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. .
