I’m using Netrunner Rolling, which actually runs Manjaro as a base if I understand correctly. I’ve tried all of the rt, LTS, and regular kernels that are listed in the kernel manager and always have the same problem, which I’ll detail below.
I have an M-Audio Firewire 410 semi-professional external soundcard that I’d really like to keep using. It should be supported according to the following link but I’m not having any luck with it.
When I have the 410 connected at boot time, or when I connect it after the system is up and running, I get the following or something close to it in dmesg.
[25219.826085] firewire_core 0000:03:00.0: rediscovered device fw0
[25219.826096] firewire_core 0000:03:00.0: phy config: new root=ffc1, gap_count=5
[25222.998659] firewire_core 0000:03:00.0: created device fw1: GUID 000d6c01109dc17a, S400
[25223.074782] snd-bebob fw1.0: Failed to send a cue to load firmware
[25223.074801] snd-bebob: probe of fw1.0 failed with error -5
I also have Windows 7 on this machine and when I boot into that the firmware is loaded and the device works. If I reboot into Linux from Windows then the power to the 410 is maintained, as is the firmware in the 410, and all looks good up to and including the login prompt. The light on the 410 stays solid throughout the reboot, which indicates that the firmware is loaded. When I log in it appears that the OS tries to initialize the device and fails in a manner similar to the above output and the light starts blinking to indicate that the device isn’t ready.
For some reason this firmware loading process isn’t working despite the fact that the hardware is natively supported by the kernel. I’m not a kernel guru, but from the information in the above link it would seem that regular kernels work fine. Is there a module that isn’t included with Manjaro kernels? If so, what would it be and how would I go about fixing it?
Thanks in advance.
