[ubuntu] Firewire audio interface in Ubuntu

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I am trying to get my Presonus Firepod firewire audio interface working with Ardour. I tried following the instructions posted for ubuntu studio: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FireWire but they do not work for me. Since I am using regular Ubuntu, I cannot enable raw1394 and related permissions using Ubuntu Studio Controls. Does Ubuntu enable raw1394 automatically? Also after following the rest of the instructions on this page, I run the command, ls -al /dev/raw1394 and, 'video' is not shown in this report. Infact last time I rebooted and ran this command, it told me that /dev/raw1394 does not exist. I am very confused and would very much appreciate help. (Hardware)
