Hi A friend has just lent me this card for a few days to try out... Im new to debian, and Ive just noticed that this card isnt supported in the kernel. http://wiki.debian.org/KernelFirmwareLicensing#head-e6d5ea624ed4bc326828b4b43a9ce43ce4a672d3 I tried plugging into my arch linux and dmesg told me I needed firmware. 64 studio only recognises the card as a usb hub, so Im presuming the 64 studio kernel doesnt have it either. Is there any where I can download a package for the module, or will i have to compile the source/kernel. thanks $ lsusb Bus 002 Device 006: ID 086a:0110 Emagic Soft-und Hardware GmbH Bus 002 Device 005: ID 0451:2036 Texas Instruments, Inc.

It's found in the alsa-firmware package. $ sudo apt-get install alsa-firmware When done, the firmware should be found in /lib/firmware/emagic $ ls /lib/firmware/emagic/emi62* /lib/firmware/emagic/emi62-bitstream.bin /lib/firmware/emagic/emi62-firmware.bin /lib/firmware/emagic/emi62-firmware-midi.bin /lib/firmware/emagic/emi62-firmware-spdif.bin /lib/firmware/emagic/emi62-loader.bin Post back if that doesn't work. Hope this helps!
