    I don't know about Firewire but there is a video editor called Kino: http://www.kinodv.org/. Apparently Kino has fantastic Firewire support: http://software.newsforge.com/articl...31216&from=rss.

    Firewire works fine on the latest Linux (at least it works fine on SuSE-9.3).

    Did you check out the multi-media sub-forum on linuxforums? For example, this thread:
    http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/topic-49108-12.html

    In particular, I listed the apps below. Please try them, and let us know how they work:

    Video Editors

    kino [Kino is a non-linear DV editor for GNU/Linux. Features integration with IEEE 1394 for capture, VTR control, and recording back to the camera. It captures video to disk in AVI format in both type-1 DV and type-2 DV (separate audio stream) encodings]
    http://kino.schirmacher.de/

    Cinelerra [for capturing, compositing, and editing audio and video]
    http://heroinewarrior.com/cinelerra.php3/

    MainActor + other packages [capture, edit and export videos with a computer]
    http://www.mainconcept.com/index_flash.shtml

    KDEnlive [Last update March-2004. A Non-linear editor]

    I don't know if you're needing compositing, but this years Siggraph unveiled that Eyeon is releasing DigitalFusion for Linux.

    I'm in need too, so i'll keep an eye on this thread.

    Another app worth checking out is LiVES:

    Its the only video editor (aside from avidemux) that will open the video files from my Canon S700 digital still camera.
