&gt;         Hi,<br />=0D
&gt;         <br />=0D
&gt;         I'm trying to get a Yamaha i88x to work with Linux.<br />=0D
&gt;         I've currently got FC3 with planetccrma installed (kernel<br /=
&gt;         2.6.11 w/ the realtime patch).<br />&gt;{edit}<br />=0D
&gt;<br />=0D
The packages are:<br />=0D
  apt-get install libraw1394 libraw1394-devel<br />=0D
(you will need the later to build things that depend on libraw1394 -<br />=
that's the library, not the kernel driver)<br />=0D
<br />=0D
You also have to load the module when you want to use it (should be<br />=
already part of the kernel), that should be:<br />=0D
  /sbin/modprobe raw1394<br />=0D
<br />=0D
But that will (probably) not create the /dev entry, you'lll have to do<br /=
that by hand. <br />=0D
<br />=0D
This what I think should be the entry:<br />=0D
crw------- 1 root root 171, 0 Nov 25 18:20 /dev/raw1394<br />=0D
(&quot;man mknod&quot; to see how to create it)<br />=0D
Something like:<br />=0D
  mknod /dev/raw1394 c 171 0<br />=0D
(but I'm not sure about this...)<br />=0D
<br />=0D
&gt;         Also, to compile the driver, I need the location of the<br />=
&gt;         alsa-driver sources and my kernel sources which I can't find.<=
br />=0D
<br />=0D
I think the headers are included in the kernel package. Fc3 is rather<br />=
old so I don't quite remember (and I don't have a fc3 machine to test).<br =
They should be in:<br />=0D
   /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build<br />=0D
<br />=0D
If that is not enough (depends on the driver) you may need to get the<br />=
source rpm for the kernel you have and unpack it and rebuild it to the<br /=
point where you have complete patched kernel source tree available.<br />=
Maybe tomorrow I can try to help more, I gotta go now....<br />=0D
