If it helps at all, I have a M-Audio Oxygen 49 which works fine. Also, a Korg Nanopad
which works perfectly well, except that you need to run the Korg Kontrol Editor in wine
to program the pad. Finally, tomorrow, I am collecting a Behringer UMA25S and I would
happy to let you know how that works in a day or two if it would be useful.

All of these are on FC8 with PlanetCCRMA and a 2.6.24 RT kernel.
