CONFIG_FIREWIRE: New FireWire stack, EXPERIMENTAL

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_FIREWIRE has multiple definitions:

FireWire driver stack found in drivers/firewire/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_FIREWIRE:

Help text

This is the new-generation IEEE 1394 (FireWire) driver stack a.k.a. Juju, a new implementation designed for robustness and simplicity. See http://ieee1394.wiki.kernel.org/index.php/Juju_Migration for information about migration from the older Linux 1394 stack to the new driver stack.

To compile this driver as a module, say M here: the module will be called firewire-core.

IEEE 1394 (FireWire) support - alternative stack, EXPERIMENTAL found in drivers/firewire/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_FIREWIRE:

Help text

This is the "Juju" FireWire stack, a new alternative implementation designed for robustness and simplicity. You can build either this stack, or the classic stack (the ieee1394 driver, ohci1394 etc.) or both. Please read http://wiki.linux1394.org/JujuMigration before you enable the new stack.

To compile this driver as a module, say M here: the module will be called firewire-core. It functionally replaces ieee1394, raw1394, and video1394.

NOTE:

You should only build ONE of the stacks, unless you REALLY know what you are doing.

This module functionally replaces ieee1394, raw1394, and video1394. To access it from application programs, you generally need at least libraw1394 version 2. IIDC/DCAM applications also need libdc1394 version 2. No libraries are required to access storage devices through the firewire-sbp2 driver.
