I'm pretty sure I've used firewire with 10.0.

When you plug it in does anything show up in dmesg?

dmesg | tail -50
should provide diagnostic info related to plugging in the drive.

It should also tell which drive name is assigned. ie /dev/sda etc.

Then you can check if it was automounted by just typing mount, but if not:

fdisk -l /dev/sd? should give you a list of partitions.

mount /dev/sd?1 /mnt etc should allow you to manually mount it.

Once you have all of that working you can come back and look at your
automount logic. (I don't know much about that. I typically prefer
manual mounts so I have full control.)

Thanks Greg,

All I see is the following;

ieee1394: Error parsing configrom for node 0-00:1023
ieee1394: Node suspended: ID:BUS[0-00:1023] GUID[0010b92100a33b9a]
ieee1394: Node resumed: ID:BUS[0-00:1023] GUID[0010b92100a33b9a]

Any suggestions?



Sorry, looks like you have a pretty basic issue to me. ie. There
should be more output than the above.

If no one can help you here I would look for a LKML-ieee1394 mailing
list (ieee1394 is the ISO name for firewire.) The kernel your running
is sort of old for a LKML list, but they may at least help you with
