Please, please help me getting my Firewire soundcard to work!!!
Hi all, first off, thanks for even viewing my thread, I'm at my wits end and desperate to hear sound on my computer, I need it for all sorts of work.
So, I had Ubuntu years ago, and Gentoo before that. I have had the Firepod the entire time, and in no distribution was I able to get it working, this Backtrack is the furthest I've come.
I have installed the Freebob drivers. I ran and and . Compile and make install worked fine, but make gave me some errors. However those errors 'went away' when I used make install (ie, it seemed to work properly).
When I use qjackctl, and select Freebob as my driver (I select default interface, or hw:0), my Firepod light turns from red, to blue, indicating that it has been recognized. You would think it would be working from here on out, but no, I am not able to get any sound. I have been reading and I understand that there are some ways to even use your Firepod for more than just audio production, and you can play MP3s with it, by routing it through ALSA or something similar, but first things first, I would like to get SOME sound.
If you could help me at all, I would appreciate it. I recently screwed up my Windows partitions losing years of audio work, and now I am stuck without being able to have any sound at all, and I'm dying! I don't think I can adequately explain how much in your debt I would be if I was to get this working.
