I am new to Linux and ALSA. Hope that you can help. Thank you in advance.

markc 22:24, 12 January 2007 (EST) Not sure if I can help much but I feel that if you try a later version (K)ubuntu or Knoppix liveCD you might find that your USB device works better. You are running a 2.6.9 kernel and ALSA v1.0.6 which is close to a year old (ALSA is Aug 2004). I notice the changelog for ALSA 1.0.7 mentions "- add UA-1000 sample rate detection" so the latest ALSA v1.0.13 may have even more fixes. If a recent liveCD proves you can play mp3s and simply record from a mic then I would suggest having a look at the 32bit version of http://64studio.com. Good luck!

Johnlee 11:56, 25 January 2007 (EST) With Fedora Core 5, UA-1000 behaves much better. However, I have now decided to use RME Hammerfall DSP Multiface II and HDSP-PCI combination. There seems to be a little better support in the web.

Before I boot up the computer, UA-1000 is powered on and its usb cable is connected. The 'sample rate' dial is set to 'USER SET'. This way, the USB is in a state that works under Windows XP.

No sound heard on the speaker connected to the line out 1 of UA-1000.

I record using arecord from the "input 1" microphone. Then, try to playback using UA-1000. I hear no sound from the speaker connected to the line output 1 of UA-1000.

When I unplug the UA-1000's usb cable, my keyboard does not work
