1 Introduction

This document contains the hardware compatibility notes for FreeBSD 6.3-RELEASE on the PowerPC hardware platform (also referred to as FreeBSD/powerpc 6.3-RELEASE). 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 PowerPC hardware platform. Versions of the hardware compatibility notes for other architectures will differ in some details.

2 Supported Processors and Motherboards

The information for this paragraph has yet to be compiled.

3 Supported Devices

$FreeBSD: src/release/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/hardware/common/dev.sgml,v 2007/09/13 16:25:43 brueffer Exp $

This section describes the devices currently known to be supported by with FreeBSD on the PowerPC 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. Information on specific models of supported devices, controllers, etc. can be found in the manual pages.

Note: The device lists in this document are being generated automatically from FreeBSD manual pages. This means that some devices, which are supported by multiple drivers, may appear multiple times.

The Ultra 320 SCSI controller chips supported by the mpt(4) driver can be found onboard on many systems including:

  • Dell PowerEdge 1750 thru 2850

  • IBM eServer xSeries 335

These systems also contain Integrated Raid Mirroring and Integrated Raid Mirroring Enhanced which this driver also supports. The SAS controller chips are also present on many new AMD/Opteron based systems, like the Sun 4100. Note that this controller can drive both SAS and SATA drives or a mix of them at the same time. The Integrated Raid Mirroring available for these controllers is poorly supported at best. The Fibre Channel controller chipset are supported by a broad variety of speeds and systems. The Apple Fibre Channel HBA is in fact the FC949ES card. This driver also supports target mode for Fibre Channel cards. This support may be enabled by setting the desired role of the core via the LSI Logic firmware utility that establishes what roles the card can take on - no separate compilation is required.
