Hello, I just tried first time my RME audio card and I am not able to start jack with it. I see audio signal going in on HDSP mixer utility. Jack's message box giving this output: 08:18:49.063 Patchbay deactivated. 08:18:49.111 Statistics reset. 08:18:49.162 Startup script... 08:18:49.162 artsshell -q terminate JACK tmpdir identified as [/dev/shm] JACK tmpdir identified as [/dev/shm] 08:18:49.181 MIDI connection graph change. can't create mcop directory Creating link /root/.kde/socket-64studio. 08:18:49.418 Startup script terminated with exit status=256. 08:18:49.418 JACK is starting... 08:18:49.418 /usr/bin/jackd -R -dalsa -r48000 -p512 -n3 -D -Chw:1,0 -Phw:1,0 -i8 -o8 08:18:49.428 JACK was started with PID=28694 (0x7016). jackd 0.103.0 Copyright 2001-2005 Paul Davis and others. jackd comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it under certain conditions; see the file COPYING for details JACK compiled with System V SHM support. loading driver .. apparent rate = 48000 creating alsa driver ... hw:1,0|hw:1,0|512|3|48000|8|8|nomon|swmeter|-|32bit control device hw:1 configuring for 48000Hz, period = 512 frames, buffer = 3 periods ALSA: final selected sample format for capture: 32bit little-endian ALSA: cannot set channel count to 8 for capture ALSA: cannot configure capture channel cannot load driver module alsa no message buffer overruns 08:18:49.456 JACK was stopped successfully. 08:18:49.456 Post-shutdown script... 08:18:49.456 killall jackd jackd: no process killed 08:18:49.628 MIDI connection change. 08:18:49.664 Post-shutdown script terminated with exit status=256. 08:18:51.643 Could not connect to JACK server as client.

I already solved this... There was problem in setup of Jack. There must be all input/output enabled and Totalmix started. It was new for me I used this card under Windows and it is a little bit different. mirami Asus M6Va,CPU 2GHz, RAM 2GB, 64studio 32bit 2.1 pre11

Your Asus laptop has an onboard sound chip (Intel HDA). Can you disable it in the BIOS? If you can - do it and try again. Also a listing from lspci would help as to which alsa module your kernel is using. I'm not familiar with firewire interfaces but aren't those made by RME quite well supported?
