    SubjectPCI-SCI Drivers v1.1-7 released

    The PCI-SCI v1.1-7 Drivers for Dolphin's Scalable Coherent
    Interface Adapters have been posted and are available for download
    at\sci\pci-sci-1.1-7 in tar.gz and RPM
    (RedHat Package Manager Formats). This version supports Linux kernels
    2.2.X up through 2.4.1. These drivers are released under the
    GPL and are freely redistributible.


    This release corrects modversion build problems related
    to Red Hat's 7.1 Fischer Release. This release also corrects
    build problems with the #ident keyword in the SCI source
    tree with CVS. Please note that the sci sources will
    always assume a stock kernel layout and will point to
    /usr/src/linux/include for modversioned includes and files.
    For whatever reason, RedHat 7.1 now points to a /usr/src/linux-2.4
    tree which breaks drivers built against stock kernel trees.

    Also, the GCC 2.96 compiler shipped with RedHat 7.1 is terribly
    broken, and does not support #ident lines in the source code,
    which also means that RedHat 7.1 will not work properly with
    CVS (Code Versioning System) projects that use the #ident
    keyword to identify and comment files. It generates
    an "unknown keyword" error message. This version of the
    sources disables some CVS enablement in order to build properly
    on a RedHat 7.1 system with gcc 2.96.

    Please also note that the RedHat 7.1 Fischer release with
    the Linux 2.4.0 kernel will report bogus .modinfo relocation
    warnings generated by the assembler while building some .c files
    against the kernel source tree. These messages are a due to
    severe bugs previously reported in the gcc 2.96 compiler and
    assembler on RedHat versions 7.0 and above (the list for gcc 2.96
    keeps growing).

    Please direct any comments or bug reports to
