I've recently built a new Athlon64-based PC. It has an Echo MIA digital
audio card (and is VERY fast!). I'm using it as a digital audio
workstation with WinXP and Sonar, but would like to try Ardour. I am
fairly Linux-proficient and have built, installed, and configured many
applications under RHL.
Can use the 64-bit capability of my new computer with Suse 9.1 and Ardour?
Echo does not publish Linux drivers on their website, but I read
somewhere that the card is "fully supported" by Ardour. Also, how would
such a driver work under 64-bit Suse 9.1? Could you just recompile it?
I don't understand how this works. Do I have to locate a pre-built 64-bit
Linux driver for that exact card before successuflly installing? Does
Suse 9.1 / 64 support 32-bit audio device drivers? What is the trick, or
is this currently impossible?
Please also copy replies to my address below, so I don't miss them.
Thanks a lot!
