Hi Chrisarch,

Take a look at this page:

It's a pulseaudio bug (that genius piece of software tries to be smarter than alsa and fails). You can hack around it using some config files or open a PR to pulseaudio to fix it. I don't have time to do any of that.

When I use alsa as output in vlc for example, I have stereo sound. Should be a problem with the pulseaudio sink. For pacmd list-sinks I get this output for the DMX 6Fire:

me Antergos system also recognizes the card as mono only, with the result that there is sound only on one speaker. Any idea how to fix that?

supermar10 commented on 2018-12-02 17:17

Hi Marco, thanks for the quick answer :) I did what you mentioned, no error was thrown.

But the soundcard is still not detected. If I type 'aplay -l' the other cards are listed but not the 6fire usb. Dmesg shows me the following: [ 39.799322] usb 4-1.1: USB disconnect, device number 3 [ 43.842811] usb 4-1.1: new high-speed USB device number 7 using ehci-pci [ 43.941594] usb 4-1.1: New USB device found, idVendor=0ccd, idProduct=0080, bcdDevice= 1.00 [ 43.941599] usb 4-1.1: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3 [ 43.941601] usb 4-1.1: Product: DMX 6Fire USB [ 43.941603] usb 4-1.1: Manufacturer: TerraTec [ 43.941605] usb 4-1.1: SerialNumber: 0000000000085904

I've rebooted after installing the driver. The card works. Yesterday before installing arch, with the driver built by hand everything worked fine. So it seems not to be a driver issue?

Any other ideas?

Short update: If I manually make the driver and then insert the manually by typing 'sudo insmod snd-usb-6fire.ko' the card works as expected. But somehow with the installation via pacman the driver doesn't get "registered" correctly, modprobe snd-usb-6fire, modinfo snd-usb-6fire... is only telling me there is no module named like that

Hey Mario

can you:

1. checkout the GIT repo for this package:

git clone

2. compile the package:

cd sixfireusb-dkms

3. install the resulting package manually:

sudo pacman -U sixfireusb-dkms-0.6.2-7-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

and precisely report the errors you get during any of these steps? (including the full error message).

Cheers, Marco

Hi, I'm trying to use this package. I can install it without it throwing an error, but it doensn't work. Alsa still doesn't recognize my soundcard. I tried installing it manually but got a ssl error. Do you have any idea what could be wrong?

Regards Mario

Hi, when I try to install the package I get the following error:

Problem fixed.

crepererum commented on 2016-05-22 16:01

@felix1012: can you upload the package file (the one makepkg produces and pacman consumes) somewhere and send me the link?
