Well, until you start reading the forum rules and posting useful info about what your trying to do, what your using to do it with and what the versions of everything that your trying to use is...

Stop using dvgrab?

Sorry for my posting. I use this configuration:

Suse 9.2; Kernel: 2.6.8-24.10-default; KDE 3.3.2; Hardware: Laptop Acer Aspire 1703SM

I would like to capture videos from my camcorder over firewire.

It's a Panasonic NV-GS400.

Thank you for your help.

Me too! ieee1394 and DV camera problems...

(yes, what a horrible, horrible way for my first post here to start..)

Okay,

On this particular machine, I am running SuSE professional 9.2 with kernel 2.6.8-24.10-default

This particular (number three now... I will be happy to expand later) FireWire card is a Belkin F5U503-APL and I am trying to get my Sony DCR-TRV33 to work with dvgrab/Kino.

This card (unlike the other two) actually appears to work with this kernel at least as far as SBP2 goes. I can hotplug my external FW hard disk (generic enclosure with a WD IDE drive) and mount it without problem. Same goes for unmounting/disconnecting/reconnecting/etc.

From trawling the suse forums, it seems getting a dv camcorder to be seen by an application is a disturbingly common problem. Yes, I do have ohci1394, ieee1394, raw1394, dv1394 and video1394 all loaded. I have even tried without dv1394 and video1394 loaded, just in case.

Probably the most irritating thing for me is that I can not see any kind of event when I connect the sony. The syslog shows when the disk is connected, but shows nothing for the camera (I assume that you are not seeing any kind of event when you plug in your camera either).

So other than asking "Can you make my DV camera work" I will also ask that _anyone_ who has a DV camera running with SuSE chime in with _how_ they got it to work. I have had my share of WorksForMe responses from the SuSE forum.

Oh, and GeorgK, your syslog entries show that the ieee1394 module is not happy with your card. If you could run the command:

lspci | grep FireWire

you will see the chipset that the card uses. You can then look that up at http://linux1394.org to see if your card at least _should_ work. If the situation looks promising, keep trying, otherwise, find another card on the compatibility list.

Mine shows this:

0000:00:0d.0 FireWire (IEEE 1394): Texas Instruments TSB43AB23 IEEE-1394a-2000 Controller (PHY/Link)

and when I look up TSB43AB23 at linux1394.org I am shown that this chipset (and this card in particular) "WorksGreat" for a number of people, so it is a good canidate to actually work in my configuration.

Thanks,
John

You can get a new test-kernel from:

http://nectar.math.uni-bielefeld.de/...day/i386/HEAD/

I compiled a new kernel 2.6.10. Now firewire and dvgrab work fine :-))

Thanks! This looks promising. I am downloading a new kernel now.

Looks like a mirror of

ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/people/kraxel/kernel-of-the-day/

For posterity - from his readme:

Code:
what you can fine here
======================

updates and experimental packages for some stuff I'm developing and
maintaining, mostly video4linux related.  packages for xawtv 4.x
snapshots for example.


install stuff using yast2
=========================

The directories can be used as yast2 installation source, i.e. you
can add them via "yast2 inst_source" and the yast2 package manager
will know these packages then.

BTW: Starting with SUSE Linux 9.1 there is a nice command line
interface to the yast2 package manager called "y2pmsh", check it
out.

If you want to create such installation sources yourself have a
look at http://portal.suse.com/sdb/en/2004/02/yast_instsrc.html

Have fun,

  Gerd

I am going to see if the pre-compiled one works too. If so, a quick search of the src rpms should show what options are set for FireWire to work. If I can get the "stock" kernel working with my camera by recompiling with those options, then I will file a bug with SuSE and Gerd, and ask them to include it in the next kernel patch. Who knows, someone might actually listen.

Stay tuned!

I think that the original kernel from Suse is really buggy.

Make your own.
