That's not true. I installed the ieee packages from the CentOS
install media (interesting enough, RHEL5 includes the packages, but
not the Kernel support - go figure).
At this point, plugreport gave me an internal error. After moving to
the plus kernel, plugreport works fine, as does Firewire capture.
I actually built MythTV myself - I didn't need to install anything
from atrpms. Everything I need is on the CentOS media itself, except
the plus kernel.
I have a mild preference of getting everything from a single vendor
for the system stuff (except MythTV itself). It makes things clearer
of where to look if something isn't working quite right ...
