D'oh! My bad... The one step I forgot to do was switching to generic the kernel. It was a late night!

Yep I searched and found the posts and other reference info for the kernel stuff.

So now I've plugged in the DV camera and all working in Kino and checked dmesg! My daughter will be so happy now!!!

Thanks for the help.

BTW Am liking Slack a lot, had tried it many, many years ago (circa 1995!) when at uni but had never really taken it further when i was working. Then a few years back came back to try Linux again moving thru various distros (Suse 8, Mandrake and Debians) but wanted to try Slack again... And am quite happy with it! No guru so heaps to learn with Slack. At least it's a rock solid distro with enough of everything I need installed and anything more can be easily had/installed... with some learning!

Changed to generic kernel and that did it.
Many thanks to everyone who took the time to help improve my knowledge.
