ieee1394: /dev/raw1394 device node missing
 
Hi,

I'm hoping to grab some footage off a DV camcorder. Using Mandrake 10.0, on two machines both fitted with ieee1394 cards, the /dev/raw1394 device node is missing - in spite of the fact that I seem to have the 1394 drivers installed:

Code:

[root@study kevin]# lsmod | grep 1394
ohci1394              33956  0
ieee1394              287856  1 ohci1394

So if I try and run Kino, it complains that the 'ieee1394 subsystem is down..'

Am I missing something obvious here? I seem to vaguely remember that 1394 worked just fine when I used SuSE 9...

TIA

Kevin.

You need to

modprobe raw1394

and the device node _should_ be created. Getting it to work with Kino/dvgrab is another story, see:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=273058

for my current situation. It will either "just work" for you, or dvgrab will tell you "no camera exists".

BTW, which DV cam do you have?

Cheers!
John

hi,

thanks for the advice - well, loading the raw1394 module did indeed create the device node, excellent...

unfortunately, still can't get kino to capture - i've checked permissons on the device node and all appears to be in order. strange. i'll keep playing with it while i still have the camera (borrowed from my brother-in-law - it's a Canon, not sure of the exact model, but it's fairly recent)

anyway, thanks for the help - at least i know now why the device node was missing!

if i get any further i'll post back, but i think i'll have to be giving the camera back later today, so i might not get it solved this time around...

cheers.

Dunno if this helps but the cover story on the Dec 2004 issue of Linux Journal covered how to set up Kino and make movies. It may be worth a read if you have not already done so. Good luck with it. -- J.W.

Thanks janic for that great link. I checked on it, actually got the same issue with my camcorder. But, I was too late to come across this forum. Had it repaired and checked by a specialist yesterday.
