Hello David
Thanks for the mail.

Coriander seems to work; my problem is that it does receive 15.625 fps where I can't get more than 11 or so.. I would not  mind but it won't happpen.


I'm a little confused by what you mean. Is coriander actually delivering 15.625 fps or is it just claiming that the rate is 15.625 fps and delivering a lower rate?

Please also try the example command-line programs in the libdc1394/examples/ directory. All of them will probably not work with your camera, but some should.

What is it that you are trying to use coriander for? Is it serving that purpose or is there something you can't do?

You believe the maximum rate supported by the hardware is 11 fps? Can you be more specific about which model of the AVT Marlin you are using?
 
I always get this value whatever the format used
I don't get any debug message after setting dc1394_debug=1


Case matters. Run it like this:

$ DC1394_DEBUG=1 ./coriander

The extra debug messages should appear on the console (not dmesg).
 
This is the only message I get (dmesg)

In my experience, these errors usually mean that the camera is taking too long to respond to certain commands and the driver is timing out. This could explain some of the unusual behavior you are seeing. It is true that the timeout characteristics of the newer firewire drivers may be different from your old system. Stefan would be the expert on that -- perhaps there are some kernel options you could try to lengthen the timeouts.

Some things to try:

- Set DC1394_DEBUG=1 before you launch coriander. This will print extra debugging information that you can send to the list.

- Try running coriander as root to see if that makes a difference.
