Review of Linux Compatibility

The LogiLink Express Card with the product ID PC0036A extends the Laptop/PC by two FireWire ports (IEEE1394a).

The card is automatically recognized by the Linux kernel if plugged in:

pciehp 0000:00:1c.3:pcie04: Card present on Slot(3)
pci 0000:06:00.0: PME# supported from D0
pci 0000:06:00.0: PME# disabled
pciehp: Could not get hotplug parameters
ohci1394 0000:06:00.0: enabling device (0000 -> 0003)
ohci1394 0000:06:00.0: PCI INT A -> GSI 19 (level, low) -> IRQ 19
ohci1394: fw-host0: OHCI-1394 1.0 (PCI): IRQ=[19]  MMIO=[c4000000-c40007ff]  Max Packet=[2]  IR/IT contexts=[4/4]

In parallel, the kernel automatically loads (since Ubuntu 9.10) the necessary kernel modules :

raw1394                29096  0
dv1394                 21096  0
ohci1394               33780  1 dv1394
ieee1394              100896  3 raw1394,dv1394,ohci1394

and creates the device dev/raw1394.

A device connected to the first port of the Express Card can only be used if also a device is connected to the second port (e.g. an external hard disk). This is due to a hardware error of the card which is independent of the operating system in use and also is valid for Windows.
