ieee 1394 driver disappeared after power outage


When I got home last night from work I found that the power had gone out at my house oddly enough the computer was still on but locked up. I powered it down and on reboot it gave some message about error on / partion and asked if I would like to repair it I said yes. It rebooted repaired and rebooted again and my system was back up. It had turned off supermount so I turned it back on. I then noticed my Ipod would not mount. I rebooted and went through verbose and saw a message that lib/modules/"kernel version"/kernel/drivers/ieee1394 was not found. I am running Mandriva 2005. I need to know if I can find the folder that is missing online and just install it or if I will have to do a reinstall Mandriva. I'm not at home now so I'm not sure of the kernel version but it is stock. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

You can find out the kernel version with the command "uname -r".

Is it these drivers that you are missing?
/lib/modules/2.6.16.21-0.13-default/kernel/drivers/ieee1394
/lib/modules/2.6.16.21-0.13-default/kernel/drivers/ieee1394/dv1394.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.16.21-0.13-default/kernel/drivers/ieee1394/eth1394.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.16.21-0.13-default/kernel/drivers/ieee1394/ieee1394.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.16.21-0.13-default/kernel/drivers/ieee1394/ohci1394.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.16.21-0.13-default/kernel/drivers/ieee1394/pcilynx.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.16.21-0.13-default/kernel/drivers/ieee1394/raw1394.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.16.21-0.13-default/kernel/drivers/ieee1394/sbp2.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.16.21-0.13-default/kernel/drivers/ieee1394/video1394.ko


On SuSE, these are supplied by the kernel-<version> package. You can check like this:
rpm -qf /lib/modules/2.6.16.21-0.13-default/kernel/drivers/ieee1394/sbp2.ko
You would use your own kernel module and the version number for your Mandriva version.

If there is only one file missing, you might want to use the "mc" command to explore and extract the single missing file.

You could check if other files are missing with the command:
rpm -qs package-name

There were numerous drivers missing. I think I got them all back. Thanks for the reply.
