The realm of Token Ring drivers on Linux has expanded quite a bit in last couple of years. It's not just ibmtr anymore! So as a result this map will tell you given a card which driver you should try and the recommended minimum kernel version (if any). Most drivers accept arguments in the form of module paramters (with the exception of the special case of PCMCIA, which is fully described below).
Kernel modules are specified in the file /etc/conf.modules or /etc/modules.conf depending upon which version of modutils you've got. You can directly modify this file or use the tools builtin to your specific distribution. These distribution specific tools are beyond the scope of this document, but you can always directly modify the modules.conf file by hand to get things up and running and then figure out how your distribution handles these files. For example, Debian has several files in the /etc/modutils directory and from these builds the modules.conf file. Kernel modules aliases are utilized to associate a particular name with a kernel module.
For token ring, this is used to assign drivers for each of the token ring interfaces so that the system scripts know which driver to insert when you bring an interface up. The format of the alias lines are: alias module_name interface Usually, the only line you'll need for the token ring networking would be something like: alias olympic tr0 This binds the olympic driver to the tr0 interface so when you type ifconfig tr0 up if the tr0 interface is not already loaded, the system will insert the olympic driver, which in turn will find the network card and create the tr0 network device.

Kernel modules parameters are specified in the following format: options module_name parameter_1=XXX [ parameter2=YYY.] Where the modules_name is the name of the driver, i.e.
Olympic, ibmtr, 3c359 and the `parameters are those available for each driver. See either the following sections for driver specifics or check out the drivers source code. For example, if you wanted to set the Olympic driver to 16 mbps operation and with a default buffer size of 8192 bytes, you would use the following line: options olympic ringspeed=16 pkt_buf_sz=8192. IBM PCI Pit/Pit-Phy/Olympic chipset based token ring cards Options: The driver accepts four options: ringspeed, pkt_buf_sz, message_level and network_monitor. These options can be specified differently for each card found, i.e if you have two olympic adapters in your machine and want to assign a ring speed of 16mbps to the first adapter, but a ring speed of 4mbps to the second adapter, your options line would read: options olympic ringspeed=16,4 However, it should be noted that the driver assigns value to each adapter in the order they are discovered¸ which is usually the order there are present on the pci bus.
A little trial and error may be required to be certain which adapter is receiving which configuration option. • ringspeed: Has one of three settings 0 (default), 4 or 16. 0 will make the card autosense the ringspeed and join at the appropriate speed, this will be the default option for most people.
4 or 16 allow you to explicitly force the card to operate at a certain speed. The card will fail if you try to insert it at the wrong speed. (Although some hubs will allow this so be *very* careful). The main purpose for explicitly setting the ring speed is for when the card is first on the ring.
In autosense mode, if the card cannot detect any active monitors on the ring it will not open, so you must re-init the card at the appropriate speed. Unfortunately at present the only way of doing this is rmmod and insmod which is a bit tough if it is compiled in the kernel. The driver does support 100 mbps full duplex operation. This is automatically detected by the adapter when connected to an appropriate switch. • pkt_buf_sz: This is this initial receive buffer allocation size. This will default to 4096 if no value is entered.
