Firewire DVD/CDRW on Sony R505EL


Firewire DVD/CDRW on Sony R505EL

I have RedHat 9 loaded (via FTP) on my laptop, but I can not seem to get it to find my CD drive that is hooked in to a docking station and connected through a firewire interface. I have done searches on the internet but it seems all the patches are for RedHat 7.3.

When I try and load ohci1394 it gives me back an error.

Most everything seems to work fine otherwise. Built-in Net, Wireless in PC-slot, X windows, all good.

Still need to get power properties working, but would like to get CD working first.

Anyone have any suggestions or success loading what I am describing?

What error do you get when you issue the command ' modprobe ohci1394 '

Do a ' lsmod ' and see if it is already loaded.

This is info related to the drive as being the 2nd cd/cdr/cdrw/dvd/dvdrw in your system.

You will need to load the sbp2 module also. Then you should be able to mount using something like this ' mount /dev/cdrom2 /mnt/cdrom2 '. That is if you have a soft link pointing to /dev/scd2 to /dev/cdrom2 in the /dev directory. Haven't worked with firewire for awhile. If you are still having problems I will try to help you. As far as using it as a cdrw then x-cdroast will find ( will need to run the configuration setup again ) it for you to use it as a writer. Seems like I missed something.

Then check out this site to see what other modules you might need to load.

Seems like I need to fix this and it should work...

When I issue 'modprobe ohci1394' I get the following error:
======================================
/lib/modules/2.4.20-28.9/kernel/drivers/ieee1394/ohci1394.o: init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
You may find more information in syslog or the output from
dmesg /lib/modules/2.4.20-28.9/kernel/drivers/ieee1394/ohci1394.o:

What notebook is this?

What does ' lspci ' say?

Also ControlCenter/Information/PCI shows a little more detail.

Whats in your /etc/modules.conf file?

What drivers are under /libs/modules/current kernel version/drivers/ieee1394?

What kernel are you using?

May need to compile a newer kernel.
