Re: raw1394 issue


so....solution is NOT upgrade.....dan kennedy (from kino/dvgrab) told us no way
to have new firewire stack working with these tools in a short time.....

maybe consider to wait to implement the new firewire stack or, at least give an
alternative (as, for example 2.6.22-rt ubuntu)?

Gonna think to about it......
