The PAO project was completed. 3.5.1-RELEASE version is the last release by PAO project. The major features of PAO was integrated already into 5-current and 4-stable. Please read FreeBSD Inc. about the latest information. Thanks.
It enables FreeBSD to drive many PCMCIA (PC Card) cards (Ethernet, Wireless LAN, FAX/Modem, ISDN, Digital Cellular, SCSI, Flash ATA, ATA HDD, ATAPI CD-ROM) and provides you PC Card "hotplug" on your laptop machines running FreeBSD. It also contains some improvements and bug fixes for APM BIOS driver.
"PAO" is formerly called "pccard-test". I renamed it because it's not only a package for PC Card now.
"PAO" is based on Andrew
McRae's work for PC Cards on FreeBSD, and currently developed
and managed by the members of
BSD-nomads Mailing List (Japan). If in doubt,
please contact the FreeBSD-mobile Mailing List (English)
and BSD-nomads Mailing List (Japanese)
