hardware Classic   hardware Classic : NetBSD G-REX driver improved
   posted by strim on 11-Jul-2012 22:50:11 (2111 reads)
The G-REX bridge driver for NetBSD was updated and now supports all available PCI slots. Functionality of G-REX is now on a par with Mediator 1200 in the NetBSD. The driver was tested successfully with 3Dfx Voodoo 3 and NE2000 network cards. Bus master DMA is not supported yet.

If I remembered correct, that's Hyperion explanation...from long time ago...
Yes that's it:

"Thomas Frieden
December 28th, 2010 - 12:09

We do not have documentation for the GRex, and moreover, certain people made sure we don’t get the documentation.

Reverse engineering is of course a possibility, but the little amount of GRex owners out there does not justify the associated cost/effort."
