hi gang,

some small, but inconsequential headway with my PCMCIA cardbus HDSP under Planet
CCRMA. hoping for some more feedback here ;-)

every other time i startup, i can get the modules loaded, but with the same warning:
ALSA ../../alsa-kernel/pci/rme9652/hdsp.c:534: Hammerfall-DSP: no Digiface or Mu
ltiface connected!
ALSA ../../alsa-kernel/pci/rme9652/hdsp.c:4175: card initialization pending : wa
iting for firmware

once up and running, i can upload the firmware like so:
[root@localhost root]# hdsploader 
hdsploader - firmware loader for RME Hammerfall DSP cards
Looking for HDSP + Multiface or Digiface cards :
Card 0 : RME Hammerfall DSP at 0x19000000, irq 10
Upload firmware for card hw:0
Firmware uploaded for card hw:0

but i cannot get the card to make sound. if i load alsaplayer or xmms, the whole
system freezes. [note that i am almost positive that no firmware has been loaded
to the card before i use hdsploader! to make sure, i disconnect the card form
power between reboots...] if i try to load pd, i get the following:

[root@localhost root]# pd

my PCI scheme looks like this now:

and here are relevant lines from dmesg:
