Question LaCie Firewire HD and RedHat8


I'm running RH8 on a laptop that had a "bringing up loopback interface" problem - I disabled kudzu, but the only information I've managed to pick up about kudzu is that it may be the 1394 support I'm looking for.

I have no idea how to work around this problem. I'm very new to linux, and from my standpoint, it seems that if I enable kudzu I can't boot my computer and if I can't enable kudzu I have 80 gigs of wasted storage sitting on my desk.

Any ideas?

All kudzu does is most of your work for you, lets do this the hard way...

if we're talking pcmcia to firewire its going to be one way, if its a direct firewire connection to the machine its a different method:

Let's assume normal firewire, 8.0 I think was smart enough to enable hotplugging, so take a look at:

/sbin/lsmod

for a list of modules, something of which should be a few that mention 1394.

Now assuming it loaded the right goop and the drive got recognized, let's see if it saw the drive properly:

dmesg | grep sd

And post back what you get.

Cheers,

Finegan

nothin....

lsmod didn't return any mention of 1394 modules.

it is a direct firewire connection on my laptop, not pcmcia. I'm not particularly sure of where to go from here, but thank you for your help.

any other ideas? is there a manual way of loading a 1394 module?

modprobe ieee1394
modprobe raw1394

Then check dmesg, the tail of it should be full of all sorts of 1394 fun and games.

Cheers,
