Apparently, the PCI bus is setup during booth with the bios. We have a
problem with this. We have a system, dual booth Suse Linux and WinXP. It
is connected via a "Stargen" chip which is actually a serial PCI bridge.
This controls an external instrument where each card is a PCI instrument
connected via andother "Stargen" chip. If we shut down the instrument
system, and change a card, and turn it back on, we then have to rebooth
the computer to get it to re-instanciate the PCI bus and recognize the
Is it possible with OpenBios or LinuxBios to be able to perform this
function from the operating system without having to do a reboot?
Please note I am not a bios guru.
