Hi all,

I have been trying to set up my Phonic Helix Board 24 Firewire on Fedora 
8. I was advised by the FFADO-user mailing list to check out 
PlanetCCRMA, which I have installed. However I am having a few issues.

I now have the realtime kernel at version, 
jackd at version 0.109.2-0.svn1088.1.fc8.ccrma and I am attempting to 
install libffado-2.0-beta6.

However, when I try to start jackd I get the following:

[jonathan at poseidon ~]$ jackd -dfreebob

LibFreeBoB ERR: cannot create libfreebob handle
FreeBoB ERR: FREEBOB: Error creating virtual device

Segmentation fault

Making libffado from source also gives errors, such as:

src/libffado.so: undefined reference to `raw1394_read_cycle_timer'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
scons: *** [support/dbus/ffado-dbus-server] Error 1
scons: building terminated because of errors.

These both seem to indicate that libraw1394 is at fault, so I ensured that the ccrma version of libraw1394 is the only version installed, and it is at version  1.3.0-6.1.fc8.ccrma.

Can anyone advise on what I should do next?
