Hello Volumio Developers and Community!
Just learned that the drivers for the Wolfson / Cirrus Audio RPi I2S DAC by HiasSoft have finally been integrated into the official RPi Kernel!
I was wondering if the devs would consider revising the Kernel currently in use by Volumio 2 to use a more recent one that would provide out-of-the box compatibility for the DAC in question. This would enable any other users that have this DAC to easily use it with Volumio without the need to replace kernels and rebuild initramfs for compatibility and breaking the Auto-Update feature.
I’ve tested out the kernel and everything is working without issues. Obviously there would some things that might need some work to be able to set the output via the web interface although a possible workaround would be to simply activate all outputs on the DAC.
Would love to hear the opinions of the devs and the creator on this subject and it’s feasibility or lack thereof and possible complications if there are any!
