HardSID Linux Driver Home Page
This is the home-page-to-be for the Linux driver for HardSID and
Catweasel MK3 cards. The driver itself should be quite portable to other
operating systems as well and this should also be one of the main
objectives of this project.
Current released driver is version 0.16.
27.12.2003 - 0.16 release
No, we are not quite dead yet :) Another quick release to support PCI
cards (both HardSID and Catweasel MK3) and the new 2.6 kernel. Enjoy!
26.1.2002 - Quick fix, 0.15a release
Only hours after the 0.15 release was made I noticed the read ioctl
didn't work at all. Since Sidplay2 is going to use this feature I quickly
patched it and made the 0.15a release. No other changes from 0.15.
25.1.2002 - 0.15 release
After almost a year without releases, version 0.15 is now wrapped
up. This release is mostly just for compatibility with newer kernels, but
a few new things slipped in: ability to disable filters, configure all
parameters via normal module options instead of the source, flush, read
and delay ioctls etc. This release is also compatible with the current
2.5 kernels so far. Other good news is that the Sidplay2 patch is soon
obsolete as the support is being incorporated in Sidplay2 itself and
should be available in the next release coming very soon.
23.2.2001 - 0.14 release and CVS move
0.14 release is now available offering support for devfs and channel
muting. The later feature needs a bit more support from sidplay2 to be
really useful, but as such you can use it to play mono sidtunes in stereo
with two SIDs.
The other major change is that the CVS repository has now been moved to
Sourceforge so you can get your daily fix more easily :)
27.1.2001 - One brown paper bag for me please
0.13 release fixes a stupid stupid STUPID bug introduced in 0.11, which
caused an oops if you tried to open a nonexisting device. Slightly
updated Sidplay2 patch is also included.
27.1.2001 - 0.12 release
Hot on the heels of 0.11 comes a new release, which fixes a serious bug
with semaphores and 2.2 kernels. The semaphores weren't properly
initialized by the kernel macro, which does initialize them correctly on
2.4. Well, fortunately this was found now and the driver should work ok
also on 2.2 SMP again (hi, K-P :)
Another addition is a new version of the Sidplay2 patch, because the older
one didn't apply anymore. This one is a more "proper" one and brings back
working gui and samples (and even Galway noise). Enjoy!
25.1.2001 - The home page comes alive and new release
The project setup phase is soon coming to an end. Everything else is
now in place except CVS repository, which is waiting for an import from
my own tree. I'd like to retain the version history, which is why I'm
waiting for the direct CVS repository access, which should be coming with
the next Sourceforge update. Stay tuned.
Other things happened lately are multiple SID support (tested only with
two HardSID cards, but should work also with Quattro) and that the driver
works on Alpha out of the box. These are in the new 0.11 release
available on the project page.
