Configuring Firewire, /etc/modules.conf - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

Dear experts, I'm using Redhat Advanced Server 2.1 I hate to have to ask what seems to be such a simple question, but after a number of hours of trying, I'm going to ask.

    Default Configuring Firewire, /etc/modules.conf

    Dear experts,

    I'm using Redhat Advanced Server 2.1

    I hate to have to ask what seems to be such a simple question,
    but after a number of hours of trying, I'm going to ask.

    I've been able to manually get my machine to work with my
    external firewire hard drive.

    modprobe ohci1394
    modprobe sbp2


    fdisk -l

    Disk /dev/sda: 255 heads, 63 sectors, 392 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 bytes

    Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
    /dev/sda1 1 392 3148708+ b Win95 FAT32
    ....


    cat /proc/scsi/sbp2/1
    IEEE-1394 SBP-2 protocol driver


    mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/firewire -rw -t vfat


    -----------

    Now, I'm trying to get the hotplugging to work at boot time.
    I've been tinkering with /etc/modules.conf, but haven't been
    able to get it to work yet.

    /etc/modules.conf:

    alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc
    alias usb-controller usb-uhci
    alias usb-controller1 usb-ohci
    alias char-major-195 nvidia

    alias firewire ieee1394

    - I added this last line, and rebooted, but
    that didn't make any difference, so I tried this:

    alias firewire sbp2

    and rebooted. But again, nothing with fdisk -l.
    And nothing in:
    /proc/scsi


    Is modules.conf the right file to modify?
    What is the correct line to add?

    Thanks a lot

    Try, as root editing /etc/rc.d/rc.local and add the two lines above.
    Example below;

    #!/bin/sh
    #
    # This script will be executed *after* all the other init scripts. # You
    can put your own initialization stuff in here if you don't # want to do
    the full Sys V style init stuff.

    /sbin/modprobe ohci1394
    /sbin/modprobe sbp2

    touch /var/lock/subsys/local

    Thanks, that worked well! I knew that this was probably a
    simple answer.

    The only thing is that fdisk did not show anything until
    the drive was mounted.


    cat /proc/scsi/scsi
    Attached devices:
    Host: scsi1 Channel: 00 Id: 00 Lun: 00
    Vendor: QUANTUM Model: FIREBALL ST3.2A Rev: A0F.
    Type: Direct-Access ANSI SCSI revision: 06


    cd /proc/scsi/sbp2
    [rootlocalhost sbp2]# ls -l
    total 0
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 Dec 28 13:35 1


    cat /proc/scsi/sbp2/1
    IEEE-1394 SBP-2 protocol driver


    - but nothing with fdisk


    fdisk -l
    - no new disk.
