Description of problem:
Cannot detect ieee1394 (firewire) devices. System does not install
drivers. The Hardware browser sees the firewire device but the system
does not install any drivers for it. This previously worked for fedora
Fedora Core 2 test 3 with all packages installed.
CPU: Intel P4 2.8Ghz.
Motherboard: Intel D865PERL
Memory: 2GB PC3200 DDR-400
Video: NVIDIA Geforce 4 128MB
SATA Disk 250GB
I've tried both the onboard firewire and a belkin card.
$> modprobe ieee1394
FATAL: Module ieee1394 not found.
$> modprobe ohci1394
FATAL: Module ohci1394 not found.
FATAL: Module sbp2 not found.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install firewire card
2. boot system
3. modprobe ohci1394
Actual Results: FATAL: Module ohci1394 not found.
Expected Results: Module should have installed
I have the same problem, but it looks as thou the kernel was built
without any ieee1394 support at all making me think there is a known
problem. I highly doubt this would just be 'left out' on accident.
Any status on this? No ieee1394 seems to be a relatively large
disability for any distro. (well, unless everybody is willing to
recompile their kernels to use fedora with their firewire drives,
fixed in the current errata kernel
