Re: Module ohci1394 not found

For what it's worth, I was able to build and load the firewire modules

using the attached Makefile.  I have not actually tested connecting any
firewire devices but my experience with other recent kernels was that
loading ohci1394 spewed out a bunch of stack dumps.

The ieee1394 branch from subversion was merged into one of the recent mainline kernels (I think it was between 2.6.6-rc2 and 2.6.6-rc3). I have been using vanilla 2.6.6-rc3 with firewire enabled and I have had no problems whatsoever. My maxtor external hard drive works as well as my internal one.

So I guess that for people that really require firewire capability, compiling their own kernels might be necessary (as it is for people who want Nvidia binary drivers or NTFS to work - I happen to need the three of them ;)).
