I would like to get my echo audiofire 2 working on Debian testing,
Thinkpad T61. It;s fully supported according to ffado, but I have some

When I start the ffado-mixer I get:
00718932192:  (ffado-dbus-server.cpp)[ 270] main:  Discovering devices...
00718957076: Fatal (devicemanager.cpp)[ 191] initialize: No firewire
adapters (ports) found.
00718957285: Error (ffado-dbus-server.cpp)[ 277] main: Could not
initialize device manager
00718957465: Debug (ffado-dbus-server.cpp)[ 202] exitfunction: Debug
output flushed...
no message buffer overruns

Also: 20:53:32 logginghandler: Could not communicate with the FFADO
DBus service...
