Re: [puredyne] jack fw issues (again)

hey Gusano,

Use Puredyne, my Firebox works fine.

My firebox gave me no end of grief on my old laptop, it wasn't until I learnt that it needs a Texas Instruments firewire 400 chipset (I understand that this also applies to most other fireaudio audio interfaces...so if your laptop has an Agave or Via firewire chipset then, if you have an expresscard slot, get an expresscard.  There are recommendations on the Presonus site, my Startech card works fine.

Assuming you've got all this in order all I had to do was install Puredyne, the least hassle audio distro I've tried, start up your computer with the Expresscard inserted (Puredyne doesn't seem to support plug and play for this)...then...insure you have all the ffado packages installed...

Then insert the bits below in bold into the  /etc/default/rtirq file...the raw1394 part is just because i'm using an expresscard, otherwise ignore

# IRQ thread service names
# (space separated list, from higher to lower priority).
RTIRQ_NAME_LIST="rtc0 raw1394 ohci1394 snd usb i8042"

# On kernel configurations that support it,
# which services should be NOT threaded
# (space separated list).
RTIRQ_NON_THREADED="rtc0 snd raw1394 ohci1394"

this information was thanks to this link
http://www.backports.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1328175

then run ffado-dbus-server
then run ffado-test ListDevices
and it should see your firebox, and give you an idea of which port/node to use (for me this is port 1 node 1,

then start qjackctl and in the settings put your port/node
(for me this is hw:1,1)

and then work out what settings will run and start jack,
if you have a stable blue light you're on your way

hope this helps

Hamish

Re: [puredyne] jack fw issues (again)

hi Hamish

thanks for your help.
I have a Texas Instruments pc card bus controller where I use a
pcmcia/FW card (I don't have any expresscard slot).
my only trouble is that it stopped working with last p:d release..

but now that I found out that with a certain kernel/libffado it's
working, I'm gonna (try to) find a way to have those in pure:dyne.. or
maybe just the new FW stack first..

anyway my hardware lost compatibility with c&c


cheers,
_y

reminder: If you can find out which libffado works for you, we could try
to backport it in the Puredyne PPA.

Re: [puredyne] jack fw issues (again)

hi aymeric

that would be awesome !
here is the only config where I got it working so far:

-libffado 2.0.0.1
-jackd 0.118+svn3796
-jackd-firewire 0.118+svn3796
-kernel 2.6.32-22.33

considering what they say on ffado.org, the new firewire stack would
work only with kernel >=2.6.32 though..

cheers,
_y

ooch ... that's a bit more tricky than I thought then,... I did not know
you need a newer kernel...

Anybody tried to backport a kernel package via a PPA?

Otherwise, you could always installed Puredyne 9.11, then do a full
install and either upgrade to Lucid or do some pinning karmic/Lucid to
select only a few more recent packages.
