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 2.6.31.6-rt kernel.



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



Regards,



Quentin

remove the alsa-firmware package
