full ack, but ATM I don't think we should allow access to /dev/raw1394 in a default installation, it's just too dangerous. The easiest way to make it work locally is to change 40-permissions.rules (change the group for 'raw1394' from 'disk' to 'video' or 'plugdev'). 

I know that this sucks, but I'm afraid there is no sane short-term solution :(
use /dev/video1394, not /dev/raw1394
