[mythtv-users] Firewire problems on FC4

I don't think that it is a problem with the 2.6.13 kernel. Since I was
having trouble performing a full yum upgrade on the FC4, I installed the
"newest" distro that I could find, SUSE 10. I am having several video
problems, but was able to successfully compile myth against with the
2.6.13 kernel. I was able to see the channel change via firewire and
then X crashed. Anyway, the 2.6.13 kernel appeared to work with
Anyway, looking at the configure file for MythTV there are only a couple
requirements (Libiec61883 and libraw1394, if I remember correctlyt) to
have firewire support compiled in. My feeling is that the ATRPM compile
changed and didn't pick up the firewire stuff. I am fairly confident
that the myth version I had working with Firewire was 112.
Anyone out there have Myth 113/114 from atrpms have firewire working?

I just rebuilt my mythbox after an HD crash, and I'm running into the
same problem. Anyone fixed it? I suspect its perhaps an
incompatibility with kernel 2.6.13? I'm pretty sure its the same myth
binary that worked with firewire before, so I suspect that re-compiling
will not solve the problem (though I haven't had the time to try).
Anyone else running into this?

I am trying to get Myth working with firewire. I followed the mythical
Jarod guide for the most part (I didn't upgrade everything, full upgrade
choked) and just can't seem to get this working. When the 0.18.113 or
0.18.114 backend is started I get the following error:
2005-10-09 22:11:10.982 ERROR: FireWire Input configured, but MythTV was

or remove the card from configuration and restart MythTV.
Other info that may be of use:
Kernel -- kernel-smp.x86_64 2.6.13-1.1526_FC4
Myth -- mythtv-backend.x86_64 0.18.1-113.rhfc4.at
Libraw --- libraw1394.x86_64 1.2.0-1_6.rhfc4.at
I had a proof of concept setup working a couple weeks ago based on a
2.6.12 kernel Short of recompiling, is there any easy fix you guys can
