I should have bought the less expensive HDSP 9632 instead ;). For
testing purpose I installed Windows XP, my RME sound card isn't broken,
it definitively is a Linux driver issue and perhaps PCIe support on
Linux too, but maybe PCIe support is not an issue.
IOW upgrading Linux software shouldn't cause issues for a Envy24 audio
cards, just buying a new mobo without PCI makes old cards unusable.
