*** Catalyst PCIBX32-X / PCIBX64-X Control Utility ***
About this software
This program can be used to control the Catalyst PCIBX32-X and
PCIBX64-X PCI Extender card through the parallel port interface.
This software is run on the host-system.
The host-system is the machine, which controlls the Extender.
The client-system is the machine with the controller in its PCI slot.
(The host- and client-system may be the same machine.)
See pcibx --help for detailed usage description.
And read the manual of your PCI Extender. ;)
Hotplug / Client-Kernel
To be able to hotplug devices into the controller, you must load
the "fakephp" PCI Hotplug kernel module on the client system.
This module fakes a PCI hotplug controller.
WARNING: Read the fakephp Manual. Be very careful when hotplugging
a device and keep doing it in the correct order:
1) Unregister the device from the kernel via sysfs.
2) Turn the UUT Powers on the Extender OFF.
3) Unplug the device from the physical PCI slot.
To plug a device in, reverse the order of the steps.
