One bug I found out since the release of the beta of Ubuntu 9.10 (and I couldn't believe the bug is still around now although there is no such problem on Ubuntu 9.04) is this:

My soundcard: RME Hammerfall Multiface I (now the merchandise on sale is updated to version II, product page: http://www.rme-audio.de/en_products_multiface_2.php) did not start after booting Ubuntu 9.10 although the required package  alsa-firmware-loaders is present. Normally, if alsa-firmware-loader is installed, during the boot, /usr/bin/hdsploader will automatically install firmware for HDSP which enable the soundcard to work (and was working very well with Jack on many Linux distributions).

I checked by running:

$ hdsploader
hdsploader - firmware loader for RME Hammerfall DSP cards
Looking for HDSP + Multiface or Digiface cards :
Card 0 : RME Hammerfall DSP at 0xfdcf0000, irq 16
Upload firmware for card hw:0
Unable to open file '/lib/firmware/hdsploader/multiface_firmware_rev11.bin' for reading

Hmm!! Okay.. so this time a .bin for the firmware loader is missing? Hahhah quite silly, but sounds easy to solve. I checked in /lib/firmware/ .... hey!!! There's no hdsploader in there.. strange enough.

So, ok.. one of the easy workaround comes to my idea: Make It.

  1. check if you already have build-essential installed on the system

  2. visit ALSA Project's main page: http://www.alsa-project.org/main/index.php/Main_Page

  3. see what version of ALSA I got on Ubuntu 9.10: comes out 1.0.20

  4. download the alsa-firmware source code from the alsa-project page. Now I see version  alsa-firmware-1.0.20 but any older / newer version should work with no complications, I hope.

  5. extract it, go into the directory, and ./configure

  6. and make

  7. Done! now go into directory hdsploader and you'll see this file: multiface_firmware_rev11.bin in it, just what we need

  8. sudo mkdir /lib/firmware/hdsploader and sudo cp multiface_firmware_rev11.bin /lib/firmware/hdsploader

  9. run hdsploader

  10. (the system is uploading the firmware to the Hammerfall DSP Multiface and...) Yay! The red LED (Host Error) was blinking then goes off! Now it's ready to use!!!

. . .

But why do I have to do this anyway? It kinda sucks + is so silly.
