TauDAC ASoC Driver

The TauDAC driver is distributed WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY of any kind. Use it at your own risk!

Copyright (C) 2017 Sergej Sawazki


We will build and install the driver using DKMS.


If not already done, download and unzip the driver source directory:

tar -xzf taudac-2.2.2.tar.gz

Now copy the driver source to a directory where DKMS can find it:

sudo cp -r taudac-driver-dkms-taudac-2.2.2 /usr/src/taudac-2.2.2

Install the build dependencies:

sudo apt-get install dkms build-essential

Installing the Kernel Headers

To build the driver, we will need to install the kernel headers. The way to do it depends on the distribution you are using.

The Raspbian way:

sudo apt-get install raspberrypi-kernel-headers

Please be patient, "Unpacking raspberrypi-kernel-headers" might take an hour or so...

The Volumio way:

sudo volumio kernelsource

Installing the driver

To build and install the driver using DKMS do:

sudo dkms install -m taudac -v 2.2.2 --force

Uninstalling the driver

The driver can be uninstalled using DKMS with:

sudo dkms remove -m taudac -v 2.2.2 --all
