Automatic loading of firewire modules and devices


I've managed to get my firewire DV camera working under 2.6.10 but doing so is a pain if i have to do it every time i boot. The steps i need to do are:

modprobe ohci1394
modprobe video1394

mknod -m 666 /dev/raw1394 c 171 0

Only then i can use the camera. Is there any way to get those steps done automatically (anything better than a script on startup?).

Also is there a better DV recorder for KDE than Kino? The interface looks pretty bad under KDE.


Regards,
Andrei

You could
#1: Add those commands to /etc/init.d/local (sometimes called rc.local)

#2: Build support for those into the kernel rather than modules.

#3: Add those modules to /etc/modules.autoload - so you don't have to modprobe
