Hi again,

If your camcorder connects to the computer through firewire, there is
one caution: kino may not be able to see the firewire port under
CentOS.  More details are in this forum thread:


In there, I (toracat) admit that my workstation that handles our
camcorder is still running FC6.  This was for other reasons, but now
that I know kino does not work on CentOS (with its firewire support),
I cannot make the switch.

Just wanted to give you some heads up.
