Hiface on Linux, finally done!
Well guys, since some of you wanted to use the HiFace 1 on RaspyFi, here’s how to get it working. Basically all you need to do is compiling it’s drivers, and execute it on boot. I plan to include those drivers on next release of RaspyFi.
In order to build the driver you need to install your kernel-headers, the build-essential package and git-core binaries, this is quite a hefty amount of data, so make sure you have at least 600 mb free on your SD Card:
apt-get install kernel-headers-$(uname -r) apt-get install build-essential apt-get install git
Now, we’ll clone the git repository
git clone git://github.com/panicking/snd-usb-asyncaudio.git
Then, we are ready to build our driver:
cd snd-usb-asyncaudio make
Then, we’ll start the module by typing:
sudo insmod snd-usb-asyncaudio.ko
Then, we should add the module to /etc/modules in order to make it start at system boot.
Et voilà! Hiface on Linux, so on RaspyFi!
