Bug Description

Have been installing stuff on hoary, one of the updates was to the kernel. When
I booted the system this afternoon firewire / ieee1394 disks wouldn't work - I
have two sdc1 and sdd1. Checked dmesg and they weren't been detected at boot:
tried unplugging and replugging but nothing showing up in syslog. Checked lsmod
and ieee1394, sbp2 and ohci1394 appeared loaded. Past forum post said try rmmod
the modules and insmod them - didn't have any impact. Downgraded the kernel to
2.6.10-34 (hoary) and rebooted, the disks are detected and I can use them fine.

Set as major because losing disks in return for a security fix is a big problem.

There have been 2 security updates since -34. Can you please try installing 34.1
and see if that breaks?
and later 34.2 and see if that breaks?

It's quite an interesting problem given that none of the security fixes applied
are touching drivers.

Hi,

I actually replied to this the day after - bugzilla works through normal mail as
well as the web front end right?

I cannot find the -34.1 package anywhere - can you point me to somewhere I can
download it from please?

I guess it was removed when the -34.2 package superseded it. Google
finds it, but it's not on the security.ubuntu.com site anymore.
