I know that this is a very old piece of kit. However, the beauty of linux is being able to use old hardware. I essentially want to use the midi connector on the TB Pinnacle so that a midi keyboard can be used with Rosegarden - we are not looking at resource intensive stuff here, and as I have an old box with ISA slots it would be great to make use of the TB Pinnacle. From searching the net there appears to be basic drivers available for 2.2 and 2.4 kernels but no mention of the 2.6 kernel. I have installed 64 Studio but the TBP is not visible and I cannot get it working. Does anyone know if there is a way of breathing life into this old card or am I wasting my time? Thanks.

Finding the card?

I was going to suggest running lspci in a terminal windows, but I am not sure that it will recognize an ISA card. You might also try running alsaconf as root in a terminal window, and see if it finds and configures the card.
