This document contains the hardware compatibility notes for FreeBSD 5.0-DP2 on the IA-64 hardware platform (also referred to as FreeBSD/ia64 5.0-DP2). It lists devices known to work on this platform, as well as some notes on boot-time kernel customization that may be useful when attempting to configure support for new devices.
Note: This document includes information specific to the IA-64 hardware platform. Versions of the hardware compatibility notes for other architectures will differ in some details.
Need to write this section.
This section describes the devices currently known to be supported by with FreeBSD on the IA-64 platform. Other configurations may also work, but simply have not been tested yet. Feedback, updates, and corrections to this list are encouraged.
Where possible, the drivers applicable to each device or class of devices is listed. If the driver in question has a manual page in the FreeBSD base distribution (most should), it is referenced here.

With all supported SCSI controllers, full support is provided for SCSI-I, SCSI-II, and SCSI-III peripherals, including hard disks, optical disks, tape drives (including DAT, 8mm Exabyte, Mammoth, and DLT), medium changers, processor target devices and CD-ROM drives. WORM devices that support CD-ROM commands are supported for read-only access by the CD-ROM drivers (such as cd(4)). WORM/CD-R/CD-RW writing support is provided by cdrecord(1), which is a part of the sysutils/cdrtools port in the Ports Collection.
The following CD-ROM type systems are supported at this time:
SCSI interface (also includes ProAudio Spectrum and SoundBlaster SCSI) ( cd(4))
ATAPI IDE interface ( acd(4))
Intel 82557-, 82258-, 82559-, 82550- or 82562-based Fast Ethernet NICs ( fxp(4) driver)
Intel EtherExpress Pro/100B PCI Fast Ethernet
Intel InBusiness 10/100 PCI Network Adapter
Intel PRO/100+ Management Adapter
Intel Pro/100 VE Desktop Adapter
Intel Pro/100 M Desktop Adapter
Intel Pro/100 S Desktop, Server and Dual-Port Server Adapters
On-board Ethernet NICs on many Intel motherboards.
Gigabit Ethernet NICs based on the Intel 82542 and 82543 controller chips ( gx(4) and em(4) drivers), plus NICs supported by the Intel 82540EM, 82544, 82545EM, and 82546EB controller chips ( em(4) driver only)
Intel PRO/1000 Gigabit Ethernet
Note: The em(4) driver is officially supported by Intel, but is only supported on the i386.
A range of USB peripherals are supported; devices known to work are listed in this section. Owing to the generic nature of most USB devices, with some exceptions any device of a given class will be supported, even if not explicitly listed here.
Note: USB Ethernet adapters can be found in the section listing Ethernet interfaces.
