This article is from a FAQ concerning SCO operating systems. While some of the information may be applicable to any OS, or any Unix or Linux OS, it may be specific to SCO Xenix, Open There is lots of Linux, Mac OS X and general Unix info elsewhere on this site: Search this site is the best way to find anything.

Does SCO Unix Openserver support USB devices?

Openserver version 5.0.6 with the RS506A supplement does provide some support for USB devices. Read the cover letter for the details.

At USB card for SCO, Bela Lubkin explained:

To see which USB controllers you have, run:

  hw -r pci | awk 'BEGIN{RS=""}/ClassCode:.*0x0c03/'

The possibilities are:

                                                          Supported by...
  ClassCode   USB standard   HCI standard        Speed    rs506a   OSR507
  =========   ============   ================   =======   ======   ======
  0x0c0300      USB 1.x      UHCI "Universal"    12Mbps      X        X
  0x0c0310      USB 1.x      OHCI "Open"         12Mbps               X
  0x0c0320      USB 2.0      EHCI "Enhanced"    480Mbps               X
 

Which shows that if you need access to USB devices on OpenServer 5.0.6 you need a USB controller card with a UHCI chipset, period.

By upgrading. 5.0.7 adds more support. It doesn't match Linux support, but may someday :-)

Anyone even peripherally involved with computers agrees that object-oriented programming (OOP) is the wave of the future. Maybe one in 50 of them has actually tried to use OOP – which has a lot to do with its popularity (Steve Steinberg)
