    33(cobbled together in a hurry by nettings, will be polished over the next couple of days - [[Timestamp]]).

    5 == ffado-dbus-server == 
    65 
    7 FIXME: what are the pros and cons of starting this by default? 
     6== "Configuring" a firewire audio device via your distro's config tool == 
    87 
    9 == /dev/raw1394 permissions == 
     8In order to give your users the same ease of configuration as with PCI sound cards, your config tool would need to do the following if a user selects a firewire audio device: 
    109 
    11 Most distros allow access for group "video" - this is kind of misleading for audio users. 
     10 * install the latest version of JACK (0.112.x as of this writing) 
     11 * make sure the raw1394 module gets loaded when the user plugs the device in 
     12 * make sure the user has r/w access to /dev/raw1394 (most distros grant access to the group "video" only) 
    1213 
    13 FIXME: does udev allow ACLs? If so, both "audio" and "video" groups could be allowed access. 
     14 FIXME: does udev allow ACLs? If so, both "audio" and "video" groups could be allowed access. 
    1415 
    15 FIXME: provide udev example rule file, maybe with different permissions depending on device class (audio or video)... 
     16 FIXME: provide udev example rule file, maybe with different permissions depending on device class (audio or video)... 
    1617 
    17 == Realtime kernel == 
     18 * start the ffado-dbus-server process by default when the user logs in (needed to run ffadomixer and to access the device). 
     19 * inform the user that s/he might want to switch to an rt-patched kernel for best performance (though not mandatory for "desktop" use) 
     20 * optionally provide an rt-patched kernel 
     21 * inform the user that plain ALSA/OSS applications will not work, only JACK apps 
     22 
     23 FIXME: is there a hack to allow non-jackified clients to play audio via ffado? 
     24 
     25 
     26 
     27== providing a realtime kernel == 
    1828 
    1929 * latest rt patchset from http://kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/projects/rt
