I’ve installed this week a Rivendell station with a M-Audio Delta 66 Rev E sound card. As experienced in 2008, the alsa ice1712 driver can’t be loaded with (some ?) Delta 66 Rev E :
[ 11.605252] invalid CS8427 signature 0x0: let me try again... [ 11.606638] unable to find CS8427 signature (expected 0x71, read 0x0), [ 11.606687] initialization is not completed [ 11.606732] CS8427 initialization failed [ 11.606784] ACPI: PCI interrupt for device 0000:05:01.0 disabled [ 11.606790] ICE1712: probe of 0000:05:01.0 failed with error -14
Same problem occurs with alsa 1.0.17 on lenny or 1.0.18 on jaunty.
Several tips are available in forums … but the only way I found to use the card is to patch (again) the alsa driver to disable the cs8427 initialisation.
But this time, here are all the required resources to make your Delta 66 Rev E work with alsa :
