don;t know if Kaffeine will work, but you can play through Kino. You may also dump the files into your computer using Kino and do minor editing. It is on the Suse CD, but an updated version is available here:

http://packman.links2linux.org/?action=367
be sure to also get the dependencies at the bottom of the page.
Post back if you need anymore help.

any time

make sure you've got the 1394 drivers installed, also dvgrab. These are all on the CD too. Yast may do an online update of these, but i don't know if they'll be as up to date as the ones at the packman site. Yast is good, but it doesnt always have the most current versions of software.

grab this too:

http://packman.links2linux.org/?action=304

Also, check out this link. This is the "Requirements" section at the homepage for Kino. Maybe you can spot something you didn't install.

http://kino.schirmacher.de/article/static/3

Keep me posted, i can check mine out when i get home form work.

later,

just out of curiosity, have you hooked your camera in yet? Have you checked your hardware manager to verify that the firewire card is showing?

what is the make and model of your firewire card? Shouldnt really matter, but just in case. In the meantime, i'll do some searching on hardware detection and setup. You might just try going through the hardware "thing" in Yast and see if you have to do some additonal setup to get that card funtioning.

i'm sorry, not the cables, but the card itself. Or is the firewire port built into the motherboard? If so, please provide the model of the motherbaord.

I'll be heading home in a few hours, i'll see if i can find something. Google is coming up empty handed today
