I tested yesterday Karmic Alpha 4 with Delta 66 and Echo AudioFire 4, 
both works as with Jaunty and Hardy before.

Here is my post about Karmic Alpha 4:

And here are my notes about building ffado library in Hardy:

Maybe it is just your /dev/raw1394, I use mod 777. I did this for Karmic 
Alpha 4. Here is general howto:

studio at ubuntu-studio:~$ sudo nano /etc/init.d/raw1394
studio at ubuntu-studio:~$ sudo chmod +x /etc/init.d/raw1394
studio at ubuntu-studio:~$ sudo update-rc.d raw1394 defaults 80
update-rc.d: warning: /etc/init.d/raw1394 missing LSB information
update-rc.d: see <>
   Adding system startup for /etc/init.d/raw1394 ...
     /etc/rc0.d/K80raw1394 -> ../init.d/raw1394
     /etc/rc1.d/K80raw1394 -> ../init.d/raw1394
     /etc/rc6.d/K80raw1394 -> ../init.d/raw1394
     /etc/rc2.d/S80raw1394 -> ../init.d/raw1394
     /etc/rc3.d/S80raw1394 -> ../init.d/raw1394
     /etc/rc4.d/S80raw1394 -> ../init.d/raw1394
     /etc/rc5.d/S80raw1394 -> ../init.d/raw1394

studio at ubuntu-studio:~$ cat /etc/init.d/raw1394
chmod 777 /dev/raw1394
