Appendix D. AIX device drivers reference 207
MCA-attached hardware
Microchannel bus systems were included in the very first RS/6000 servers and
are not longer included in any pSeries systems. Nevertheless, support by AIX is
included up to AIX 5L Version 5.1. Table D-2 show the available device drivers.
Table D-2 Microchannel device drivers
Restriction: None of the device drivers or machines support the use of the
AIX 5L 64-bit kernel.
