Sending a F7 test1 x64 DVD install report.

Install and post install went ok.

On first boot monitor (Hansol 900P) was not found so i had
max resolution of 800x600.
After “yum install system-config-display ” i set monitor manually
and can set resolution to 1600x1200.

On turning printer (Samsung ML 1610 usb) there was a window to select
printer but on ok nothing happened.
After “yum install system-config-printer” it was posible to install
printer manually and is working ok.

to get sound (is there a better way?) tvtime works ok.

I was unable to get sound with gnomeradio (was ok in FC6).

Video camera JVC GR DVL 157E firewire (not working)
lsmod shows
fw_ohci 23432 0

and there is, when i turn camera on

in /dev

but dvgrab is not working:
raw1394 - failed to get handle: No such file or directory.

I understand that it is new firewire stack in 2.6.20 kernels
and it looks ok but what about user programs?

This all on rawhide updated 10.2.2007

kernel 2.6.20-1.2922.fc7 #1 SMP
