Repair a broken FireWire interface
Authored by: Auricchio on Nov 30, '05 10:17:57PM

I forget what machine you have, Rob. It's a G5 of some sort because you mention a front FireWire port.

On some of the newer systems, unplugging from AC resets the System Management Unit (SMU), which is analogous to the Power Management Unit (PMU) on older systems.

Resetting the PMU or SMU was something you hadn't been able to do before the unplugging business.
