However, I note it does not appear to give the Vendor-ID/Device-ID (or if it does, I could not figure it out). I installed the script under /home/oldcpu/bin. For example, when I plug in the firewire connection to my Seagate Free Agent XTreme external 1TB hard drive (which has both USB and Firewire) I get (from ls1394):
Out of curiousity I did a “hwinfo” withOUT the Firewire device NOT plugged in and redirected the output to a text file. Then I did a “hwinfo” WITH the Firewire device plugged in and redirected the output to a different text file. Then I ran a “diff” on the two files.
One gets a lot of output from that difference. Too much. Its definitely no replacement for ls1394 as one is swamped with information with the “diff” from hwinfo.
