ISAPNP(4)                  BSD Programmer's Manual                   ISAPNP(4)

NAME

     isapnp - introduction to ISA Plug-and-Play support

SYNOPSIS

     isapnp0 at isa?

DESCRIPTION

     An isapnp bus can be configured for each supported ISA bus.

     OpenBSD provides machine-independent bus support and drivers for ISA
     Plug-and-Play (isapnp) autoconfiguration of PnP-compatible devices on an
     ISA bus.

SUPPORTED DEVICES

     OpenBSD includes machine-independent ISAPNP drivers, sorted by function
     and driver name:

Disk controllers

HISTORY

     The isapnp driver appeared in NetBSD 1.3.

CAVEATS

     From time to time an isapnp device will be found which the kernel does
     not recognize. The kernel matches isapnp devices to device drivers based
     on identifiers which each device provides. For example, this device:

     joy0 at isapnp0 <Creative SB16 PnP, CTL7001, PNPB02F, Game> port 0x200/8

     This joystick calls itself by the two names "CTL7001" and "PNPB02F". The
     latter is a standard name (which the kernel automatically recognizes),
     but "CTL7001" is a vendor-specific name which needs to be added to a
     table. Unfortunately, some devices advertise only their vendor-specific
     name; for instance:

     isapnp0: <PnP Sound Chip, @P@1001, , > port 0x200/8 not configured

     Testing will show that this device is actually a joystick. To resolve the
     issue, the actual name "@P@1001" has to be entered into the database
     found in /sys/dev/isa/pnpdevs and a new kernel must be built. Then the
     device will probe like this:

     joy0 at isapnp0 <PnP Sound Chip, @P@1001, , > port 0x200/8
