    HOWTO: Get your ESI MAYA 44 to work

    In This tutorial, I will describe how to install ESI MAYA 44 PCI under UBUNTU 8.04

    ESI MAYA 44 driver was made by Rainer Zimmerman, thanks to initiative of Piotr Zaryk. I just made update, against new alsa-driver source code. Unfortunately, nobody knows if this patch whenever become official part of alsa, because Rainer didn't sign-off his driver and contact with him was lost. If you want see this patch merge, in the next release of alsa-driver, please write a message on alsa-driver mailing list.

    Turn on terminal and type the following code:
    Code:
    cd; mkdir maya44; cd maya44
    wget http://prl-quakewars.ovh.org/maya44patch-alsa-driver-1.0.17.diff.tar.gz
    wget ftp://ftp.alsa-project.org/pub/driver/alsa-driver-1.0.17.tar.bz2
    Extract patch and alsa-driver-1.0.17:
    Code:
    tar -xjf alsa-driver-1.0.17.tar.bz2
    tar -xvzf maya44patch-alsa-driver-1.0.17.diff.tar.gz
    Apply patch by typing:
    Code:
    patch -p0 < maya44patch-alsa-driver-1.0.17.diff
    Download dependencies:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install build-essential
    Configure and make alsa-driver:
    Code:
    cd alsa-driver-1.0.17
    ./configure --with-cards=ice1724 --with-sequencer=yes ; make
    If everything goes well, you can install new driver by typing:
    Code:
    sudo make install
    Restart your system and enjoy your ESI MAYA 44 sound card under Linux.

    Forgive me my poor english

    Here's a patch for UBUNTU 8.10 beta against alsa-driver-1.0.18rc3:

    esi_maya44-alsa-1.0.18rc3.diff.tar.gz

    In attachment, I add patch against current version of ALSA.

    Hello!
    I have the maya 44 card in my pc with Ubuntu Studio 8.4 64bit.
    I follow the tutorial but in the "Configure and make alsa-driver:" step, the kernell directory was wrong...
    Reading the INSTALL file of the alsa package, I find out the "Kernel Source Tree" option but i dont' now how carry on.
    Can you, Patryk or anyone help me?

    PD: My knowledge in Linux & programming is cero! Je... But i really I want to use my mayya 44 in ubuntu.

    Are you sure that you have kernel-headers installed?

    Try this:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r`

    Re: HOWTO: Get your ESI MAYA 44 to work

    Someone have an idea of how i do to jack set the 4 inputs of the maya44? Only two are set as "capture_1" & "capture_2" but from the alsa mixer can hear fours.
    When i try to configure four "inputs channels" in "setup", jack dont' start...
    Apparently wh:0 are the two first inputs and hw:01 the others two (input device in jack setup) but two divaces at time is no possible.


    Thanks for help!!!

    I'm afraid that I can't help you with this. I think that the best what you can do is write a message on alsa-driver mailing list. Maybe there is somebody who can help you solve this problem(I'm afraid that driver doesn't support those function yet)

    Thanks anyway for your help Patryk!
    You are talking about the "inputs" problem or the "midi controller" problem?

    cheers!
