"Linux/PA-RISC Kernel Configuration"


  • Option: PARISC
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...

_bool y

    • The PA-RISC microprocessor is designed by Hewlett-Packard and used in many of their workstations & servers (HP9000 700 and 800 series, and later HP3000 series). The PA-RISC Linux project home page is at <http://www.parisc-linux.org/>.

    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...

_bool y


  • Option: RWSEM_XCHGADD_ALGORITHM
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off)

unless you want to implement ACPI on PA-RISC ... ;-)

    • default y



Processor type and featuresEdit

"Processor type"

    • default PA7000


  • Option: PA7000
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) PA7000/PA7100
      This is the processor type of your CPU. This information is used for optimizing purposes. In order to compile a kernel that can run on all 32-bit PA CPUs (albeit not optimally fast), you can specify "PA7000" here.
      Specifying "PA8000" here will allow you to select a 64-bit kernel which is required on some machines.


  • Option: PA7100LC
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) PA7100LC
      Select this option for the PCX-L processor, as used in the 712, 715/64, 715/80, 715/100, 715/100XC, 725/100, 743, 748, D200, D210, D300, D310 and E-class


  • Option: PA7200
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) PA7200
      Select this option for the PCX-T' processor, as used in the C100, C110, J100, J110, J210XC, D250, D260, D350, D360, K100, K200, K210, K220, K400, K410 and K420


  • Option: PA7300LC
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) PA7300LC
      Select this option for the PCX-L2 processor, as used in the 744, A180, B132L, B160L, B180L, C132L, C160L, C180L, D220, D230, D320 and D330.


  • Option: PA8X00
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) PA8000 and up
      Select this option for PCX-U to PCX-W2 processors.


Define implied options from the CPU selection here


  • Option: PA20
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...

_bool y

    • depends on PA8X00


  • Option: PA11
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...

_bool y

    • depends on PA7000 || PA7100LC || PA7200 || PA7300LC


  • Option: PREFETCH
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...

_bool y

    • depends on PA8X00


  • Option: 64BIT
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) 64-bit kernel
    • depends on PA8X00
      Enable this if you want to support 64bit kernel on PA-RISC platform.
      At the moment, only people willing to use more than 2GB of RAM, or having a 64bit-only capable PA-RISC machine should say Y here.
      Since there is no 64bit userland on PA-RISC, there is no point to enable this option otherwise. The 64bit kernel is significantly bigger and slower than the 32bit one.


  • Option: SMP
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) Symmetric multi-processing support
      This enables support for systems with more than one CPU. If you have a system with only one CPU, like most personal computers, say N. If you have a system with more than one CPU, say Y.
      If you say N here, the kernel will run on single and multiprocessor machines, but will use only one CPU of a multiprocessor machine. If you say Y here, the kernel will run on many, but not all, singleprocessor machines. On a singleprocessor machine, the kernel will run faster if you say N here.
      See also the <file:Documentation/smp.txt>, <file:Documentation/nmi_watchdog.txt> and the SMP-HOWTO available at <http://www.tldp.org/docs.html#howto>.
      If you don't know what to do here, say N.


  • Option: HOTPLUG_CPU
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off)
    • default y if SMP
    • select HOTPLUG


  • Option: ARCH_DISCONTIGMEM_ENABLE
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) Discontiguous memory support (EXPERIMENTAL)
    • depends on 64BIT && EXPERIMENTAL
      Say Y to support efficient handling of discontiguous physical memory, for architectures which are either NUMA (Non-Uniform Memory Access) or have huge holes in the physical address space for other reasons. See <file:Documentation/vm/numa> for more.




  • Option: PREEMPT
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off)
bool Preemptible Kernel
    • default n


  • Option: COMPAT
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...

_bool y

    • depends on 64BIT


  • Option: HPUX
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) Support for HP-UX binaries
    • depends on !64BIT


  • Option: NR_CPUS
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...

"Maximum number of CPUs (2-32)" 2 32

    • depends on SMP
    • default "32"
