I don't think this is true.  The Canadian Light Source and the
Australian Synchrotron are using Linux with VME via the SIS PCI to VME
bridge.  I believe there is a version of devLib that supports this.
They are using a recent version of the IPAC module for VME Industry Pack
modules, and I believe IPAC uses devLib.

You simply have to write them :-)

Most of the routines refer to VME bus. They probably don't make much
sense on an
ordinary Linux PC. But there might actually be some Linux based VME
systems.
However it seems that nobody has used such systems so far. It's like
everything
in EPICS: The first one who needs a feature has to implement it.

Good luck and tell us when you're done :-)
