Can you give me a URL for the linux ieee1394 mailing list?



Looking at the archives, it appears that pcilynx on PPC hardware has been broken horribly for a long time (at least since 2004). Furthermore, it looks like support for pcilynx may be dropped entirely from the next generation of ieee1394 drivers.

I'd suggest that pcilynx be disabled in the Debian PPC kernels, and a note to that effect be put in the release documents.

To what package should I send a bug report with that payload?
