Mailing lists

linux1394-devel

This is our mailinglist for

  • discussion of kernel drivers development,
  • discussion of library and application development, unless there are dedicated mailinglists,
  • qualified bug reports,
  • posting patches for the ieee1394/ firewire kernel drivers (Cc: linux-kernel),
  • posting patches for libraw1394.

Address: linux1394-devel@lists.sourceforge.net

Subscription is not required to post. Replies will usually be Cc'ed to you. It is polite to subscribe before posting though.
You can subscribe at: http://lists.sourceforge.net/mailman/listinfo/linux1394-devel

The list is unmoderated except if the message body exceeds 150 kB or if one of sf.net's spam filters matches.

If you have logs or screen shots etc. which would exceed 150 kB, please upload them on web space — or create a bug entry at the bug tracker and attach the file there — and post a link.

This is the proper mailinglist for problem reports, installation or compatibility questions, etc..

In case of problem reports, please include the following with your post:

  • kernel version
  • which kernel drivers you are using (lsmod | grep -e 1394 -e firewire)
  • relevant messages from dmesg
  • make and model of your FireWire peripheral
  • adapter card model and/or OHCI chipset
  • output of lspci
  • versions of libraries (libraw1394...), application or utility (if applicable)

Bug tracker

The kernel bug tracker http://bugzilla.kernel.org/ is used to keep record of a few longer-standing bugs. A list of currently open IEEE 1394 subsystem bugs: bugzilla query

Please do not use bugzilla.kernel.org to report bugs. The currently limited capabilities of bugzilla.kernel.org make it too impractical as a tool to receive reports, solicit more diagnostics, and propose, discuss and test bug fixes. Therefore, please send bug reports to the linux1394-devel mailinglist instead.


IRC

The project has a chat channel at freenode, #linux1394.
irc://irc.freenode.net:6667/#linux1394.

Note, IRC is quite well suited for talks about development issues, but it is much less convenient than the mailing lists for usage questions. There are by far more people present on the mailing lists which much increases your chances to get qualified answers there. And people can search in the list archives for possible earlier related discussions. IRC is definitely not suitable for bug reports; those should go to linux1394-devel (first choice) or the bug tracker (second choice).

If you enter the IRC channel and see that other people are listening there, be prepared that they may not respond immediately or not even within hours because they might be away. So be patient and keep watching the channel long enough for eventual responses.
