uname -r

This kernel should work shouldn't it?

I forgot to mention that when I first tried running jackd, I got a 
SElinux complain and when I clicked the message it said:

Allowing Access
If you trust /usr/lib/libffado.so to run correctly, you can
change the file context to textrel_shlib_t. "chcon -t textrel_shlib_t
'/usr/lib/libffado.so'" You must also change the default file context 
files on
the system in order to preserve them even on a full relabel. "semanage 
-a -t textrel_shlib_t '/usr/lib/libffado.so'"
Fix Command
chcon -t
textrel_shlib_t '/usr/lib/libffado.so'

I did the 'Fix Command' as root (chcon -t textrel_shlib_t 
'/usr/lib/libffado.so') and it didn't complain again. I don't know if 
this has anything to do with not being able to get this interface reconized.

(I will post more info in response to David Nielson's replay to this 
thread after I send this)
