video capture problem


Hello all!

I have a problem when trying to capture video from my web cam. I have the files raw1394 and video1394
Code:
$ ls /dev/ | grep 1394
raw1394
video1394
but the modules are not loaded (I guess)

Code:
$ /sbin/lsmod | grep 1394
$
I am also trying to capture video from kino but i can't. Is there a wasy to do something without having to compile a kernel and installing it?

Thanx to all
axelmangr

I assume from your post that your webcam is a Firewire IEE1394 device. You may need to modprobe the following modules, which are probably already compiled for you by your distro:

ieee1394
raw1394
ohci1394

If you want to automatically load these modules, I believe in Red Hat you need to edit your /etc/modules.conf file (DISCLAIMER: I don't use Red Hat; Debian and Slackware have different module config files)
