I have an E-MU 1616m PCI Soundcard and recently made the switch from Windows to Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty). From a fresh install, everything works good except for a small error when I boot up that says it cannot find the firmware for my soundcard.
Can anyone please help me learn what I need to do to get my soundcard working again?
dmesg | grep emu is:
[ 22.083208] emu1010: Special config. [ 22.083289] emu1010: EMU_HANA_ID = 0x3f [ 22.083291] emu1010: filename emu/emu1010b.fw testing [ 22.119132] firmware: emu/emu1010b.fw not found. Err = -2 [ 22.119136] emu1010: Loading Firmware file emu/emu1010b.fw failed
ls /lib/firmware/emu says that the directory does not exist!
I am new to Ubuntu and Linux in general so I am not sure what other information I can provide.
I found this link on installing the ALSA driver for the E-MU 1616m PCI, but I am worried I will wreck something trying to install from source and things will go all Ubuntu Crazy on me.
Some more system information:
lspci | grep audio

modinfo snd and
modinfo soundcore both return results so they are there as well.
