PCIe External Firewire 800 IDE drive not detected on OEL5.3


Oracle Enterprise Linux 5.3 (based on RHEL 5.3) does not see my external Firewire drive. I have a Firewire PCI 32-bit card connected with Firewire 800 to an external Firewire IDE drive. Before giving you all the required trace files, here is what I have tried and conclusions I came to.
The motherboard is XFX GeForce 8200 with 4 PCI slots (2 PCI-32, 1 PCIe, I PCI wide for video). I installed 3 cards:

1 PCI HighPoint RocketRAID 1720 that controls 2 SATA internal disks in RAID1;
1 PCI cheap generic 10/100 ethernet card
1 PCIe Firewire 800 to control an external Firewire IDE drive.

Interestingly when I loaded Knoppix without including the RocketRAID 1720 PCI controller card, my external Firewire drive was seen. All trace files are shorten but let me know if you need the full log.

Well, I validated all my hardware. I installed the load CD from Fedora 10 (RHEL 2.6.27.5-117) and I was able to see my external firewire drive assigned /dev/sdc. /dev/sda and /dev/sdb should have actually been as only 1 drive, but I think I got into bug 180708 which does not auto-assemble RAID SATA drives and show them separately. But I can see all the drives including the external Firewire LaCie 2big Triple.


So big question: How do I get the firewire drive recognized on the older RHEL 2.6.18-128? I now know all the hardware is OK. It's just a question of linux ieee1394 that is not working on RHEL5.3. Do you guys know of a patch?


Here is the proof of recognized hardware. The SATA drives (showing seperately bug 180708) along with the Firewire external drive

Well, certainly I am astounded at the number of response and the quality of the answers I got. So, for the ones still looking so hard to get results, here is some answer I got from a colleague.
OEL 5.3 blacklists firewire module from the RHEL kernel. All I had to do was take out firewire-ohci from the blacklist.

cd /etc/modprobe.d
vi blacklist-firewire
put a comment # in front of "blacklist firewire-ohci"
reboot

And the LaCie 2big Triple drive was detected. On to concurrent logins now.
