For the brave...

AMD64 2.6.29 rt8 kernel with 32bit emulation, Original firewire stack for video cameras and FFADO sound, and plenty of modules to go around. WiFi modules included.

Check it out, and let me know. You might have to uninstall the alsa-firmware package to be able to install this kernel...
Be sure to keep the original kernel installed as a backup. Feedback appreciated.

Do you need to compile Jack again? Is the one that is shipped with 64 Studio not FFADO compliant? If you do need to install jack again, you have to remove the old one.

Re-install jack?

I don't know if I need to compile Jack again or not. I tried this command. thomas@64studio:~$ jackd -R -d firewire -v4 jackdmp: unknown driver 'firewire' I also tried starting from the gui. Both with the freebob and the firewire option installed. Neither started successfully. When I run gscanbus my audio interface (presonus firebox) does show up as connected to the computer. Thanks tb

Trying to get FFADO/JACK working ======================== FFADO -------- * After a clean install of 64studio I tried to install new kernel but it failed because of alsa-firmware. * Removed alsa-firmware and installed new kernel and headers. (THANKS Q!!) * Rebooted with new kernel * Get ffado dependencies - followed directions from (http://subversion.ffado.org/wiki/Dependencies/Ubuntu). $sudo apt-get build-dep libfreebob $sudo apt-get install subversion libiec61883-0 libiec61883-dev libavc1394-0 libavc1394-dev libxml++2.6c2a libxml++2.6-dev liblo0 liblo0-dev docbook-utils libtool autoconf automake1.7 automake1.8 automake1.9 gcc g++ libc6-dev libdbus-1-dev libexpat1-dev libqt3-mt-dev pyqt-tools python-qt3 python-dbus python-qt-dev python-qt4-dbus python-qt4-dev scons libexpat-dev pyqt-tools python-dbus python-qt3 *cd /usr/src/ * Download FFADO from svn trunk $ svn checkout http://subversion.ffado.org/ffado/trunk ffado-svn * $ cd ffado-svn/libffado * $ sudo scons * $ sudo scons install JACK ------ * $ cd /usr/src/ * $ svn co http://subversion.jackaudio.org/jack/trunk/jack jack * $ cd jack $ ./autogen.sh $ ./configure Here's where I run into the problem --------------------------------------------- The return from command ./configure is: root@64studio:/usr/src/jack# ./configure checking existing, conflicting JACK installs... !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You appear to have at least one existing installation of JACK. Complete or partial JACK installs exist in: /usr/lib Installing this version will leave at least one of these existing installations installed and this will probably break JACK on your machine. Before building, you should first remove the existing JACK installation(s). Alternatively use ./configure --prefix=... to force overwriting the existing install. WARNING: ON ANY DEBIAN-DERIVED DISTRIBUTION (Debian, Ubuntu etc) CHANGING THE INSTALLATION PREFIX WILL NOT PRODUCE A WORKING JACK INSTALL. Please contact the distribution packager for JACK and ask them to fix their packaging. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Any ideas? ======= I was going to try the --prefix= option but I see that this error message says that --prefix= will not work with debian-derived distros. Why is this? How can I proceed?

Hi Quentin, I don't want to diverse from the 64bit theme here. I used your .config and built i386 version. Great work Quentin:) working very nice here. Cheers! Dave.
