FREEBOB trouble in RAW1394 land.

Help, I had this release running flawlessly..... I run an Intel C2D 1.8 with 2G Ram, SATA 350G, Presonus Firepod, Terratec EWS88MT. ETC... I have installed 64 and XP on one drive. My problem is that I can not get my fire pod to set up on 64... It worked before XP, and I know the easy answer is to remove XP and just run 64.... However I need MS office tools for my "real job"... When I try to run any of the suggested commands from the Freebob Website I find errors, most notably is in the modprobe RAW1394 were I get a 64studio:~# modprobe raw1394 FATAL: Module raw1394 not found. 64studio:~# also nothing shows up in the general modprobe command for ieee1394 I tried to run various commands to obtain raw1394 but failed. I also tried to runa kernal update but could not figure out how to install the one I wanted. Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks.

with FFADO. This is a completer rewrite of the software, and will not only support BeBob devices, but many other firewire sound interfaces. Check out this post for an interesting tip on getting it going: http://blog.johnjrussell.com/2007/01/presonus-firepod-linux-ieee1394-jackd.html Cheers,

Development Stalled

I just checked on the DEV site and the development of this thing is compeltely stalled. I think we should look into creating a Petition to bring things back.

try a thing ;-)

hey, Can you add your user account to the "disk" group ? command line : adduser disk (as root or with sudo) then, restart the system and try again. Toine

Dumped it.

Hi, thank you all for the insight. I reconfigured my system by adding a seperate SATA drive for Windows. Once I reinstalled 64studio the firepod connected first try. I think I may have inadvertanly upgraded to kernel 2.6.22 which I have heard has some issues with IEEE1394 drivers. I am now back to 2.6.21. Thanks again,

can you check that

hi, i was using ubuntu gutsy (7.10) but had some problem with the firepod (glitches after 2 minutes). i just installed 64studio last night and the firepod is working out-of-the-box! really stable, i am quite happy. start 64studio, without connecting the firepod. open a terminal, connect the firepod and turn it on. type dmesg you see something like ieee node connected etc... wait a bit (10 sec. so the node get connected). then type: jackd -dfreebob the light should turn blue. now you can use qjackctl to connect things together (ardour). of course you should take a look at the options of freebob. mainly -p -n and -dhw:1,2,3,4 -p is period, i need low latency so i put 128, -n 2 (freebob is saying -n should be set to 3... anyway). -d is your device, if you have more then 1 audio card... maybe try different hw:x. after each try, turn off your firepod and reconnect it waiting another 10 sec. sorry for my english pat

Here is the output from your suggestion.
