User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20051018 Fedora/1.7.12-2

Description of problem:
No detection occuring for external firewire devices. Specifically the proper kernel modules aren't properly loading. The entries in modprobe.conf are also missing.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attach Sony DRX 710UL external firewire drive to any ieee1394 port
2. no detection

Actual Results:  Firewire drive isn't detected

Expected Results:  hotplug should detect the drive

Additional info:

Work around:

1. Add the following to /etc/rc.local `modprobe ide-scsi` and `modprobe sg`
2. Then add "alias scsi_hostadapter2(3,4,5) sbp2" to modprobe.conf, reboot and voila Sony firewire external drive DRX 710UL DVDRW works!

there should be no need for entries in modprobe.conf   as the hardware setup
will change and your scsi_hostadapter  may be a usb device.  the config needs to
happen dynamically on insertion and at boot time.  without anything in
/etc/rc.local and modprobe.conf  does anything show in dmesg  on insertion of
the device?

Set in /etc/udev/udev.conf:
then attach the firewire drive. Please report /var/log/messages.
