drivers/char/cyclades.c: disabled non-Free firmware-loading machinery 
drivers/char/cyclades.c: removed blobs


What is the purpose of the device?

Qual o propósito do dispositivo

É conhecida como multiserial ou concentradora de terminais e impressoras

Placa Multiserial Cyclades Cyclon 16 X - 16 Portas - ISA

  • Dezesseis linhas seriais assíncronas operando em até 115200bps
  • Interface com o sistema: Barramento ISA, Compatível com EISA
  • Endereço de E/S: Configurável entre 0100h e 0400h
  • Conexão em equipamentos externos: Através de conectores DB-25 Macho
  • Não ocupa espaço de memória, facilitando a instalação e não necessitando desativação da cache do sistema
  • Componentes criticos montados sobre soquetes, facilitando a manutenção

disponibilidade de programa diagnóstico para detectar problemas de instalaçào e manutenção

  • Diversos drivers disponíveis, incluindo principais versões do Unix, Linux e BSD's.
  • Até quatro Interfaces instaláveis no sistema, num total de 64 linhas.

Where are the non-free firmware images made available?

onde o firmware não-livre está disponível?

This section includes links to non-free firmware with the purpose of fostering the development of a fully free firmware for this device. Please, do not use these non-free firmwares if you are not developing a free replacement for it.

"The Free Software Foundation follows the rule that we cannot install any proprietary program on our computers except temporarily for the specific purpose of writing a free replacement for that very program. Aside from that, we feel there is no possible excuse for installing a proprietary program." [2]
