[Bug 994790] Re: [Dell XT3] Firewire does not work


I see a similar problem with 12.04 on an HP EliteBook 8530w:
Kernel Linux 3.5.0-45-generic
Release 12.04 (precise) 32-bit

On Firewire insertion, nothing happens and the disk does not start.

If I then plug the disk using USB 2, the disk starts and works.
If I then unplug the USB cable, then plug the Firewire cable again, this time, the disk starts, gets properly automounted, and works perfectly until shutdown.

  [Dell XT3] Firewire does not work

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in “linux” source package in Precise:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  12.04 LTS on the Dell XT3.  During certification testing, it was
  observed that the firewire port does not seem to be functioning
  properly.  No messages are generated on insert or remove events with a
  known working firewire drive.

  What more can I say?  Firewire, which has worked on other systems with
  12.04, is not working on the XT3.
