JACKD and firewire
« on: June 24, 2011, 02:02:40 PM »
Hi,

I'm trying to run jackd and firewire:
$ jackd -d firewire -r 44100
I get the following:
Unknown driver "firewire".
I know it should support it as I've managed to get this done on top of Fedora 15.
Problem is Fedora is too heavy and this platform looks like to ideal one.

Anyone?

Lior./

Hi liorms

Call up AppBrowser and enter  firewire  in the search box, maybe one of those extensions will help.

Installed all of them before.
Now I've also added the DEV librarys - nothing helps...

Any other idea?

(*) maybe I need to change a kernel to RT / firewire -> can you tell me how to do this?

Hi liorms

DEV's are only needed when compling.
I think the RT version is for the realtime kernel, you should not need that.

It's probably objecting to the name  firewire. Check those extensions using AppBrowser. The tab
labeled  files  tells you the names of the included files. It may be something like  firewire-core or
firewire-net  depending on what you are trying to do.

I have not used either package so I can't tell you much more.

it's possible that jack.tcz was built without firewire support (compared to the fedora one). firewire-2.6.33.3-tinycore.tcz should give you firewire support in standard tinycore... however it is no dep of jack, so I'm not sure that jack supports it.

I'm sorry. I planned to provide and used to provide on tc 2.x a jack-ffado extension, but although people tell me it should work I never actually got the new firewire stack working. I tried it at least three times, but it was never stable enough for me to use. If there is interest I could provide jack-ffado together with a firewire-legeacy extension, but it's probably more straightforward to use an ubuntustudio rt legacy-firewire kernel (I haven't watched what they currently offer, but iirc that's what some friends of me use).

Hi,

I've tried also Ubuntustudio and it's not working.
I'm trying to connect it to a specific DAC. And I know the requirement is to use the LATEST FFADO driver, which includes fixes for this specific HW.
If you can add it here to the Tiny Core that will be great.

Ubuntustudio definitely should work as long as your sound chip is supported by ffado. Perhaps you want to ask ubuntustudio or ffado guys about your problem.

FWIW I uploaded an update of jack.tcz which now supports firewire through ffado. However, I'm not able to test this. alsa mode seems to work for me ;)

Ah, nice, no more forced alsa via jack. Having it broke vlc among other things for OSS users, but since it was an unknown package I couldn't test, didn't touch it.
