MorphOS: Firewire-Stack Helios 0.4.560
Guillaume 'Yomgui' Roguez has published a new beta version of his firewire-stack for MorphOS 2.x on Aminet. This version was completely rewritten to get a similar design and API like the USB-Stack Poseidon. Therefore existing installations have to be removed first. A graphical user-interface will follow.

If a compatible SBP2-device was connected (external harddrive, CD-ROM) it is automatically established with the sbp2.class. If this should not work the MorphOS commands Mount and UnitControl can be used as well.

Any feedback of testers is very welcome. Known bugs:
  • Oxford ATA bridges (911/935 families) are known to not work after 2339 ORBs send from the computer. Afterwards a bus reset is needed to continue
  • Having multiple SBP2 devices on the same bus has not been really tested
  • Other kind of devices are not supported yet (more classes needed)
  • Code efficiency is not the first goal, so don't be surprised to see USB speed higer than FW! Especially when the client software doesn't request data enough per IO command
