Hello:

I have been trying to resolve my firewire and knoppix issue, and am running into a one way street. In fact, in the knoppix forum, there was someone with the exact same problem, and he was told that the reason why he was not receiving suggestions was the fact that very few folks use firewire. Somehow I refuse to believe this answer..........
Other forums refer to guides that are difficult to understand. In addition, the sites for linux are either awfully slow, or they can not be opened.

Just have to keep on trying.....

Totonho03

P.S>- Has anyone heard that some folks or institutions are selling a knoppix dvd? They are charging 20 bucks for it, but am not sure if they are good or not.....

Well, I was searching for a book on linux, checked three computer stores and found nothing that will help me resolve my issues. Best Buy did not have any books regarding linux. Compuserve had a couple of them, but they were Red Hat bibles, and I did not see anything on firewire, the other one is not worth mentioing, very few books.. Too bad.

..........I guess that the web is the best bet for this

Yes it is
However, there's a new book called "Moving To Linux: Kiss the Blue Screen of Death Goodbye by Marcel Gagné", that you might want to look into
http://www.linux.org/books/reviews/gagne_bsod.html

Edit:
About your firewire problem, try this on a command prompt, logged in as "root": modprobe ohci1394

Hi Kwag:

Thank you for the suggestions regarding thebook and modprobe ohci1394.

Actually earlier last night, I had performed this command, followed by lsmode, and it gave me a list of the modules that were installed. amongst them, I had the following:

Quote:
Module ------Size Used by---Not tainted.
usb-uhci ----------- --0 (unused)
usbcore-------------- 1 (usb-uhci)
ohci 1394-------------0 (unused)
ieee1394--------------0 (unused)
pcmcia_core----------0 (ds yenta_socket)
As you can see, the 1394, appears to be there, but not being used, and that is precisely what I am trying to learn, how to mount the Western Digital and the dvd writter......

In addition to this, I have also tried cdrecord -scanbus, and the only CD rom available was my Hitachi, on scibus0, 0) Hitachi.......
I have also tried mounting sd1 or sd2, which I read within the forum, were the names given to CD roms, but to no avail. That is why I went to search for a book on linux. I will more than likely need to get it thought the linux site that you sent me.

Thanks and best regards

Totonho03

P.S.- Do not remember if I mentioned it or not, but I am now able to print, except that I have to launch the print manager everytime I boot linux. There must be a way to retain this in the files for it to be loaded automatically.........

Hi Otto,

About Firewire, I'll let you know later tonight, because I just deleted my OS X system in my iBook, and installed Yellowdog Linux
So I'll try to connect my external Maxtor Firewire drive, and I'll let you know the commands, and how to automate it.

If it's a graphical (X11) program, you can edit (or create) the file: .xinitrc in your home directory.
This way you can add, in this case, the name of your printer client program. Then when you start X windows, it will automatically be loaded every time.
It the printer manager is a daemon ( background process ) that does not run in graphics mode, you can edit the file: /etc/rc.local, and add the complete path/name of your program. The program will then start. every time you bring up your system.
I'm not sure where rc.local goes in a Knoppix distro ( the one you installed ), but I think it goes in /etc/rc.d/rc.local

Edit:
No such thing in Debian (Knoppix). I'm thinking BSD
Here's the way you do it: http://www.desktop-linux.net/debian-rclocal.htm

Hi Otto,

Here I am, writing via my iBook running YellowDog Linux 3.0, and using my external 128GB Maxtor Firewire/USB-2 hard drive

Open a shell as root, and do this:

insmod ieee1394
insmod ohci1394
insmod raw1394
insmod sbp2

Now do the command dmesg
Look at the end, and see if you see something like this:

Code:
ieee1394: Host added: Node[00:1023]  GUID[00000000fe68037a]  [Linux OHCI-1394]
ieee1394: Device added: Node[01:1023]  GUID[00000000003d8e42]  [Maxtor]
ieee1394: sbp2: Logged into SBP-2 device

- Max sectors per I/O supported: 255
- Max outstanding commands supported: 8
- Max outstanding commands per lun supported: 1

SCSI device sda: 240119808 512-byte hdwr sectors (122941 MB)
 sda: sda1
Now just make a mount point in your /mnt like this: mkdir /mnt/fw
And mount your drive like this: mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/fw

Your drive should now be mounted on /mnt/fw

Hello Kwag:
Thank you for your response and suggestions. I followed them, and this is the result of it:
Quote:
insmod ieee1394 > insmod ohci1394 > insmod raw1394 > insmod sbp2
When installing these modules, Knoppix gave an "already installed" message. Then I proceeded with the dmesg command, and while a bunch on information was retrieve, (I was working on the root shell) I am here posting what appears to be related to the western digital drive:

Quote:

Please note that after connecting the external drive to the USB port, Knoppix recognized it and it was mounted with no problems. Then I went back again to firewire connection, and the western digital unit was not present. I tried to mount it manually, with
Quote:
Now just make a mount point in your /mnt like this: mkdir /mnt/fw
And mount your drive like this: mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/fw
and while it allowed me to make the directory, I was not able to do the /mount/fw.
Quote:
knoppix@ttyp1[knoppix]$ mkdir /mnt/fw
mkdir: cannot create directory `/mnt/fw': File exists
knoppix@ttyp1[knoppix]$ su
root@ttyp1[knoppix]# mkdir /mnt/fw
mkdir: cannot create directory `/mnt/fw': File exists
root@ttyp1[knoppix]# mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/fw
mount: /dev/sda1 is not a valid block device
root@ttyp1[knoppix]# mount /dev/sda1/mnt/fw
mount: can't find /dev/sda1/mnt/fw in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab
root@ttyp1[knoppix]#
Now just make a mount point in your /mnt like this: mkdir /mnt/fw
And mount your drive like this: mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/fw
I am beginning to thinlk that perhaps the best way to do this is to operate with 2 OS, that is Linux and Windows............

While I have not tried it yet, I would venture to guess that using the USB 1.1 will really slow things down a lot.

Thanks again

Otto

Hi Otto,

Try this on a shell:
dmesg | grep sda

See if you get sda1 or sda2 or some other sdaX device.
Maybe sda1 is not your device attached/related to the ieee1394

Hi kwag
Thjis were my learning steps to enter the grep sda:
Quote:
knoppix@ttyp0[knoppix]$ su
root@ttyp0[knoppix]# dmesg |grep sda (Wrong entry)
root@ttyp0[knoppix]# dmesg | grep sda
root@ttyp0[knoppix]# dmesg / grep sda
Usage: dmesg [-c] [-n level] [-s bufsize]
root@ttyp0[knoppix]# dmesg | grep sda
root@ttyp0[knoppix]# dmesg

Linux version 2.4.22-xfs (root@Knoppix) (gcc version 2.95.4 20011002 (Debian pre
release)) #1 SMP Fri Sep 5 23:47:38 CEST 2003
and then lines of informatkion were retrieved. I looked for "sda", and the search did not find any "sda" entries.

Please note that I typed the dmseg command incorrectly and had to re enter it, then on the second dmesg command I received just the prompt "root@ttyp0[knoppix]#" , nothing else, and not knowing any better, I typed the sequence of commands that you see above.

Are the highlighted commands correct? Or should I have received information immediately after typing the "root@ttyp0[knoppix]# dmesg | grep sda" command?

Thank you very much for your help.

Otto

By the way, I have saved the information retrieved by the various commands on kword, and I could PM them to you, or posted here, if you find it necessary................

Hi Otto,

Yes, the command is correct. dmesg | grep sda
where the | (pipe) is the vertical bar.

Try this: cdrecord -scanbus
What devices show up

Hi kwag:
This is what I get when running the -scanbus command:

For some reason, it's not detecting your drive.
One last try, just for the hell of it. Do this:
modprobe \*
Now do the cdrecord -scanbus again.
Any new device

Maestro:

I am now running with the new 3.3 version, but I still can not detec the external hard drive.
I did run the "cdrecord -scanbus", but did not see any new device, only the Hitachi CD Rom.
Before I forget, and this may be a silly question, but "cdrecord", does it imply a recording device per se? meaning a CD or DVD device? or does the "-scanbus" also looks for external hard drive devices as well?.

Just as a talking point, when I run the dmesg, amongst other information, I receive the following:
Quote:
scsi: <fdomain> Detection failed (no card)
Failed initialization of WD-7000 SCSI card!

Will this somehow have something to do with the problem?.

Now, the new dmesg version is given me changes in a couple of lines dealing with ieee1394:

root@ttyp0[knoppix]#
I have also posted on both the linux.iso net and the knoppix.net. Have tried their suggestions, but no dice.
I am stricking out (am playing like the Baltimore Orioles), is it time to create a larger partition and try linux as a 2nd OS? Would that help?
The other option is to run the WD with USB 1.1 port. Noooo, I do not think that this an option for video transfer, too slow...........

Humildemente

cdrecord is the "Nero" of cd burning in the U*IX world
The -scanbus parameter, reports all "attached" devices, IDE or SCSI, as Linux uses the sg* (Generic) devices to make non-SCSI devices look like SCSI devices. So your Firewire will be driven by a device, that the system will treat as a SCSI device. More references here: http://www.torque.net/sg/

Well, I see you have a "Future Domain" SCSI card. I haven't used that card in years
I use an Adaptec WIDE SCSI card. But Future Domain should be suported in the kernel
Try: modprobe fdomain
It should load.
To see what SCSI drivers you have, take a look under: /lib/modules/2.4.22-xfs/kernel/drivers/scsi/

That's the correct path for Knopix 3.2. Not sure what the new ISO you downloaded has, but it's probably the same.

That's because sda1 is not attached to any driver. In my case, on YellowDog Linux, sda1 is the mount point for my external Firewire hard disk.

USB 1.1, no way
Not for video. But USB 2.0 is really fine for video, even for high speed captures
I have two USB-2.0 drives, and I can capture at 720x480 with a very small number of dropped frames, on a full one hour capture. ( with preview disabled, of course) .

Hello kwag:

Well, another downer. My knoppix will not take the fdomain command. I have tried to install it, but it tells me that this is a no no:
Quote:
knoppix@ttyp0[knoppix]$ su
root@ttyp0[knoppix]# modprobe fdomain
/lib/modules/2.4.22-xfs/kernel/drivers/scsi/fdomain.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/2.4.22-xfs/kernel/drivers/scsi/fdomain.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.22-xfs/kernel/drivers/scsi/fdomain.o failed

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
root@ttyp0[knoppix]#
could it be that I do not have the fdomain card?

I am going to call it quits, at least for tonight. I have been trying to make it work the entire day, and am running into dead alleys............

Thank you for your patience and suggestions

Otto

Hi Otto,
Sorry I'm reading your log too fast
I just read WD-7000, so try: modprobe wd7000 and see what happens

Hi kwag:

No dice on wd7000:

Quote:
knoppix@ttyp0[knoppix]$ su
root@ttyp0[knoppix]# modprobe fdomain
/lib/modules/2.4.22-xfs/kernel/drivers/scsi/fdomain.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/2.4.22-fs/kernel/drivers/scsi/fdomain.o:insmod /lib/modules/2.4.22-xfs/kernel/drivers/scsi/fdomain.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.22-xfs/kernel/drivers/scsi/fdomain.o: insmod fdomain failed
I also tried to install wd7000

It appears that for whatever reason, my system does not want to recognize the WD drive, and if this cannot be resolved, then I need to look for a couple of solutions to reach my main goal, that is, to use ffmpeg and linux to encode the backups.
Something that comes to mind at this time:
1.- Increase the partition on hda5 from 5 Giga to perhaps 8 giga, it is not that much, but it may allow me to back up one film at a time.
Then move the encoded file, via Windows, to the external hard drive. (I still need to learn how to create a common file for both systems
2.- Load linux into the hard drive, and work with both operating systems. I do not know if doing this will solve the external drive issue.
3.- This is in the future. Buy another portable and work with linux here.

Regards

Otto

Update:

According to linux 1394, I should install the ieee1394, ohci1394 and sbp_1394 modules, in that order. The first 2 had alredy been installed, but when I tried to install sbp2_1394, the message received was that such module did not exist (Not in those words). So tomorow I will try to locate the sbp2_1394 module.

Then try: modprobe sbp2*
That should load any module that starts with sbp2.

Hi kwag:
I just did that command, and it told me that the sbp2 already existed, and in fact, it is
Using /lib/modules/2.24.22-xfs/kernel/drivers/ieee1394/sbp2.o
Should the sbp2.0 be sbp2_1394? Do not know..........
Something else that I just found:
Quote:
Currently, the SBP-2 driver registers with the SCSI stack "before" detecting SBP-2 devices on the IEEE 1394 bus. This means that we miss the initial SCSI bus scan. In order to actually "detect" a SBP-2 device, you must either use the profcs add single device, remove single device, or a shell script such as rescan-scsi-bus.sh.. The easiest way to add/detect new SBP-2 devices is to run the shell script rescan-scsi-bus.sh."
I have downloaded the script and will try it tomorrow, and hopefully won't break anything..........

Thanks again


Hasta manana

Otto
