Laptops and Notebooks with FireWire (i.Link, IEEE 1394) Port working with Linux



Firewire

"Firewire, also known as IEEE-1394 and iLink, is a high-speed serial bus system that was originally developed by Apple Computer. Currently, its widest implementation is for digital video; however, it has a lot of other uses." This bus is also known as i.LINK(TM).

The Linux IEEE 1394 Subsystem provides support for IEEE 1394 (FireWire,i.Link). It consists of a kernel subsystem as well as applications. A great variety of 1394 hardware works with Linux, including numerous IEEE 1394 laptop on-board adapters and CardBus adapters. Note that the Linux drivers are still rated experimental. Visit the webpage for information on how to setup the drivers, on hardware compatibility, and for mailing list contacts.

FireWire / IEEE-1394 Driver Project (Mailing List).

For firewire PCMCIA adapters see Survey of PCMCIA Cards. Please note, since PCMCIA-CS-3.1.22 the pcilynx_cb.o module provides some FireWire support. See also N.N. .
