Solaris 2.6 master

   If you have any! card in the machine with it's adf not on the DCA Solaris will crash or hang. 
You can copy the adf (Ed into A:\solaris\mca_adf) and make the entry in the Master file (Ed. A:\solaris\devicedb\master) and it works. Even for card not useable with Solaris.the FCSM crashed on a Lacuna when configuring devices from my 2.6FCS media. FCS is the sun term for initial release.


version 1.0 )master   1.156   97/05/28 SMI"
Device tree database
 - Records in this file can be in an arbitrary order.
 - Records are terminated by newlines, fields are separated by any number of spaces and/or tabs.
 - Quotes can be used in any field to allow white space.
 - Other than comments (lines such as this beginning with '#") and the "Version" string no other tokens are understood.

Database format:-

<dev ids> <name> <dev type> <bus> <realmode dvr> <dev desc> <properties>

  8fda    chanmux    vid     mca       none     "XGA-2 display adapter"

       dev ids         List of unique device identifiers, seperated by the "pipe" character '|' when more than one ID should match the same entry.
       name            The device name. When the device ID matches  an entry in the device database, the "name" property is set to this value, and the "compatible"  property is set to the device ID. If no device  database entry matched, then the node will just have  the device ID for the "name" property. This allows  us to specify the Solaris driver name for a device  when we know what it is. PCI devices are typically  listed in tc/driver_aliases so we just map the  name back to the device ID and let driver_aliases   take care of the driver name mapping.

     dev type        The device type.  Valid values are:

com  ...  Serial ports
mem  ...  Memory extender cards
mfc  ...  Multi-function card
msd  ...  Mass storage device (eg scsi or ide)
net  ...  Network devices
oth  ...  Miscellaneous (including sound cards)
ptr  ...  Mice, etc.
vid  ...  Video/graphics cards
prt  ...  Parallel ports

      bus             The bus type (eg all, isa, pnpisa, eisa, mca, pci)

      realmode dvr    The realmode driver for bootable devices, otherwise "none".

       dev desc        Freeform descriptive device text

      properties      Optional additional device properties of the form name=value eg ipl=3. Properties are added to the device tree node passed to the kernel. This field  is also used to make this database "extensible". Properties which begin with a dollar sign are are used to pass information to the Configuration Assistant, but are not added to the device tree. For example, the $forceload property tells the Configuration Assistant that it must always load the specified bef in order for that bef to set additional properties on the node.
