CONFIG_FIREWIRE_NOSY: Nosy - a FireWire traffic sniffer for PCILynx cards

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_FIREWIRE_NOSY:

Help text

Nosy is an IEEE 1394 packet sniffer that is used for protocol analysis and in development of IEEE 1394 drivers, applications, or firmwares.

This driver lets you use a Texas Instruments PCILynx 1394 to PCI link layer controller TSB12LV21/A/B as a low-budget bus analyzer. PCILynx is a nowadays very rare IEEE 1394 controller which is not OHCI 1394 compliant.

The following cards are known to be based on PCILynx or PCILynx-2: IOI IOI-1394TT (PCI card), Unibrain Fireboard 400 PCI Lynx-2 (PCI card), Newer Technology FireWire 2 Go (CardBus card), Apple Power Mac G3 blue & white and G4 with PCI graphics (onboard controller).

To compile this driver as a module, say M here: The module will be called nosy. Source code of a userspace interface to nosy, called nosy-dump, can be found in tools/firewire/ of the kernel sources.

If unsure, say N.
