Yes I experienced the same "phantom" input problem: working for a
while and blinking the eye to you and then disappearing :(
I rembemer another post on this also..
AFAIM i solved the problem removing DEVFS support from the kernel.
As I found making this Midisport2x2 work a little painful, I've
done a couple of Debian packages to make life easier:
- ezusbmidi (contains 1x1 and 2x2 firmwares and adds appropriate
scripts and entries to the hotplug system, allowing you to plug
and play Midisports)
- usb-midi-source (the OSS kernel driver from http://member.nifty.ne.jp/Breeze/softwares/unix/usbmidi-e.html)
If you want to use snd-usb-midi I've also packaged a recent
CVS snapshot of ALSA modules along with a lowlat kernel.
You can install them putting the line
deb http://ftp.agnula.org/debian woody demudi
apt-get install <PACKAGE>
where <PACKAGE> can be:
usb-midi-source (if you run a custom kernel)
(there is also an ACPI patched version of the kernel let me know if
you need it)
Note that these package are almost untested (basically installed
nowhere else than my laptop :))..
Sources are under CVS (http://cvs.agnula.org)
