Hi Guenter et al.,

Well, I downloaded "pd-0.32newrme.tar.gz" and looked at s_linux.c...
It seems that if you ask for 8 channels, for instance, the code opens
four devices for 2 channels each.  But that isn't how the driver seems
to work (from your comments at least it seemed that you had to open
one device for all the channels you wanted.)  In my own code, I tried
opening the 4 devices and failes, and then opened one device for all 8
channels and that worked.  Is this the way I should be doing it???
