Thanks for that.  Although it looks impressive, it's a dreadful beast to
tame!  I'm going to have to leave trying to use it until I have a LOT of
time!  First thing it did was to come up with a warning telling me to to
edit /proc/sys/kernel/shmmax to contain a much larger number: the system
doesn't allow that edit in any way shape or form, so I had to edit the
kernel preferences instead.  Then it took a lot of work to get it to
agree that I have a camera plugged into a firewire card.  But so far, I
haven't got the video capture actually to work.  And when I try, the
record facility freezes and I have to shut it down with the terminal or
the system monitor .....   maybe I'll look at it again in a few days,
but for now its back to good old reliable Kino.

Now I've looked at it, I see that there is a lot of proprietary stuff in
it.  It depend on QuickTime and it comes with a lot of proprietary
codecs, so I'm not surprised it is not in the normal repos.
What do you see when you use your Computer? Same old thing?
