Hello everybody ! I'm running M-Audio Firewire Solo on my X31 notebook and it works fine on 64Studio 3.0 beta under freebob. Now I need to change this interface to have 2 mic inputs and 4 line outputs. Ideal interface for me seems to be Echo Audiofire4. I'm little confused after reeding this topic http://www.64studio.com/node/586 . Is there anyone who knows for shore if Audiofire4 will work on current 64Studio after installing ffado with my setup ? #arek@64studio:~$ uname -a #Linux 64studio 2.6.29-1-multimedia-686 #1 SMP PREEMPT RT Tue May 26 16:51:11 UTC 2009 i686 #GNU/Linux #arek@64studio:~$ dpkg -l | grep "jackd" #ii jackd 1.9.2-0.64studio2~hardy1 JACK Audio Connection Kit (jackd server bina #arek@64studio:~$ dpkg -l | grep "freebob" #ii libfreebob0 1.0.7-1 FreeBoB API Who know what is version of Ricoch chipset in my X31 ? #lspci -v: 02:00.0 CardBus bridge: Ricoh Co Ltd RL5c476 II (rev aa) Subsystem: IBM Unknown device 0532 Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 168, IRQ 11 Memory at b0000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=4K] Bus: primary=02, secondary=03, subordinate=06, sec-latency=176 Memory window 0: e8000000-ebfff000 (prefetchable) Memory window 1: c4000000-c7fff000 I/O window 0: 00004000-000040ff I/O window 1: 00004400-000044ff 16-bit legacy interface ports at 0001 02:00.1 CardBus bridge: Ricoh Co Ltd RL5c476 II (rev aa) Subsystem: IBM Unknown device 0532 Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 168, IRQ 11 Memory at b1000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=4K] Bus: primary=02, secondary=07, subordinate=07, sec-latency=176 Memory window 0: ec000000-effff000 (prefetchable) Memory window 1: c8000000-cbfff000 I/O window 0: 00004800-000048ff I/O window 1: 00004c00-00004cff 16-bit legacy interface ports at 0001 02:00.2 FireWire (IEEE 1394): Ricoh Co Ltd R5C552 IEEE 1394 Controller (rev 02) (prog-if 10 [OHCI]) Subsystem: IBM Unknown device 0533 Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 64, IRQ 11 Memory at c0201000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=2K] Capabilities: Is it version 2 ? Maybe you can suggest different interface ? Kind regards Arek

Hello So far I didn't found sollution for not working jackd but I want to back to main topic. First I've choose Echo Audiofire4 but now I consider two more interfaces: Edirol FA-66 and Terratec Phase X24. Has anyone good experiences with one of them ? As far as I see on Freebob and Ffado sites both works well. Arek

FFADO

The audiofire4 fully supported by FRFADO, and if freebob works on your system, so should ffado. Install ffado in it, and if the solo keeps working with the ffado driver you should be fine. Try taking your notebook to the store for a test of the interface. Cheers, Quentin

FFADO install

So Quentin: I've checked all dependencies and follow the instruction in README from ffado source dir. It went smoothly (I have output if you want). Then I need to update jackd, wright ? So I follow this instrucktin: http://subversion.ffado.org/wiki/JackForFfado In $ ./configure --prefix=YOUR_PREFIX --with-default-tmpdir=/dev/shm I put /usr for YOUR_PREFIX because if I pass over --prefix it has stopped, needs to overwrite existing jack At the end of the configure phase I have: jack-audio-connection-kit 0.116.2 : | Build with ALSA support............................... : false | Build with old FireWire (FreeBob) support............. : false | Build with new FireWire (FFADO) support............... : true | Build with OSS support................................ : true | Build with Sun audio support.......................... : false | Build with CoreAudio support.......................... : false | Build with PortAudio support.......................... : false | Build with Celt support............................... : false | Build with dynamic buffer size support................ : yes | Compiler optimization flags........................... : -g | Compiler full flags................................... : -I$(top_srcdir)/config -I$(top_srcdir) -I$(top_srcdir) -D_REENTRANT -D_POSIX_PTHREAD_SEMANTICS -Wall -g | Install dir for libjack + backends.................... : ${exec_prefix}/lib/jack | | Default driver backend................................ : "firewire" | Shared memory interface............................... : "System V" | IPC Temporary directory............................... : /dev/shm | Install prefix........................................ : /usr | Default tmp dir....................................... : /dev/shm And now, can you tell me why ALSA support is false ? and why I can't run jackd ? arek@64studio:~$ jackd -d firewire --help jackd: symbol lookup error: jackd: undefined symbol: clock_source Also I can't run freebob anymore. Is it possible that I don't overwrite jack but install another, so ther are two versions ? Can I somehow uninstall it to go back to previous state ? kind regards Arek P.S. sorry for poor english Arek

Hi Quentin Thank you for replay. Allright, I will try to install ffado and see how works FWsolo. Unfortunately I can't take notebook to store because I want to bay audiofire in on-line store from Germany and I'm from Poland. regards Arek
