SOLVED: Asus M51VA: Firewire not detected

Fixed my inability to use firewire by doing a

sudo chmod o+rw /dev/fw0

If others suffer the same problem, the above command should fix it..

Original msg:

Although enabled in BIOS, the laptop's firewire port is not detected. I installed KINO and all the 1394 related tools via YUM, when the camera is plugged in and turned on, nothing happens in /var/log/messages, and dmesg|grep 1394 shows nothing..
