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 188.8.131.52-rt kernel.
Is has the old fire wire stack enabled, and works with my Canon DV video camera via firewire.
remove the alsa-firmware package
