No Firewire (ieee1384) in default kernel

Which kernel for 64 3.0 beta3 has firewire support? Just migrated over from an Arch Linux install and am giving Debian another go. I've always hated dpkg and synaptic and aptitude, but I've been hearing good things about the kernels you guys have been compiling. So, why no firewire compiled into the vanilla install? uname -ra Linux myhost 2.6.29-1-multimedia-amd64 #1 SMP PREEMPT RT Thu Feb 26 16:18:05 UTC 2009 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Strange...

I am sure I wrote something different... Anyway, The kernel will be released before or with beta 4. There is a very loose release schedule at the moment because of some OEM work, so I cannot give the release date. Wait and see.

Why.

Because it is a beta, Free tried a kernel with the new firewire stack. This is still not supported at the moment, and the next kernel will support the old firewire stack.

Thanks, but I'll moving back
