Hifiberry and RPI 3B

Postby Horus » Sun Nov 05, 2017 2:09 pm


For my RPI 3B I'm using the image ArchLinuxARM-rpi-3-latest.tar.gz, aarch64 architecture.

I have added the Hifiberry DAC+ Pro to my Raspberry Pi 3B. It works fine using Raspbian and the guide at https://www.hifiberry.com/build/documen ... ux-3-18-x/ which tells to remove dtparam=audio=on from config.txt and add dtoverlay=hifiberry-dacplus.

But at Arch ARM it just results in just the HDMI interface as sound.

I have found no up to date documentation on how to enable the DAC+. Some guides mention loading modules like snd_soc_hifiberry_dac, but the modules are not installed. Though I also read that the necessary modules are in the mainline kernels now. I also read about disabling modules that are not even loaded...

I have no problem compiling my own kernel, if it is necessary, but I have no idea what modules to additionally enable? Also, what is the recommended way to build a kernel, based on the default kernel?

asp does not seem to work at Arch ARM. Is there a way to download all sources files from https://archlinuxarm.org/packages/aarch64/linux-aarch64 ?

Sorry about so many question... Thanks!

What exactly are you trying to play audio through?
I had gotten a RPi 2 working with a hifiberry dac+ in kodi, I can go and find the boot config for that. If I remember correctly the only thing I had to change was something like a dt-overlay in the boot config, then kodi found the hifiberry output and I could select it.
