I have been using Ubuntu Studio for 5 months, before 19.04 then 19.10, on a PC with FireWire sound cards that currently work well.
In the presentation notes of the new version of Ubuntu Studio 20.04 I saw FireWire hardware will no longer be supported due to kernel compatibility problems.
In Ubuntu Studio 19.10 control, I activated the ALSA backend jack, and the FireWire audio interface (Tascam edirol 66) works well, but when I activate the Firewire backend jack the interface disappears. I think the firewire stack currently used is ALSA's.
Question: Will the ALSA FireWire stack continue to work on the Ubuntu Studio 20.04 LTS version if the FireWire backend jack in the new Ubuntu Studio control is removed?
