You asked me about support for a driver that is free and *working*
I told you that you should remove the alsa driver before you try
loading the rme96xx driver, and the next thing I hear from you is
that you are lamenting on a public list about  my driver not working.

Maybe this made me overreact a bit.
Sorry, and thank you for pointing out the problems you see with OSS,
be assured that personally I think that ALSA is much superiour
to OSS, but at the same time you might accept that I had very good reasons
for writing the OSS driver. (which was actually not much more than
changing Winfrieds driver to include interleaved mode for standard OSS
