Comment 14 for bug 152392

I marked this as a udev bug because something has been changed in the permissions system between Feisty and later versions.

In Feisty dv1394 was accessible to Kino (dvgrab) with no user interaction. I assume that this was some kind of 'read only' connection, I think that's part of the point of having dv1394. I don't know exactly what changed but my guess is the udev permissions.

I have also seen in the Kino documentation that for it to search for the presence of dv1394 a flag must be set at compile time. I have not yet had a reply from Mattius Klose (https://edge.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/kino) who I think packaged Kino for Hardy.
