I am also using an ICE1712 card and having the same problems since I installed karmic. Volume control seems to work but is not routing audio properly. It lists a "dummy output" but i have no sound in any application unless i'm running the Jack server. Is there a fix for this, or else a way to rout everything through the jack server? (firefox and rhythmbox etc)?
The card is a multi-in/out Hoontech DSP24
no idea what that means; pretty new to all this.
E: pid.c: Daemon already running.
E: main.c: pa_pid_file_create() failed.
