With much help from Mark and Fernando, my hdsp 9652 is showing up so far so 

I ran the binary that Mark sent me of hdspmixer 1.3 and that seems to be 

I ended up using a .src.rpm of the alsa-driver and alsa-kernel packages that 
fernando sent me, which already applies the 9652 patch.

BUT, the tarball you sent me, Mark, of hdspmixer1.3, still won't build.  
doesn't matter much, your binary seems to work, but for academics' sake I 
still wonder what up.

Tests I have done include sending a tone from my mixer out - hdspmixer saw the 
tone -  3 dbs lower than I expected - don't know why that is, but it may not 
be an actual "problem" rather than a "feature" to do with the board or 

then I did my old open up ardour trick, and tracks assigned to the proper 
channels just fine :)  - I was even able to route to the spdif outs and see 
what I expected - always a bit quieter than I expect, by 3dbs - ?  oh well, 
easily corrected by boosting the playback fader, I see :)

hdspmixer confused me for a second.  it took me a second to figure out that 
you click on the black selector, and that's just a universal selector, and 
you select, for example, adat 1, 1&2, and you are then assigning whatever you 
want to that output my moving faders - that was crazy at first, but now I see 
how incredibly powerful and flexible that is.

that's all for now.  on to phase ii, testing inputs (confident there - was 
already able to record the test tone on ardour) and such.  then phase iii, 
tweaking for latency so that it actually works smoothly in session.

Thanks very very much!  I'll be back atcha again soon, I'm sure :)
