Ok now I understand Excuse me , but sometime I don't understand your terms cause I'm speak & write in english at school level and I have few occasions to speak & write, please have patience with me. I have read on ffado the list of compatiblity level of many firewire audio card work on Linux by ffado drivers. Some card PCI example yous M-Audio M66 and Delta 101LT work wel on Linux as you tell , but it's not always the same for USB and Firewire hardware. I would put on evidence the total compatibility of Midi Keyboard Behringher U-Control UMX49 ( plus audio card usb ) with LInux system as I read on February number of italian magazine "Linux MAgazine" . If anyone has also notice about any device not only audio card it would be good idea post about in forum bye

HCL stands for "Hardware Compatablility List". We have one at the opensuse.org wiki for all kinds of computer hardware, from individual cards and chipsets to complete systems. Folks basically post there hardware and how well it works (or doesn't) with openSUSE, and what issues to expect. I have seen other HCLs for (I think) Ubuntu and Fedora, so I assumed every linux distro had one and everyone knew what "HCL" meant. I gues I was wrong. Sorry about that! The M-Audio Delta is PCI device. The Behringer U-Control is USB.

Databe most popular LInux sound card

Yes zak89 you're right, but I don't know what's you mean for "HCL" is it a database ? The sound you used are pci or usb or firewire connection ? Bye

Makes Sense...

I think madforthenet meant to do was to have a sort of "HCL" for various sound cards that members are using, not asking for advise on a specific card for purchasing. Am I right? In that case... Great results with an M-Audio Delta 66. I am also awaiting the arrival of a Behringer U-Control UCA202, which I plan to connect to a Behringer mixing board via RCA. However, both these cards are notorious for linux compatibility, so my success doesn't mean that much; it was all plug and play.

Can't get my M-Audio Delta66 to work.

Hi zak89, Would you be so kind to let me know your settings for the Delta66 card. Mine is one with Rev.E and it only shows up when you select model=delta1010lt for the board. The Envy24 Control shows 8 HW in channels, 8 PCM out. the 2 SPDIF in/outs and 8DAC +8ADC on the analog tab. I doubt if this is correct. Anyway, selecting model=delta66 prevent the driver from loading at boot. There's no signal at all, while on openSuse 11.1 (dual boot) the Envy24Control shows signals when playing audio. Thanks in advance, Ellio

Sorry !

Quentin I'm sorry for this post, but I don't want to write a doble post I have think that would be good to create a "database" of sound-card used by members of forum that work ok on 64Studio and on Linux in general . I hope is possible to create this list by help of members. bye

See my post
