No, the 2x2 works fine, AFAIK. Also some other M-Audio devices do
work, but not the Quattro and the Audiophile USB and - according to
your logfile excerpt - the Duo. ("Invalid alt settings" is a typical
error in this case.)

I liked the Terratec Phase 26 in my tests, which is of similar quality
as the duo. There are a lot of cool USB devices, that still work on

I'll probably buy the Terratec Aureon USB. 

(BTW: Anyone interested in my Quattro? Very good condition, unopened
driver CD. Contact me privatly. ;)

See above for the small number of known un-2.6 devices. I'll contact
the alsa-devs to update their soundcard matrix.
