firewire_sb2 attempting to send invalid management request
Last modified: 2014-08-31 19:28:53 EDT
Description of problem:
It appears that firewire_sb2 is attempting to send an ORB Manangement request
with a type of 5. This is still a reserved field AFAIK.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. connect SBP-2 firewire device to a RHEL5 machine.
2. execute a modprobe firewire_sb2
Login is successful, but a management ORB with a type of "5" is sent.
There have been significant changes in the firewire stack for rhel-5.2 Have
you tried using the 5.2 beta kernel?
If you can point me at a URL to grab the kernel RPM for 5.2, I'd love to test it.
Seriously, where can I get the update RPM?
One place to grab kernel rpms is from my people page
The 92.el5 kernel is the one we shipped for 5.2
This error is still present in 2.6.18-93.el5 from the packages specified in
I seem to have stumbled on the problem.
the firewire driver in both kernels tested is work properly.
I think there was something wrong with my target as I can't seem to get it to
happen on any other target I have in the house(tried three others).
I have sent this target into the trash heap as it also fails to work with
Windows and OSX.
