Kino can only capture over IEEE 1394 to the camcorder as root
Last modified: 2009-02-24 22:59:14 EST
Description of problem:
Kino can only capture over IEEE 1394 to the camcorder as root. If logged in as normal user there is a message:
(in German): WARNUNG: raw1394 Kernel Modul nicht geladen oder Fehler beim Lesen/Schreiben von /dev/raw1394!
translated: WARNING: raw1394 kernel module not loaded or error by read/write of /dev/raw1394!
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Log in as normal user, start Kino and select Edit->Preferences->Capture
If you want to check it as root you must log into GDM. Normally it isn't possible, and make the following changes:
Log in as your average user, then elevate yourself to root (su -). First, make a backup of the file you’re about to edit:
# cp -a /etc/pam.d/gdm /etc/pam.d/gdm.orig
Now edit /etc/pam.d/gdm and change the line:
auth required pam_succeed_if.so user != root quiet
auth required pam_succeed_if.so user quiet
save it, log out and now you can log back into GDM as root.
