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
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
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.
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/
