EDIROL-UA25 on Linux OpenSUSE

Today finally I configured my EDIROL-UA25 soundcard for used as primary soundcard in my OpenSUSE Linux. Configuration is not difficult enough, because it’s only use built in ALSA driver. Wow, ALSA is really-really great driver, great to you all ALSA developer. Now I can playing song into Amarok or other audio/video software to mapping the sound to my EDIROL sound card.

For mapping sound to my EDIROL-UA25 device I just replace the output sound with

plughw:UA25

It’s really make me happy to use linux. The second task is now I’m looking to compile Ardour2 to used in my linux system.
