General :: Permanently Changing Permission Of FireWire Device?

Jan 22, 2011

I just setup a FireWire audio interface. Everything works fine, except for I need rw-rw-rw- permissions on /dev/fw0. I can always sudo chmod 666 /dev/fw0 just before setting the thing up, but then it will be gone on the next rebooting.The solution to modify /etc/udev/rules.d/020-permissions.rules (which is for Ubuntu Breezy) doesn't go well for Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick because there is no /etc/udev/rules.d directory.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Open Firewire Capture Device

Jan 22, 2011

I'm trying to view the output of a dv firewire capture device (advc-100) fullscreen through vlc. I've read of people being able to do this but a detailed explanation of how eludes me.

I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 and VLC 1.1.4

The error message I'm given after trying to open through 'media>open capture device>play' is;


Your input can't be opened: VLC is unable to open the MRL 'v4l2:///dev/ffc1/'. Check the log for details.

(and I can't find the log)

I'm not even sure if I've got the device name right so I ran lspci from the command line which gave the following output (and I still can't work out what it is);


[ 0.008410] ... event mask: 000000000003ffff

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Input But No Output On Firewire Device?

Jun 11, 2011

I'm using FFADO on JACK in order to use my firewire device (M-Audio Profire 610) and I seem to have the opposite issue as others who have similar problems. Everything starts up fine, and I can record audio into Ardour using my inputs, but I can't get any output from any of my 8 line outs.

I've checked the connections using QjackCtl, and I tried to route audio from another program (Audacious) but I can't seem to pull audio out of the device (or the computer won't send my device audio?).

General :: Is There A Way Do Disable FireWire?

Apr 14, 2011

I'm currently pursuing a CCNA certification. I need to use a so called "Eagle Server" to do my lab exercises. I have the Linux Live CD (FEDORA CORE 3 KERNEL 2.6.12) and I have installed it on a laptop that I have (TOSHIBA EQUIUM M50-164, PSM57E). This laptop had Windows XP installed, so I created a 4GB FAT partition and booted with the Live CD.I need the CD in the tray every time I want to run Linux. Without the CD, it boots to Windows XP. Also, according to Eagle Server documentation, any modification to the server is available even after reboot. Well, that is not happening to me. Does someone have a clue why the server doesn't save the modifications? Is it because I need the Live CD to boot, even after I have installed on a FAT partition?

Eagle server supports only 1 network interface card, eth0. When I first run the server it showed me that the hardware mapped to eth0 was my wireless adapter. There is no option to disable it in my BIOS, so I just removed the hardware myself. After rebooting it show eth1394 on eth0. I presume that is the FireWire Adapter.What can I do so that eth0 is mapped to my LAN adapter (Marvell Yukon 88E8036 PCI-E Fast Ethernet)?Is there a way do disable FireWire?Please remember that due to 1st problem above, any changes to the server are not available after reboot So the main problem is that I can't ping from Eagle Server to the router and vice-versa

General :: Is Firewire Drive Emulation Possible With A PC?

Oct 20, 2010

Is there an application that allows one to 'export' a drive or virtual disk image to firewire so that the machine at the other end sees the computer as a regular firewire drive? Apple computers can do that via their target disk mode (hold down t on boot), but I am searching for an application that would work under Windows or Linux.The goal is to boot an older Apple iBook, which can not boot from USB, via this emulated firewire drive.

General :: Red Hat New Hardware Detection ?

Jan 20, 2010

If i install new hardware using a vmguest or physical system How can I detect it.


In AIX we just run cfgmgr -v. Is there a similar command in Red Hat?

I am guessing a reboot will pick it up if the device drivers are common enough and in the kernel already.

I want to know how to do this dynamically with the system on-line if possible.

General :: Mp3 Any Beat Detection Software

Apr 9, 2010

Amarok 2 can search through music collection using ID3v2 tag's 'bpm' field. That would be very nice to retag the entire music collection so I can find the 'mood' of the track I like.However I've not found any beat-detection software that could have helped me. Have you ever used one? CLI, preferably. Also I'm interested if there's anything alike for tagging FLACs with the same 'bpm' field.

General :: Firewire Support In RHEL55 / SL55 - Make The PCI Card And The Drive Recogizable By The System?

Jul 9, 2011

I want to add a Lacie external drive to x64 box with SL55, but it has only Firewire interface. After searching a bit the net I could not find a working solution how to make the PCI card and the drive recogizable by the system, even if I removed Firewire from RHEL blacklist. The system does not see this piece of hardware. Does anyone has a positive experience with RHEL/SL with that issue? Similar trends search lists only quite old treads - ane recent experience?

Networking :: Ad Hoc Network Using Firewire?

Apr 21, 2010

I have several laptops that all have firewire ports. Here is what I want to do. connect two laptops together using firewire across the table don't care about any existing network connection either laptop might have in progress use firewire for an interconnecting ad-hoc, static network link establish file and folder sharing between the two laptops (NFS makes a lot of sense but there are other options) Here is a likely scenario.

Two folks meet at some hotspot with a lot of data to share and exchange. Each is likely already on the net through the hotspot. Connecting firewire point-to-point gets an ad-hoc net and subnet that is independent of whatever might be happening with the hotspot. When this ad-hoc net comes up, udev or deviceKit (or whatever) rules enable the automatic sharing.

Fedora :: Slow Wireless N And Firewire 400?

Mar 29, 2010

I purchased a WD My Book with Firewire. What I have noticed is that whether I run Fedora or Ubuntu, the file transfers are slow compared to Windows Vista. The drive is formatted NTFS. For example, on the Fedora system I get about 30MB/s. Boot into Vista and I get about 36MB/s. On my laptop, using Ubuntu, I get about 36MB/s. In Vista on the same laptop I get about 48MB/s. It was around 35MB/s in Vista, but then I turned on the drive caching (a Vista setting for "performance"). So my guess is that Linux in general has the same issue.

I notice a similar story with wireless N on the laptop. Much slower in Ubuntu than in Vista, by almost 50%. Why would this be? I tried Fedora Live on the laptop as well, but got no better results for either wireless-N or firewire400. What I do notice is that I get the following when attaching the drive:

scsi 11:0:0:0: Direct-Access WD My Book 1028 PQ: 0 ANSI: 4
sd 11:0:0:0: Attached scsi generic sg9 type 0
sd 11:0:0:0: [sdi] 1953525168 512-byte logical blocks: (1.00 TB/931 GiB)
sd 11:0:0:0: [sdi] Write Protect is off

sd 11:0:0:0: [sdi] Cache data unavailable
sd 11:0:0:0: [sdi] Assuming drive cache: write through

I've searched using Google, but can't come up with anything.

Ubuntu / Apple :: Can't Boot 10.04 On Firewire Hd

Jul 26, 2010

I have successfully installed ubuntu on a seagate goflex hd and can get it to boot with using a usb cable and refit on my mac. But I cannot get it to boot with a firewire cable and I have not seen any instructions on how to do this with an intel imac, only a ppc.

The mac does recognize the external hard drive when I hold the option key when I turn on the mac, but I get a "no bootable device found" error once I select it...same thing happens with refit and firewire cable. Any ideas on how to get this to work? I am ok with running it via usb cable, but would like the firewire option.

General :: Can't Find Boot Device - Error "Unable To Determine Major/minor Number Of Root Device"

Mar 17, 2011

I just compiled my first own kernel (I'm using Arch Linux), following the tutorial on the german site. Now I tried to boot it, I ended up failing with this message: Code: Waiting 10 seconds for device /dev/sda1 ... Root device '/dev/sda1' doesn't exist, Attempting to create it. ERROR: Unable to determine major/minor number of root device '/dev/sda1' Here is the important part of my menu.lst:


I simply copy&pasted the Arch-entry, i.e. I also had the disk by uuid there. The failure message was the same, just the root device name was the different name Also, at first I did not have the initrd line in my menu.lst (as written in my tutorial that I may not need it). In this case I had this error message:

Debian Hardware :: Firewire Camcorder As Webcam

Mar 13, 2015

I recently switched to Linux. I got a Camcorder connected to my machine via firewire that under Win i used as a webcam. So I want the same to work in debian, but honestly i don't know how to do it. The thing i tried was to use a loopback device via v4l2loopback, so what i did exactly is:

1. install v4l2loopback
2. modprobe v4l2loopback
3. feed it via ffmpeg Code: Select allffmpeg -f iec61883 -i auto -f v4l2 /dev/video0this so far works like a charm, i can open the stream via vlc for example if i choose open device and point it to /dev/video0

My problem now is the device detection. For example "Cheese" and the adobe flash plugin doesn't recognize any webcam.

OpenSUSE Install :: Won't Boot Without Firewire Attached

Nov 15, 2010

I have a different problem with Firewire drives than I've seen posted here before. All my Firewire drives work just fine - too fine in fact. I can't boot without all of them being attached. Without them attached Suse just boots into a command prompt in maitenance mode. With ALL of them attached Suse boots just fine. I have tried shutting down normally with dirves attached and shutting down normally with drives disconnected (both unmounting before shut down and just discounting when machine powered off). Nothing changes. I need to be able to boot without the drives attached - I am using Suse 11.1 64 bit wiht KDE 3.5 on a 4 core Athlon. All system files are on internal hard drives - external drives just for data storage (no external USB drives).

Ubuntu :: Firewire Application (new Stack) Permission

Nov 10, 2010

I have updated my computer to Kubuntu 10.10 (which has the new firewire stack enabled by default) and now my firewire application is giving permission related problems. I try to read CSR_CHANNELS_AVAILABLE_HI (defined in libraw1394 which is used by the application) to see which isochronous channels are available to use:


With the old stack (raw1394) there are not problems and it runs fine and I get the octlet back containing the information about the free channels. But with the new stack (firewire_core and friends) I get a 'permission denied' (errno = 1) error. I do have permission to read/write /dev/fw* and I even tried running the application as root without any luck. If I read the config rom of a node (located at CSR_CONFIG_ROM) there are no permission problems and I am able to get the information/ What am I doing wrong? Did something change with the new stack (even though libraw1394 should be compatible with both stacks)? Is it a bug?
