I tried a 'EXSYS EX-6500E' IEEE 1394A PCI card in a Tezro and an Octane
(IRIX 6.5.28) and there was no problem reading CF cards from my Nikon
(1 and 2 GB) with a SanDisk Extreme FireWire reader.
I used following mount command:
mount -t dos -o partition=1,ro /dev/dsk/1394/30ff00e0012f9a/lun0vol/c4p0 /FW
Seems the TI Texas Instruments OHCI-Lynx chipset does the trick. Hinv
reports the card as:
'DMediaPro DM10 FW option: unit 0, revision 1.1.0'
Next I will buy some more of the cards for my second Octane, the Fuel
and I will also try to use it in my O2 (R12k).
btw: EUR 23,60 on eBay, probably somebody finds a cheaper source
