The realm of Token Ring drivers on Linux has expanded quite a bit in
recent months. It's not just ibmtr anymore! So as a result this
map will tell you given a card which driver you should try and the
recommended minimum kernel version (if any).
- 3C389 PCMCIA -- ibmtr_cs v 2.2.7
- 3C619, 3C619B or 3C619C Token Link -- ibmtr
- 3C319 Velocity ISA -- try ibmtr
- 3C359 Velocity XL - PCI -- alpha driver available from www.linuxtr.net
- 3C339 Velocity PCI -- tms380tr v 2.3.26
- PCI Token Ring Adaptor -- olympic v 2.2.11
- PCI Wake on Lan Token Ring Adaptor -- olympic v 2.2.11
- 16/4 Token Ring PCI Adaptor 2, Wake On Lan, and Wake on Lan Special -- olympic v 2.2.11
- High Speed 100/16/4 Token Ring -- olympic v 2.2.11
- Turbo 16/4 ISA adapter -- ibmtr
This adapter will, in fact, work fine with the Linux token ring
driver. However, you MUST run the card in Auto 16/4
compatability mode. The simplest way to set this is to use the
LANAID disks sent with the card and run the command:
You should then use LANAIDC or LANAID to configure the card accord
ing to documentation.
- Token Ring Auto 16/4 ISA adapter -- ibmtr
- Token Ring Auto 16/4 adapter /A -- ibmtr
- Token Ring 16/4 adapter /A -- ibmtr
- Token Ring adapter /A -- ibmtr
- Token Ring adapter II (4 Megabit only) -- ibmtr
- 16/4 ISA Token Ring card (16bit) -- ibmtr
- 16/4 ISA Token Ring card (8bit) -- ibmtr
- PCI LANStreamer (under development see www.linuxtr.net)
- PCMCIA - Turbo 16/4 -- ibmtr_cs v 2.2.7
- PCMCIA - 16/4 -- ibmtr_cs v 2.2.7
- RapidFire 3139, 3140, 3141, and 3540
- OC 3136
- OC 3137
- OC 3118
- OC 3129
For these Olicom cards, see their website www.olicom.com for drivers. You
will need a 2.2.x series kernel.
- 51-02 Smart 16/4 PCI
- 20-03 16/4 Cardbus Adapter Mk2
- 51-04 Smart 16/4 PCI Ringnode Mk3
- 51-09 Smart 16/4 Fiber PCI Ringnode
- 51-07 Smart 100/16/4 PCI-HS Ringnode
- 51-05 Smart 100/16/4 PCI Ringnode
- 20-01 Smart 16/4 PCMCIA
- 60-07 Presto PCI 2000
- 60-06 Presto PCI Plus
- 60-05 Presto PCI
For these Madge cards you'll want to visit their site www.madge.com
for drivers. You will need either a 2.0.36 or 2.2.5 as a minimum.
Other Madge cards are reportedly based on the tms380tr chipset and
thus as of the 2.3.26 kernel you can try the tms380tr driver.
- TR4/16(+) SK-4190 ISA
- TR4/16(+) SK-4590 PCI
- TR4/16(+) SK-4591 PCI
In the 2.2.x series of kernels try sktr. In the 2.3.x seriest
try the tms380tr driver.
- Tokencard Elite (8115T)
- Tokencard Elite/A MCA (8115T/A)
Driver is included as part of the 2.3.38+ kernel.
- TokenExpress PRO
- TokenExpress 16/4
Support for these cards is currently under development.
