I have a firewire soundcard (Phonic FireFly808 [not the "808-U" version!]) which I would like to use as my standard soundcard. From what I found out, it seems like only ffado could get this firewire card running. ffado only runs with jack, so I installed jack (which I wanted to use for realtime audio anyway). Now I can play sound via jack.
The next step would be to redirect all system sounds and the sound output of all applications to run through jackd. I searched the web for audio bridges, but I'm not even sure what sound system is used by Ubuntu 11.10 (which I re-installed 20min ago). There is Alsa, Pulseaudio, OSS and millions more and I'm lacking knowledge about the topic.
So after this long story my short question: How can I use jack for all my system sounds?
Thank you very much!
