thanx alot for your post iscurrah

I have disable the eth1394, but only while working on this problem and havent tried to stop it at boot.

Sounds like it could be a good idea.

I'll have a dabble on it. Havent had time to try the last posters idea yet ?? (bring on 40 hour days )

and by .config you mean kernel config file ??? in /boot ??

Hi,

if you've got the linux kernel source installed it should be in a directory /usr/src/linux-2.6.8mdk (I think).
There is a file in there called .config - generally don't edit this manually, use 'make menuconfig' instead.

Ever recompiled your kernel before ? If not, check on the net how to do it before starting ! It's not hard, but can easily leave you with a non-booting PC.

Good Luck !

Iain.

I spent 6 hours today setting up my Panasonic NV-GS400 digital video camera. Finally got it working! Your problem is very similar to mine...

I saw my camera deep in /sys/bus/ieee1394/. I saw the kernel recognize it in dmesg and in /var/log/messages. I wrote heaps of udev rules to try and have it make the appropriate devices... They've been commented out since I've got it working. But, each line represents a different try, and I did about 5 permutations of each line before writing a new one. With a reboot between each try, I was pulling my hair out.
Code:
# FireWire drivers
#BUS="ieee1394", SYSFS{name}="DV/1394 Driver", NAME="dv1394"
#BUS="ieee1394", SYSFS{name}="raw1394 Driver", NAME="raw1394"
#BUS="ieee1394", SYSFS{vendor_name_kv}="Panasonic", NAME="dvcam"
#BUS="pci", ID="00:1e.0", SYSFS{model_id}="0x803306", NAME="dvcam"
#SYSFS{model_id}="0x803306", NAME="dvcam"
I did more reading and it looks like udev and raw1394 are still at odds, Mandrake and Gentoo appear to be the first out of the gate with fixes. I'll have to wait a few years, heh heh.

So, I decided to bypass udev and make the devices myself. First I followed the advice from the source of all things linux and 1394. No luck with
Code:
mknod -m 666 /dev/dv1394 c 171 32
(for NTSC). Still got the raw1394 - failed to get handle: No such device errors.

So I looked into modules, how do you get information about them?
Code:
modinfo [name]
Did that with the problem drivers, namely raw1394 and dv1394. This is what I got back:
Code:
localhost:/home/friedrij# modinfo raw1394
filename:       /lib/modules/2.6.9-lac1/kernel/drivers/ieee1394/raw1394.ko

AH! My system uses different minor numbers! (which makes sense since my ieee1394 wasn't set up according to linux1394 files/source - I bought my laptop from LAClinux, and they make custom-tailored kernels to your machine's specific hardware). Remove my bad devices and add some new ones as preferred by my drivers:
Code:
mknod -m 666 /dev/dv1394 c 171 2
mknod -m 666 /dev/raw1394 c 171 0
Sweet. Fire up Kino, and now I can import DV and us the AV/C controls as well! がんばて!

PS: thanks to all you experts out there. I've been googling this forum for a while with weird quirks in my configuration and have always managed to find a solution. ほんとに ありがとう

I still gotta try some of the other ideas posted, but time is short; i just want ther damn thing to work, save me booting into Windows just to transfer data from my camera.
