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 (Cc: Dan Dennedy).

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

The list is unmoderated except if the message body exceeds 100 kB or if one of sf.net's spam filters matches.

linux1394-user

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

Driver bugs which are found in a recent kernel can be reported at the mailing lists or at http://bugzilla.kernel.org/. Usually it is more effective to report a bug at a mailing list instead of the bug tracker. That way, more people see the report right away when it is posted. Bug reports can still be copied over into the tracker later if they don't appear to be fixable in the short term.

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.
