I am trying PCLinoxOS P93-mini.
I can configure the FireWire port as ip over ethernet and can ping the othe XP machine connected.

With Puppy I am not that far.

So I would like to use the PCLinuxOS drivers in Puppy, but they have the form xxx1394.ko.gz

I suppose gz stands for gunzip, but I haven't found a unzip program.

Once unzipped, would the drivers work in Puppy?

Most likely not.
Have you checked the downloadable "all modules" for Puppy 2.02 to see if what you want is included?

I tried through the icon on the desktop.
The file(s) won't open and error messages to that aspect are given.
I'll try through the console.

I checked first in lib/modules.... and they are there.
Also I tried the procedure I did in previuos puppies, bet there is a regression, see:

I had already downloaded and tried an all-modules-k2.6.16.7.tar.gz to no avail, but I'll try the file you referenced.

I know I am in a domain which isn't used a lot yet, specialy the ip over eth 1394, but FireWire is a good connection at 400mbps, compared to ethernet 100mbps (unless you have a 1gbps one)

What frustrates me is that in PCLinuxOS (is at 2.6.16.27) I can get much further for the same function. The eth1394 driver reports correctly 'ip over eth1394' and I can indeed ping the other connected laptop (XP).

When detecting shared resources, PCLinuxOS sees even the lan group on the XP machine.

I haven't even gotten around to 2.02 yet (waiting for my disk in the mail) but I'll get to work on some basic firewire support when I do. FYI I have a HD install with most of the firewire support compiled right into the kernel instead of as modules, seems to be working great for my needs but then again I'm not trying to do eth over 1394.

Anyway, I'll get on it soon and try to help you out.

Nathan

Hello Nathan,

Thank you for jumping in.

I downloaded the all-modules Fluxit referenced and put them in /lib/modules/......
Now I can do the modprobe for all xxxx1394 modules and I don't get error messages anymore

But when I test with your testlibraw routine, I have a message error, that a lib (something with 1394 in and so.8.0.0) isn't found.
(I am not in puppy right now and forgot to write down the name)

But my ifconfig for the eth1394 device still reports unspecified in stead of ethernet and thus I can't ping the other machine, altho I can give an ip to the eth1394 device (in my case eth1).
I can ping from eth0 to eth1 on the same machine, but not to the other machine.

If I can help testing something, having the equipment, don't hesitate to let me know, as I prefer to stay with puppy.

It frustrates me a bit, that with PCLiuxOS I can get the eth1394 configured as IP4 over eth1394 and that at least I can ping from machine to machine. Their kernel is at 2.6.17.27
But I have to execute modprobe for all the xxxx1394 modules like I have to do in Puppy.

It should probably be libraw1394 that you need. It might be a good idea to re-compile it now, as I think the version I had is getting a little long in the tooth by this time.

It's good that you've gotten this far, shows that you're learning a lot more than when we first spoke a few months back.

Nathan
