FreeBSD is a free computer operating system based on BSD UNIX originally. Many IT companies, like DeployIS is using it to provide an up-to-date, stable operating system.

ahb - Adaptec EISA SCSI host adapter driver



      ahb - Adaptec EISA SCSI host adapter driver


      To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your
      kernel configuration file:
            device scbus
            device ahb
      Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the
      following line in loader.conf(5):


      This driver provides access to the SCSI bus connected to an Adaptec
      AHA-174X host adapters in “enhanced” mode.  Tagged queueing and syn‐
      chronous SCSI transfers are supported.


      The ahb driver supports the following SCSI host adapters:
            Adaptec AHA-1740
            Adaptec AHA-1742
            Adaptec AHA-1740A
            Adaptec AHA-1742A


      The Adaptec 174X is very sensitive to SCSI bus termination and cable
      length.  It may also have difficulties operating with some modern devices
      that, due to their speed, expose timing problems in the controller.
      There are no known mechanisms for working around device incompatibilities
      of this nature.
      aha(4), ahc(4), aic(4), cd(4), da(4), sa(4), scsi(4)


      The ahb driver was written by Justin T. Gibbs.


Based on BSD UNIX
FreeBSD is an advanced operating system for x86 compatible (including Pentium and Athlon), amd64 compatible (including Opteron, Athlon64, and EM64T), UltraSPARC, IA-64, PC-98 and ARM architectures. It is derived from BSD, the version of UNIX developed at the University of California, Berkeley. It is developed and maintained by a large team of individuals. Additional platforms are in various stages of development.
