Once I'm booted up I do:
lsmod | grep raw1394
It shows nothing has been loaded.
I turn on the interface, then plug into firewire and do:
lsmod | grep raw1394
It shows nothing has been loaded
I 'su root' and do:
'lsmod | grep raw1394' reveals:
raw1394 24008 0
I turn on the interface and 'cat /proc/asound/cards' doesn't reveal any
mention of this interface.
Is the interface supposed to show up in the 'cat /proc/asound/cards' output?

Yeah, tried this several times and will keep trying again.

Yeah, I do that. In QJackCtl's (Interface) dropdown I see different
listings. What should I be seeing if this interface was actually reconized?

Just to keep things simple, I did:
jackd -d firewire
It did start up and the interface suddenly responded with the "quick
flashing" power light, so something happened. The interface "acts" like
it's been reconized, but 'cat /proc/asound/cards' doesn't show anything
relating to this interface.
Don't know if this is important, but jackd outputs the continous message:
JackAudioDriver::ProcessAsync: read error, skip cycle
I tried to record something with ecasound, but
*_I_have_to_go_to_an_important_meeting_* (darn!!!, just as something was
I will resume were I was when I get back from my meeting. Meanwhile,
should I be seeing the interface in 'cat /proc/asound/cards' output?
