People who have no idea what they are talking about when it comes to Linux 1394 should not be trusted as an authority in this matter. What is so difficult about creating a group named "raw1394" and assigning group ownership of /dev/raw1394 to it? Then, any user who trusts themselves on their own computer can add themself to the group and not be co-mingled with disk members. BTW, this issue not only affects Kino, but also Ekiga (through vidinput_avc), Coriander, and any up and coming editor using gstreamer such as Pitivi and Diva.

use /dev/video1394, not /dev/raw1394
