /var/run/ -s stabfile Write current socket information to the specified file, instead of /var/lib/pcmcia/stab. FILES
/etc/pcmcia/config Card configuration database /etc/pcmcia/config.opts Local resource settings for PCMCIA devices /var/run/ PID of active cardmgr process /var/lib/pcmcia/stab Current card and device information for each socket. AUTHOR
