Not this?

There have been significant changes in the firewire stack for rhel-5.2  Have 
you tried using the 5.2 beta kernel?
Comment 2 Sean Bruno 2008-05-12 11:22:53 EDT
Well, no.

If you can point me at a URL to grab the kernel RPM for 5.2, I'd love to test it.
Comment 3 Sean Bruno 2008-05-27 20:25:18 EDT
Seriously, where can I get the update RPM?
Comment 4 Don Zickus 2008-05-28 10:33:56 EDT
One place to grab kernel rpms is from my people page

The 92.el5 kernel is the one we shipped for 5.2
Comment 5 Sean Bruno 2008-05-28 23:35:10 EDT
This error is still present in 2.6.18-93.el5 from the packages specified in
Comment #4.

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.
