[alsa-devel] ice1712 and the delta 1010

Hi all,

this is my first post as I was guided here from the linux audio user
list to follow up on a problem I've been having with my delta 1010.

Since upgrading my audio PC to 64-bit, the delta 1010 analog inputs
emit a constant 'hiss' -36 -30dB. Analog outputs and digital ins and
outs are fine. The delta 1010 from a hardware perspective is fine as I
tested it on the same pc hardware under windows7 64-bit.

So far, I have tested it in a 32-bit fedora, 32-bit windows vista and
64-bit windows7 all successfully. This problem arises only in 64-bit

My kernel:

My alsa packages and versions:
alsa-lib.x86_64                          1.0.23-1.fc12
alsa-lib-devel.x86_64                    1.0.23-1.fc12
alsa-tools.x86_64                        1.0.22-1.1.fc12.ccrma
alsa-utils.x86_64                        1.0.23-3.fc12

My modinfo:

So, my question is simply: has this been reported before, in
particular regarding the 64-bit ice1712 module?

I'm pretty convinced it is a software/driver 32/64-bit issue based on my
observations above and confirmation of the same problem under the same
conditions by another user, but am willing to be corrected.

I'm a pretty competent C/C++ coder but a novice coder in the linux audio
world so I'd be willing to learn and help from a driver perspective
given the right direction -- at the least help debug the problem (if it
is even at the driver level).

Thanks for any input.
