Hi all,
I'm trying to follow instructions from BK's blog about minidv firewire interfacing but I'm a bit confused, The last post from this page http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=02761 from smil99, I'm able to follow most of it, but part 4 where smil99 says "fw0 already exists in /dev but didn't work with dvgrab so inside the /dev folder, I created a symlink fw1 to raw1394" the thing I don't understand is did smil99 create fw1? and if so how? mknod /dev/fw1? I know that the ln -s command will create a simlink but there's no point in making a simlink to something that doesn't exist right?

So er... it would seem as though I was being too methodical. I skipped the last step from the smil99 post and just tried dvgrab, surprise surprise it works great. Cool
