SUSE 9.2 and ieee1394


Hi,
I a total linux n00b so i might say some stupid things...

I just install SUSE 9.2 on my computer and so far it worked well.
I have a problem with my iPod.

I try to connect it with firewire and I understand that after i connect it it should be found in the /proc/bus/ieee-1394 but under proc/bus/ i have only pci usb and input...

When I use the USB the ipod is connected and can be read (after i mount it)

when i use lspci i get

Using the IPod hat me confused a bit too,
but I have it working now.

You must load the modules:
ohci1394
ieee1394

the "sbp2" module should _not_ be loaded.

The 2 loaded modules make FireWire devices visible too linux.
Your output from /proc/pci shows that the firewire card is installed in your system, this does not nessecarily maen that linux knows how to access the hardware

If you connect your Ipod now, the ipod display shpuld show:
"You can disconnect your Ipod now"
(I'm not sure about the exact messages, because I have a german Ipod)

Now load the spb2 module,
"/sbin/modprobe sbp2"

The Ipod should show the "Don ot discconect" warning.

Now your Ipod should be ready to be mounted like:
"mount -t vfat /dev/sda2 /mnt/IPOD"

After using gtkpod you must umount the IPOD, and then do
"/sbin/rmmod sbp2"

The message "You can disconnect your Ipod now" should apear again.

Note that the module load order is important.

Thanx for your help first
I've tried what you told me but it looks like it work.

The ipod dont even talk to the computer - it only charge itself.
I did it in the order you tell me (and first modprobe -r all of the relevant modules)

But when I try to mount

Code:
linux:/home/linktree # mount -t vfat /dev/sda2 /mnt/ipod
mount: special device /dev/sda2 does not exist
(/mnt/ipod is the name of my mount point)

Do you have any idea how to make it work?!

Thanx
