Hi, I've submitted a new package ffado see http://www.ffado.org/ to replace libfreebob and enable firewire IEE 1394 support in jack again. sr 50027 The FFADO project aims to provide a generic, open-source solution for the support of FireWire based audio devices for the Linux platform. It is the successor of the FreeBoB project.
FFADO is a volunteer-based community effort, trying to provide Linux with at least the same level of functionality that is present on the other operating systems. Regards Dave P
