HI Quentin

Not sure I would try and compile a kernel as a user.

That's why I referred to my repository ;-)

It seems then that DV capture is not going to happen in beta 3.

It is planned for 3.0 release

I can't install the old 2.1 as there is a problem with old software not installing ( tried it twice)

Any ideas on what Linux distro I can load that will still use the old firewire stack, just to get the stuff off the camera?

Check the forums:


I hadn't used the DV camera for ages and didn't realise the changes

would bring me to a stop, getting a bit embarrassing this end with the windows crowd!

Had the same issue ;-)

To install the 2.6.31 kernel I am using at the moment (AMD64):

Add my repository to your sources.list

deb http://apt.harleystudio.co.za/ hardy main

using synaptic, deinstall the alsa-firmware package (included in the kernel package)

and afterwards install the kernel.

Is has the old fire wire stack enabled, and works with my Canon DV video camera via firewire.



remove the alsa-firmware package
