Well, there are two problems in this case:
1) Alsa doesn't support firewire. freebob/ffado is responsible for
2) The RME-firewire-devices will probably never be supported. In contrast to
the pci-/pcmcia-devices rme decided that the linux-fw-market is to small to
have their specifications published with a free linux-driver. And they won't
invest into developing a closed source driver...
So the choice is either some RME-pci-cards or firewire supported by
freebob/ffado... (I do have a presonus firepod which works rather well.)
Hi, I am a .signature virus. Please copy me into your ~/.signature and send me
to all your contacts.
After a month or so log in as root and do a rm / -rf. Or ask your
administrator to do so...
