OS/2 and FireWire (IEEE1394).
Listing of tested and reported FireWire devices

Welcome to the OS/2 and FireWire web site. This part of os2warp.be is a joint venture between OS/2 User Group Dresden, netlabs.org and os2warp.be.

1. Browse FireWire Database

For your convenience, we've constructed a search system, so that you needn't browse through the large tables of tested and reported devices, but that you can just get information about the devices you want. Just enter your search key(s), add some extra filters if you wish, like the type of FireWire device/peripheral, and click the Go button. These FireWire databases have been completely synchronized with OS/2 CHL's extensive hardware list to suit your needs best.

Date Announcement
2005-02-06Since the "revolution" in the Ukraine is now over, Alexandr can also do some more work on the Firewire driver. The Firewire specific part of the sbp2 protocol is now implement, what is left is the OS/2 specific part. After this is done, a new Beta version will be released.
2004-08-06Today, netlabs.org, the OS/2 User Group Dresden and Alexandr Cherkaev are releasing the first alpha version of the IEEE 1394a - Firewire driver set for OS/2 and eComStation. This version does not yet enable you to use external Firewire hard drive cases, it will only show if your Firewire controller is supported by this driver! Install the driver and use the included resource manager to see if the driver did correctly recognize your Firewire controller!
2004-07-20The first alpha version of the driver will hopefully appear in the next two weeks. Work has started on a PM application that will display information about the firewire hardware found.
2004-07-09Roadmap Update
1) OHCI card driver: coding finished, driver should work, partly tested. Not implemented features and limitations: only one card supported, resource manager stuff not implemented yet
2) IEE1394 Stack: attach/detach and idc routines mostly implemented, host handling code implemented, packet handling code mostly done and tested, node manager not finished, sbp2 driver not started yet
3) Alpha release will contain a test program like netlabs usbresmgr. So users can test different host adapters, attach devices to firewire bus and see their names, vendor codes etc.
2004-07-06We split the driver and you can checkout the new version from CVS (-D 2004-06-26), or you use his script.
2004-06-29Finally, the driver is too big to fit into the 64KByte segment available to an OS/2 driver. There are ways to work arround this limitation, but we decided to split the driver into three parts. This move was planed for phase three of the driver development anyway.
Doing the split now means that we have to skip phase two of the development and move to phase three right now.
This will delay the availability of the first version of the driver.
2004-06-10Updated the netlabs.org Firewire project website. (added a screenshot of the messages of driver 0_0_1 and a link to this news page).
2004-06-08The first internal release of the driver is ready. It is tagged doctor64_rel_0_0_1 and can be retrieved from CVS. A cmd file can be found here.
You need an OS/2 debug kernel and a null modem cable. The driver has a few breackpoints that will be triggered during boot and on shutdown.
2004-06-05We have created a mailing list for the development team. All messages can be read at gmane.org.
2004-06-03We have added some information about the hardware that we use for development.
2004-05-25In the future, netlabs.org will cooperate with os2warp.be on all hardware related projects. I think this is a very good idea, and I am looking forward to using the good support infrastructure of os2warp.be
