Since oct/nov I've been experiencing problems with my soundcard: an Echoaudio Layla24.
The card can't find the firmware, thus not working.
I tried a fix from the developers homepage which worked for one week or so, until I upgraded some packages, probably hotplug, udev, I don't know.
I don't know what else I can do, I'm desperate.
The url refering to the problem is a report open to alsa by someone who's experiencing the problem with an Echoaudio Layla3G. It points to the errors that he and I are experiencing(same errors).
I'm reporting here in spite i'll get some support i seem can not get from alsa maintainers since they seem to think this problem isn't actually related to alsa.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. # /etc/init.d/alsasound restart or reboot
Firmware is not loading.
Firmware should load, and the soundcard should work.
Try with udev-104-r4; if it doesn't help, you'll need to post lot more information for everyone to be able to actually help.
Thank you pal. I really appreciate your help :)
It worked! Not only r4 but r3 too.
No need for patching pci.agent hotpug script either(as suggested by the driver dev)
However I wouldn't close the bug until I get some feedback from other guy(the one with a Layla3G) from the alsa thread in the url provided.
Thanks a lot :)
Thanks for reporting back.
