After reinstalling Fedora Core 2, I updated it with the latest kernel
I was hoping it would autodetect my firewire card now that the fix was in. But upon reboot, nothing changed. I did several googles and then gave the following a try:
/sbin/modprobe ohci1394 /sbin/modprobe sbp2 /sbin/modprobe raw1394
This resulted in
Jul 5 14:20:41 machinename kernel: ohci1394: fw-host0: \ OHCI-1394 1.1 (PCI): IRQ= MMIO=[f1109000-f11097ff] \ Max Packet=
The firewire card is recognized now. Now I’m trying to attempt to mount my iPod. Every article I found on the net said it will be recognized as /dev/sda1 or /dev/sda2. My problem is that I already have a /dev/sda and /dev/sdb since I’ve got a SCSI system.
I’ll keep looking more this week on getting this to work. My ultimate goal is to get the an external Firewire/USB drive to work for backup purposes.
