depends on PCI || BROKEN
select NET
IEEE 1394 describes a high performance serial bus, which is also
known as FireWire(tm) or i.Link(tm) and is used for connecting all
sorts of devices (most notably digital video cameras) to your
If you have FireWire hardware and want to use it, say Y here. This
is the core support only, you will also need to select a driver for
your IEEE 1394 adapter.
To compile this driver as a module, say M here: the
module will be called ieee1394.
comment "Subsystem Options"
depends on IEEE1394
bool "Excessive debugging output"
depends on IEEE1394
If you say Y here, you will get very verbose debugging logs from
the subsystem which includes a dump of the header of every sent
and received packet. This can amount to a high amount of data
collected in a very short time which is usually also saved to
disk by the system logging daemons.
Say Y if you really want or need the debugging output, everyone
else says N.
config IEEE1394_OUI_DB
bool "OUI Database built-in"
depends on IEEE1394
If you say Y here, then an OUI list (vendor unique ID's) will be
compiled into the ieee1394 module. This doesn't really do much
except being able to display the vendor of a hardware node. The
downside is that it adds about 300k to the size of the module,
or kernel (depending on whether you compile ieee1394 as a
module, or static in the kernel).
This option is not needed for userspace programs like gscanbus
to show this information.
bool "Build in extra config rom entries for certain functionality"
depends on IEEE1394
Some IEEE1394 functionality depends on extra config rom entries
being available in the host adapters CSR. These options will
allow you to choose which ones.
config IEEE1394_CONFIG_ROM_IP1394
bool "IP-1394 Entry"
depends on IEEE1394_EXTRA_CONFIG_ROMS && IEEE1394
Adds an entry for using IP-over-1394. If you want to use your
IEEE1394 bus as a network for IP systems (including interacting
with MacOSX and WinXP IP-over-1394), enable this option and the
eth1394 option below.
bool "Export all symbols of ieee1394's API"
depends on IEEE1394
default n
Export all symbols of ieee1394's driver programming interface, even
those that are not currently used by the standard IEEE 1394 drivers.
This option does not affect the interface to userspace applications.
Say Y here if you want to compile externally developed drivers that
make extended use of ieee1394's API. It is otherwise safe to say N.
comment "Device Drivers"

comment "Texas Instruments PCILynx requires I2C"
depends on IEEE1394 && I2C=n
config IEEE1394_PCILYNX
tristate "Texas Instruments PCILynx support"
depends on PCI && IEEE1394 && I2C
select I2C_ALGOBIT
Say Y here if you have an IEEE-1394 controller with the Texas
Instruments PCILynx chip. Note: this driver is written for revision
2 of this chip and may not work with revision 0.
To compile this driver as a module, say M here: the
module will be called pcilynx.
config IEEE1394_OHCI1394
tristate "OHCI-1394 support"
depends on PCI && IEEE1394
Enable this driver if you have an IEEE 1394 controller based on the
OHCI-1394 specification. The current driver is only tested with OHCI
chipsets made by Texas Instruments and NEC. Most third-party vendors
use one of these chipsets. It should work with any OHCI-1394
compliant card, however.
To compile this driver as a module, say M here: the
module will be called ohci1394.
comment "Protocol Drivers"
depends on IEEE1394
config IEEE1394_VIDEO1394
tristate "OHCI-1394 Video support"
depends on IEEE1394 && IEEE1394_OHCI1394
This option enables video device usage for OHCI-1394 cards. Enable
this option only if you have an IEEE 1394 video device connected to
an OHCI-1394 card.
config IEEE1394_SBP2
tristate "SBP-2 support (Harddisks etc.)"
depends on IEEE1394 && SCSI && (PCI || BROKEN)
This option enables you to use SBP-2 devices connected to your IEEE
1394 bus. SBP-2 devices include harddrives and DVD devices.
config IEEE1394_SBP2_PHYS_DMA
bool "Enable replacement for physical DMA in SBP2"
depends on IEEE1394 && IEEE1394_SBP2 && EXPERIMENTAL && (X86_32 || PPC_32)
This builds sbp2 for use with non-OHCI host adapters which do not
support physical DMA or for when ohci1394 is run with phys_dma=0.
Physical DMA is data movement without assistence of the drivers'
interrupt handlers. This option includes the interrupt handlers
that are required in absence of this hardware feature.
This option is buggy and currently broken on some architectures.
If unsure, say N.
config IEEE1394_ETH1394
tristate "Ethernet over 1394"
depends on IEEE1394 && EXPERIMENTAL && INET
select IEEE1394_CONFIG_ROM_IP1394
This driver implements a functional majority of RFC 2734: IPv4 over
1394. It will provide IP connectivity with implementations of RFC
2734 found on other operating systems. It will not communicate with
older versions of this driver found in stock kernels prior to 2.6.3.
This driver is still considered experimental. It does not yet support
MCAP, therefore multicast support is significantly limited.
config IEEE1394_DV1394
tristate "OHCI-DV I/O support"
depends on IEEE1394 && IEEE1394_OHCI1394
This driver allows you to transmit and receive DV (digital video)
streams on an OHCI-1394 card using a simple frame-oriented
The user-space API for dv1394 is documented in dv1394.h.
To compile this driver as a module, say M here: the
module will be called dv1394.
config IEEE1394_RAWIO
tristate "Raw IEEE1394 I/O support"
depends on IEEE1394
Say Y here if you want support for the raw device. This is generally
a good idea, so you should say Y here. The raw device enables
direct communication of user programs with the IEEE 1394 bus and
thus with the attached peripherals.
To compile this driver as a module, say M here: the
module will be called raw1394.
