PostPosted: Wed Apr 02, 2003 5:22 am    Post subject: Weird (very weird) FireWire Problem Reply with quote

I have a FireExpress external USB/Firewire HD case with a 120GB Western Digital Caviar HD inside. For some strange reason I can't seem to get Linux to recognize the drive at all using Firewire. It works just fine with USB.

I'm using kernel version 2.4.20 vanilla sources, with firewire, ohci1391, sbp2, scsi, and sd_mod all compiled as modules. I've tried many combinations of modules/built in...

The drive works fine in Firewire mode under windows.
I'm using a Dell Inspiron 8100

Here is the procedure I go through...

[connect everything]
power on and boot Linux

insmod scsi_mod
insmod sd_mod
insmod ieee1394
insmod ohci1394
insmod sbp2
rescan-scsi-bus -l -c -w # Script from www.linux1394.org

And nothing extra shows up in my /dev directory! (I've tried different orderings of module loading)
At this point, my /procfiles look like so:

cat /proc/scsi/scsi
Attached devices: none

cat /proc/scsi/sbp2/0

If more info is needed please let me know...
Anyone know why my drive is not being detected??

*YES* I have tried waiting 5 seconds between module loadings.

Well, I turned on debug output and found out the following:

dmesg returns info when I plug IN the drive, and unplug the drive.
However, turning the drive on/off causes nothing extra to be displayed in dmesg output. In the 2.5.66 kernel, turning the drive on/off DOES produce output.... hmm......

I'm thinking that the problem lies with the fact that my drive enclosure (CompuCAble FireXpress 350DX) doubles as a firewire hub... I'm guessing that Linux detects the hub... but NOT the drive, and I'm not sure why.

Anyone have any light to shed on this??

I'm using ac-sources rather than vanilla, so my results may be different.
I had to disable DMA support to get sbp2 to work properly with my CD-RW.
Code:
IEEE 1394 (FireWire) support (EXPERIMENTAL)  --->
<M>   SBP-2 support (Harddisks etc.)
[ ]     Enable Phys DMA support for SBP2 (Debug)

Otherwise, I could burn 1 or 2 CDs, then sbp2.o would crap-out and refuse to unload or work properly.
Maybe DMA support is buggy at this time.

Thanks for that suggestion, I disabled Phys DMA support, recompiled, rebooted and nothing changed :(

I WAS able to use my friends FW drive!! his was detected fine so I know that I'm inserting the modules correctly.... Also, MY drive was detected without problem on his Mac under OSX.

hi,

i've the same problem on the same hardware (only the deveice brand is different: iomega)

i can't getting it working over my firewire connection (i don't have usb2, or does i?)

i've tried just with the lastest gentoo's kernel...

see:
https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=61313&highlight=firewire+inspiron

please let me know if somebody finds a solutions

thanks in advice

Skunk,


Provided you have a Dell Inspiron 8100, then no you do not have USB 2.0 support (ehci), just USB 1.1 (uhci). I still have not found a fix for this although the newest development kernel that just came out has updates to the IEEE1394 (Firewire) drivers. I will download and test these just to see if they work although I doubt they will. Either way I'll post back. If ANYONE else has a fix, or even just some thoughts, please post. Thanks.

sb has an idea if that's hw related?

i'm thinking to try installing windoze to see if get the drive working with iomega's drivers, but i'm worry to loose my linux partititions doing so...
and u know, the only possible backup device doesn't work... :(
