Audiophile 2496 Configuration in Fedora 9
I am fairly new to Linux and brand new to Ardour and DAW's. I have just installed Fedora 9 on a dual boot custom PC with an M-Audio Audiophile 2496 PCI card. I cannot get any sound into or out of the card. I have installed Ardour and all of the dependencies, (Jack, Pulse Audio, ect.). There are a lot of issues on the Fedora forum with sound and the 2496 card. I am sure that all of the pieces are there but nobody seems to have the whole solution outlined. I know a response may be lenghthy but is anyone willing to assist me to get it configured in Fedora 9? If so I would like the following information:
1. Required packages.
2. Conflicting packages that need to be removed.
3. The required configuration under Hardware/Sound Card.
4. How to set the M-Audio mixer to get PC sounds and input sounds from my external mixer.
I would like to thank you in advance for any assistance you can offer. I came to this forum because I know that people here are using the same hardware and programs.
