Description Michel Alexandre Salim 2003-11-03 00:53:07 EST

Description of problem:
I use a Firewire external HDD that works fine under
2.4.22-1.2105.nptl; yesterday I installed -1.2115.nptl and upon
booting it kudzu reported that the Firewire drive no longer exists.

Note: I have to use the rescan-scsi-bus.sh script from linux1394 to
get the drive to work even under -1.2105.nptl

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attach sbp2 HDD to a computer running -1.2105.nptl
2. Configure
3. Reboot to -1.2115.nptl

Actual Results:  Hard drive deconfigured

Expected Results:  Hard drive still usable

Additional info:

$ /sbin/lsmod|grep sbp
sbp2                   21004   1
ieee1394              204676   0 [sbp2 ohci1394]
scsi_mod              108168   3 [sd_mod sbp2 usb-storage]

I've perused the Changelogs for the two kernels and since Rd Hat
compiles using gcc32 anyway, presumably this results from either the
removal of the orlov patch, or the ACPI changes being backed out?

Funnily, even Apple seems to be having probs with Firewire these days...

Another victim of the ongoing firewire problems..

Turns out the problem is ACPI (yet again). My hard drive works (after
manually rescanning scsi devices) if I boot with acpi=on
(necessitating removing 'rhgb' as it locks up otherwise). Quite
interesting, it seems like without the 'acpi=on' option ACPI is
half-enabled on my notebook (Vaio Z1MP, Pentium-M 1.3)
