sri - DR11-C IMP interface
NSRI sri_controllers # SRI DR11c ARPAnet IMP
sri%d: not alive. The initialization routine was entered even though the device did not autoconfigure. This indicates a system problem.
sri%d: can't initialize. Insufficient UNIBUS resources existed to initialize the device. This is likely to occur when the device is run
on a buffered data path on an 11/750 and other network interfaces are also configured to use buffered data paths, or when it is configured
to use buffered data paths on an 11/730 (which has none).
sri%d: imp doesn't respond, ibf=%b. The driver attempted to initialize the device, but the IMP failed to respond after 5 tries. Check the
sri%d: stray xmit interrupt, csr=%b. An interrupt occurred when no output had previously been started.
sri%d: output error, csr=%b. The device indicated a problem sending data on output.
sri%d: input error, ibf=%b. The device indicated a problem receiving data on input.
sri%d: bad length=%d. An input operation resulted in a data transfer of less than 10 or more than 1008 bytes of data into memory (accord-
ing to the word count register). This should never happen as the maximum size of a host-IMP message is 1018 bytes.

INTRO(4) Kernel Interfaces Manual INTRO(4)NAME
intro - introduction to special files and hardware support
This section describes the special files, related driver functions, and networking support available in the system. In this part of the
manual, the SYNOPSIS section of each configurable device gives a sample specification for use in constructing a system description for the
/sys/conf/configscript, the autoconfig(8), program and descibes the major and minor device numbers and their encoding. The DIAGNOSTICS
section lists messages which may appear on the console and/or in the system error log /usr/adm/messages due to errors in device operation.
This section contains both devices which may be configured into the system, ``4'' entries, and network related information, ``4N'', ``4P'',
and ``4F'' entries; The networking support is introduced in intro(4N).
PDP DEVICE SUPPORT
This section describes the hardware supported on the DEC PDP-11. Software support for these devices comes in two forms. A hardware device
may be supported with a character or block device driver, or it may be used within the networking subsystem and have a network interface
driver. Block and character devices are accessed through files in the file system of a special type; c.f. mknod(8). Network interfaces
are indirectly accessed through the interprocess communication facilities provided by the system; see socket(2).
A hardware device is identified to the system at configuration time and the appropriate device or network interface driver is then compiled
into the system. When the resultant system is booted, the autoconfiguration facilities in the system probe for the device on either the
UNIBUS (or Q-bus) or MASSBUS and, if found, enable the software support for it. If a device does not respond at autoconfiguration time it
is not accessible at any time afterwards. To enable a device which did not autoconfigure, the system will have to be rebooted.
The autoconfiguration system is described in autoconfig(8). A list of the supported devices is given below.
SEE ALSO intro(4), networking(4), config(8).
LIST OF DEVICES
The devices listed below are supported in this incarnation of the system. Pseudo-devices are not listed. Listed also are devices which
are in various stages of porting to 2.11BSD from 4.3BSD.
Devices are indicated by their functional interface. If second vendor products provide functionally identical interfaces they should be
usable with the supplied software. (Beware, however, that we promise the software works ONLY with the hardware indicated on the appropri-
ate manual page.) Occasionally, new devices of a similar type may be added simply by creating appropriate table entries in the driver.
The following are known to work:
acc ACC LH/DH IMP communications interface
