Ok, first I have commented out enable_smbus(), for that there are
unreadable characters at the console and it takes the same time --> the
Then I recognized the lines above in auto.c, which disable the Firewire
stuff, but The Epia-ML does not have Firewire, ok it is the same chipset
and the firewire is integrated in the chip, but voila it works.
I have commented out line 119-123 and all works fine on high speed :D
Is there a better way?
And now, the next problem.
