PCI interface and 3C905 ethernet card documentation

modified: 24 Jan 2005


As a project for a university course Alvin Beach developed a Minix driver for the 3Com 3c905 and 3c920 ethernet cards. These are PCI bus cards, and at the time he began this project standard Minix did not have PCI bus support, so he worked with Minix-vmd rather than standard Minix. However, Minix 2.0.4 added support for the PCI bus. Alvin has since worked on porting this driver to standard Minix and has reported success, although this project is not ready for release (as of January 2005).

Here are links to some pieces of Alvin's project:
