Florian Meier successfully added support for the HiFiBerry DAC in Linux 3.10. The patched kernel is available on GitHub. The next step will be the integration in the mainstream Raspberry Pi kernel. This may still take time. However, we will provide the patched kernel for major distributions to make it easy for you to use HiFiBerry.
We’re working together with two major Linux distributions focussing on audio and media playback to get the HiFiBerry integrated into these distributions. We will announce these partners when we get their feedback, that HiFiBerry works out-of-the-box with the distribution.
