Hi all, i'm trying to get my DV camera ( jvc gr-DVL9500 )to work on 64 studio. i booted up the machine with it plugged in ad X.org froze solid!! i had to hard shutdown three times and then i thought i'd better unplug the thing. Kino preferences dialogue says i need to load the raw1394 module, and grant access to /dev/raw1394. any clue how i ought to do this?? thanx- dav=-0

Yes, my typo... The fact is that my video camera works on the 2.6.21 kernel, but not on 2.6.22 2.1 RC1 runs the 2.6.21 kernel, and all my hardware is very happy so far.

hum... In Ubuntu Studio, the best way is to add your user name to the user group "disk" keep in mind that it may cause a security problem if you are using firewire for networking, but it is not very used. Toine

Doesn't work in the 2.6.22 multimedia kernel it seems 64studio:/home/qharley# modprobe raw 1394 FATAL: Error inserting raw (/lib/modules/2.6.22-1-multimedia-amd64/kernel/drivers/char/raw.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg) 64studio:/home/qharley# I'll open a ticket.

There should be no space in raw1394. Try modprobe raw1394 instead of modprobe raw 1394

Start the root-terminal and type in modprobe raw1394 and you should be good to go

This should be installed by default. I will try my old canon camcorder on my system, and let you know. Last time I tried (2.0 pre) it worked fine!
