CONFIG_CARDBUS: 32-bit CardBus support

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_CARDBUS has multiple definitions:

32-bit CardBus support found in drivers/pcmcia/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_CARDBUS:

Help text

CardBus is a bus mastering architecture for PC-cards, which allows for 32 bit PC-cards (the original PCMCIA standard specifies only a 16 bit wide bus). Many newer PC-cards are actually CardBus cards.

To use 32 bit PC-cards, you also need a CardBus compatible host bridge. Virtually all modern PCMCIA bridges do this, and most of them are "yenta-compatible", so say Y or M there, too.

If unsure, say Y.

CardBus is a bus mastering architecture for PC-cards, which allows for 32 bit PC-cards (the original PCMCIA standard specifies only a 16 bit wide bus). Many newer PC-cards are actually CardBus cards.

This option enables support for CardBus PC Cards, as well as support for CardBus host bridges. Virtually all modern PCMCIA bridges are CardBus compatible. A "bridge" is the hardware inside your computer that PCMCIA cards are plugged into.

To use your PC-cards, you will need supporting software from David Hinds' pcmcia-cs package (see the file Documentation/Changes for location).

If unsure, say Y.
