Howto configure the Linux kernel / drivers / eisa


EISA configuration


  • Option: EISA_VLB_PRIMING
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) Vesa Local Bus priming
    • depends on X86_PC && EISA
    • default n
      Activate this option if your system contains a Vesa Local Bus (VLB) card that identify itself as an EISA card (such as the Adaptec AHA-284x).
      When in doubt, say N.


  • Option: EISA_PCI_EISA
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) Generic PCI/EISA bridge
    • depends on !PARISC && PCI && EISA
    • default y
      Activate this option if your system contains a PCI to EISA bridge. If your system have both PCI and EISA slots, you certainly need this option.
      When in doubt, say Y.
Using EISA_VIRTUAL_ROOT on something other than an Alpha or
an X86_PC may lead to crashes...


  • Option: EISA_VIRTUAL_ROOT
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) EISA virtual root device
    • depends on EISA && (ALPHA || X86_PC)
    • default y
      Activate this option if your system only have EISA bus (no PCI slots). The Alpha Jensen is an example of such a system.
      When in doubt, say Y.


  • Option: EISA_NAMES
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) EISA device name database
    • depends on EISA
    • default y
      By default, the kernel contains a database of all known EISA device names to make the information in sysfs comprehensible to the user. This database increases size of the kernel image by about 40KB, but it gets freed after the system boots up, so it doesn't take up kernel memory. Anyway, if you are building an installation floppy or kernel for an embedded system where kernel image size really matters, you can disable this feature and you'll get device ID instead of names.
      When in doubt, say Y.
