Description Gareth Budge 2003-12-16 23:26:00 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0; APC)

Description of problem:
The on-board 1394 firewire controller appears to have a problem 
operating on the stock RH9 OS.

On bootup the console outputs the following message, to the order of 
50-100 times:

ohci1394_0: Unrecoverable error, shutting down card.

Upon inspection of /var/log/messages the message proceding the 
sucession of the above message is:

ng down card

The same error is apparent upon reboot and shut down (at the console).

There was an extension cable from the on-board pins to the rear of 
the case which was removed with no error resolution. The error is 
resolved by disabling firewire entirely.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Board Revision: 1.0, Kernel: 2.4.20-8, Red Hat Linux: 3.2.2-5

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Reboot the system, or
2. Shut down the system, or
3. Simply boot the system.

Actual Results:  As mentioned in the descrioption.

Expected Results:  The OS detects, correctly loads the drivers and 
does not produce the said error.

Additional info:

It is not tested whether a new kernel corrects this problem, or if in 
fact the firewire still functions regardless of the error. The system 
did report that the drivers for the 1394 device were loaded, however 
the error messages said above appear after that point.

An additional driver perhaps could be the simple resolution.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
