    Hi there

    Has anyone managed to get the Tascam US-122 device working on the default install on Linpus Linux?

    I have been following this guide:

    http://www.astro.caltech.edu/~mcs/tascam_us122/

    and downloaded the relevant firmware from this site:

    http://langerland.de/linux/usx2y/install.html

    and have got so far as getting the firmware loaded and automatically changing the product ID to 8007 when its plugged in. Once that is done udev should load the second stage firmware and then the US-122 LEDs should light up - but it doesnt.

    Here are my udev rules in /etc/udev/rules.d/55-tascam.rules/55-tascam.rules :

    Code:
    BUS=="usb", ACTION=="add", SYSFS{idProduct}=="8006", SYSFS{idVendor}=="1604", RUN+="/bin/sh -c '/sbin/fxload -D %N -s /usr/share/alsa/firmware/usx2yloader/tascam_loader.ihx -I /usr/share/alsa/firmware/usx2yloader/us122fw.ihx'"
    
    BUS=="usb", ACTION=="add", SYSFS{idProduct}=="8007", SYSFS{idVendor}=="1604", RUN+="/bin/sh -c '/usr/bin/usx2yloader'"
    
    Here's my output of lsusb when the device is plugged in:

    Code:
    Bus 005 Device 001: ID 0000:0000  
    Bus 004 Device 001: ID 0000:0000  
    Bus 003 Device 001: ID 0000:0000  
    Bus 002 Device 011: ID 1604:8007 Tascam US-122 Audio/Midi Interface
    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000  
    Bus 001 Device 002: ID 064e:d101 Acer Crystal Eye Webcam
    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000 
    and here's the message I get back if I sudo usx2yloader:

    Code:
    usx2yloader: no US-X2Y-compatible cards found
    
    If anyone could help I'd be very grateful!

    Hi, I have played with a us-122 on a Debian-lenny system, so I can compare some things:

    From /boot/config... on the Acer-One:

    From my Debian sytem:

    and later:

    ( It can also be =m in stead of =y )

    I think You need these modules compiled and ready as loadable modules.

    Ok thanks for your reply, I'm pretty new to Linux so would be grateful if you could let me know how to get those modules added in so I can get it working. That would be great thanks

    I think madfuload is M-Audio Transit USB specific binary.
