Hey, maybe emailing the linux1394-devel list would help a bit with this

I assume you mean 2.5.69 and not 2.5.59. Does it work in 2.5.54? If so,
did you diff 2.5.53 and 2.5.54 and see if you could pinpoint what caused
it to stop working?

Since this is the first I've heard of your report (just checked recent
linux1394-devel messages and I don't see your name), we'll have to start
from scratch on your problem. Since I have been using 2.5.x for a long
time with ohci1394 and sbp2, and I've heard no other reports of this
kind, I can honestly say that your report is not the norm. In fact,
current 2.4/2.5 is the most stable ieee1394 code there is.

Just to put it into perspective I currently have an i386 running 2.5.69
with ohci1394/sbp2 for burning DVD's, and my ultrasparc has a 200gig
LaCie drive attached to an S800 card that handles backups from all my
systems on a nightly basis. I haven't even seen the first notion of a
problem for quite some time (all the ones I did see are fixed).
