Notes

  • This driver can be built using the Linux kernel build system. However, it is recommended to use the MDIS system package build environment instead (13MD05-90).
    • Please note that on A17 this driver needs to be compiled into the kernel statically.
  • Please refer to the VME 4 Linux installation instructions for more detailed information!
  • For all features on A13/A15, a recent VME PLD for A13/A15 is required.
