Subsystem repository

The latest updates to the ieee1394 and firewire subsystems of the kernel find their way into the mainline via the linux1394-2.6.git subsystem repository:

Fetch via git clone or git fetch:

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/ieee1394/linux1394-2.6.git
http://www.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/ieee1394/linux1394-2.6.git (use this if git:// is blocked by a corporate firewall)

Browse via gitweb:

http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/ieee1394/linux1394-2.6.git

Branches in linux1394-2.6.git:
Aside from occasional topic branches, the repository contains the following long-lived branches.

  • master: summary branch of the head of development
  • for-next: Stephen Rothwell regularly pulls this branch into the linux-next integration testing tree.
  • for-linus: Linus Torvalds pulls from there when requested.
  • origin: reflects what has already been merged into the mainline


Mainline

The ieee1394/ firewire kernel drivers in Linus' current tree are usually very up-to-date as well.

Fetch via git clone or git fetch:

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git
http://www.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git (use this if git:// is blocked by a corporate firewall)

Browse via gitweb:

Other repositories

Stefan Richter tracks new ieee1394/ firewire patches at http://user.in-berlin.de/~s5r6/linux1394/.

He also provides ieee1394/ firewire subsystem backport patches at http://user.in-berlin.de/~s5r6/linux1394/updates/ as tarballs and quilt series for two or three recent stable kernel releases. This way you can use very recent ieee1394/ firewire drivers without having to run Linus' latest -rc kernel.

The low-level userspace library libraw1394 is maintained in Dan Dennedy's git repository. There is also a mirroring repository and a collection of tarball releases at kernel.org. See Libraries#libraw1394.

The firedtv kernel driver for FireWire DVB devices is maintained via the V4L/DVB repository (Mercurial, git).
