I went out today and bought an Eicon Diva PCI 2.01 for the gateway I am
setting up. This revision of the card does not yet work under FreeBSD.
Being in a rush, and wanting to get things out of the way, I went down to
my local computer shop and bought a MRI Mr. Modem PCI ISDN adapter.
The chipset appears to be a HFC-S-Pci (A), which is the Cologne chip that was
recommended to me on Thursday. This also failed to work under FreeBSD.
(Here comes the on-topic bit)
So I installed Debain from an oldish potato cd I had lying around, and
upgraded the kernel to 2.4.18. Regardless of which card I put in (and I
have tried this on two motherboards with PNP OS in the bios in either
state), I get this from dmesg:
HiSax: Linux Driver for passive ISDN cards
HiSax: Version 3.5 (kernel)
HiSax: Layer1 Revision 126.96.36.199
<snip some more layer stuff>
HiSax: Approval certification valid
HiSax: Approved with ELSA Microlink PCI cards
HiSax: Approved with Eicon Technology Diva 2.01 PCI cards
HiSax: Approved with Sedlbauer Speedfax + cards
HiSax: Approved with HFC-S PCI A based cards
HiSax: Total 1 card defined
HiSax: Card 1 Protocol EDSS1 Id=HiSax (0)
HiSax: HFC-SX driver Rev. 188.8.131.52
HFC-SX: invalid chip id 0xf
HiSax: Card HFC 2BDS0 SX not installed !
isdnloop-ISDN-driver Rev 184.108.40.206
I'm baffled. It shouldn't be trying to use that driver with either card, but
attempting to compile the kernel without it results in a failed compile.
So if anyone has any ideas, or has a working .config for either of the
above cards, I'd be really pleased if they could point me in the right
