Slightly Off Topic .......
Are there any good online resources that describe in detail how Fedora [or Linux in
general] probes the PCI bus for cards and bridges, then sets them up for use? From the
references I have found, it is not clear to me if the motherboard BIOS does the probing
(i.e. identifying what cards/functions are on what bus) then configuring the base address
registers; or, if some, or all, of this is done under Linux.
Any references will be greatly appreciated!!
