intrepid, and I'm trying to run Kino.
I'm getting a lot of flickering (dropped frames?) and the Kino site suggests
setting dma mode to 1 using this command:
# hdparm -d1 /dev/sda
setting using_dma to 1 (on)
HDIO_SET_DMA failed: Inappropriate ioctl for device
HDIO_GET_DMA failed: Inappropriate ioctl for device
Does anyone have any suggestions either:
how to set dma, or if it's a good idea?
how to stop Kino capture from flickering?
