Thanks for your quick reply.

|   From your dmesg, I notice that your USB controller and the Maestro

| the BIOS and/or the kernel) and see if it works then?

Mucking around with my environment, I realized that it was Gnome
Sound, that was taking the device. As I run Enlightenment, I did not
think it could be Gnome. Anyway, I disabled Gnome sound, and it seems
to work great(for now). Otherwise, would anything nasty happen if I
attach a USB device to the same IRQ as the sound card? Can I manually
specify the IRQ to be lets say 9 or something?
