Yes, I installed it just as S C Rigler suggested, and after a reboot, the
raw1394 device was available to the 'audio' group, and I could launch jack
with the firewire driver.
This, however, is dependent on my being a member of the audio group. I
did that manually a few days ago, to get around another issue I was
having. Looking thru /etc/group now, I see a 'jackuser' group. Is that
one you defined, and is it the 'preferred' group to put users into for
pro-audio work? If so, maybe it would be better to assign /dev/raw1394 to
In any case, I would suggest adding a section to the 'installing CCRMA on
F11 & 12' describing the need to subscribe the user to *some* priviledged
group in order to access the specialized hardware.
I would also suggest moving the section on the RT kernel up higher, as the
first item after adding the CCRMA repositories, before even thinking about
playing with applications.
