[opensuse] firewire 800 disks not working on openSUSE 11.1

I have a firewire card:

Texas Instruments TSB82AA2 IEEE-1394b Link Layer Controller (rev 01)

and an external firewire disk:

LACIE "Big Disk Extreme"

In openSUSE 10.3 I was able to mount and format the disk. In 11.1, I see
this in /var/log/messages) when I power the disk on:

kernel: ieee1394: Node changed: 0-01:1023 -> 0-00:1023
kernel: ieee1394: The root node is not cycle master capable; selecting a
new root node and resetting...
kernel: ieee1394: Error parsing configrom for node 0-00:1023
kernel: ieee1394: Node changed: 0-00:1023 -> 0-01:1023

I do not think the drive has broken. Unfortunately, this is the only
system around here that I can test it with. My 10.3 system is gone...

Anyone else having 1394 disk issues with 11.1? I do not see much
activity on bugzilla.

will the right answers come out?' I am not able rightly to apprehend
the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question.

It is RSofT and there is always something under construction.
