I don't use CentOS on workstations and laptops, only on servers. :-)
Sounds like the FireWire stack (kernel + libraries) in CentOS is
seriously broken. In the past, I used to have minor issues with FireWire
under old Fedora versions (like, FC3 or so), but all that stuff could be
fixed by manually loading a module or creating a /dev node. Looks like
that's not the case on CentOS. :-(
Under these circumstances, I would avoid using CentOS on systems where I
need to transfer video over FireWire, and it all needs to function
It may start working with a different kernel and/or a different libraw1394.
But honestly, I have no real clue. Sorry. :-/
