Simpler question. Does anyone have a Firewire
camera working for motion? If so, please tell
me what the /dev/.
Thanks, ... Peter E.

hey peter -
saw your first one, but i have no firewire cams to compare.
strikes me that raw may be the wrong device to be using.
why don't you see if some other devices show up for that cam. one way
to do it is:
- unplug the cam. and leave it unplugged for a while.
- ls -R /dev > /tmp/before
- plug in the cam and wait a few secs.
- ls -R /dev > /tmp/after
- diff /tmp/before /tmp/after
and see what shows up when the cam's plugged in. most cams should show
up as /dev/video*, i'd think.
you might also want to look at syslog for when the cam's plugged in and
see if it mentions anything interesting.

You could also use:
$ sudo udevadm monitor
to similar effect.
