Can you still boot into your upgraded installation with your old kernel?

This bug also affected me, in the same way you describe

* Best regards,

Looks like you missed my subsequent 2 or 3 posts, so a little update is in order (with some new information as well):

I booted in recovery mode and it booted after that.* It still does not see my external sound device--

pad@Studio909:~$ asoundconf list

Names of available sound cards:


It used to show "Ozone Academic", and I could set it as my default sound card.


You say that your whole LUG has this problem. *If no one has the

hard-drive space to hold a backup of someone else's non-replaceable

files, perhaps everyone could pitch in a bit for an external hard drive?

This is worst-case scenario. *I'm quite sure that you haven't lost any

data, since your symptoms sound identical to mine. *At any rate, 'hope

someone can help you figure out the cause, so you don't have to resort

to a backup->bare metal recovery!
*I do not remember saying that.* I have my /home folder backed up to an
external drive.* I am not sure about how to use it in a new system.

I have since made room for a clean install of the 64-bit version
(goodbye 64 Studio and Musix) and have successfully installed it. I
kept the old installation and I can boot both of them. Now suddenly the
Ardour sessions on my Firewire audio drive don't open because I don't
have the right permissions; efforts to change permissions, using the
file browser a root, have been unsuccessful. My next step is to attempt
it with command line tools, but I haven't gotten to it yet. Strangely,
my old install also can't open them, with exactly the same errors, even
though I did the original recordings with it.* I tested some just
before installing the new system--they worked (through the cruddy
onboard sound), now they don't.

A Rosegarden session on the same drive loads fine; I didn't try recording anything.

Other than not accessing most of my previous Ardour sessions, the new install works
much better.* I can see my MIDI keyboard in JACK's ALSA tab, which I
couldn't before.* I haven't gotten around to installing sound fonts to
check out Q-synth yet. * Luis S?nchez de Posada wrote:

You should take a look to:


I finally got my m-audio ozone working in hardy
LOL I am *very* familiar with that thread.** I think we have met there; I post as Aurora on Ubuntu forums.* My first post on that thread was a year ago.

The device works out-of-the-box with Hardy.* I haven't really tested it on this box, but on the MacBook I have recorded some MIDI with Rosegarden, just as a test. There are still realtime issues I have to fix before it is usable.
