RME is not a linux friendly company as I gather it(not directly hostile
either). I don't think they made any drivers for linux, Paul and others
made them. Recent hardware from RME using Firewire is not and will never
be supported unless they change their policy and *allow* some third
party developer make a driver for linux. (se freebob projects comments
about this). 

However the cards that are supported are very nice, some day I'll buy

Now Im using a Delta 1010LT.
