Subject: Point Grey Flea2

Dear All,

I am trying to reproduce the SLS Firewire Camera video server described here:

http://epics.web.psi.ch/software/firewire/

which was originally based on the Point Grey Flea camera model. I ended up purchasing a Flea2 model. I haven't been able to get the Flea2 to work on Linux (details below). I am wondering if other folks are using the Flea2 on Linux and if so with what configuration?

Thanks and regards,

Details:


We have been able to get the Flea2 to work on Windows with the Carnegie Melon DCAM driver for windows (http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~iwan/1394/) however the Flea2 doesn't seem to be recognized on our Linux box.

We are not able to detect our Flea2 when it's connected to an Adaptec
FireConnect 8300 card on a computer running Redhat Enterprise Linux 3, kernel 2.4.21.


Here is what we see in syslog when connecting the camera:
------
ohci1394: $Rev: 896 $ Ben Collins <bcollins@debian.org>
ohci1394_0: OHCI-1394 1.1 (PCI): IRQ=[20]  MMIO=[d0014000-d00147ff]  Max

------

And here is the output of testlibraw:
------

polling for leftover messages
------

Accordingly, both dc1394_vloopback and coriander are unable to see the
camera.

We have two other types of firewire cameras that are working
properly on this system.

We see the same behavior when using libdc1394-2.0 (and coriander-2.0) or libdc1394-1.2.1 (and coriander-1.0.1).

Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated. Point Grey does not support Linux for this model.
