I've been talking with the Fedora juju maintaner. Unfortunately the
new juju subsystem breaks a lot of applications: the libraw1394
patches are still not upstream and dependent software like libdc1934
(v1) breaks on it. libdc1934 v2 does support juju, but is still
unreleased. And ffmpeg and all ffmpeg copies in other software
packages need libdc1934 v1.

So all in all the new ieee1394 stack is quite fresh and in order to
keep the apps hapy one unfortunately needs to go back to the old
one. Once juju is part of a releaed vanilla kernel, upstream projects
will probably move faster to supporting it, so at F8 time this will
all be moot, but for F7 backing out juju seems to be the only real

To be fair the Fedora maintainer did promise to provide patches for
libdc1934 v1 and ffmpeg, which would solve all issues, but he seems to
be swamped in work.

FWIW after waiting for 2 months and pining the juju maintainer I had
to do the same in ATrpms and notified him, so he's aware of any
non-juju reportings in F7.

Fedora is leading edge and moving fast. How about PlanetCCRMA for
RHEL? :) :) :)
