Installation Instructions

Step 1: patch kernel to get I2S Audio Record Device for Si468x

patch -p 1 < 0001-Added-support-for-Si468x-Digital-Radio-Receiver-DABP.patch

Follow kernel build instructions at https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/linux/kernel/building.md

To enable the Si4688 driver execute (for cross-compiling)

make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-linux-gnueabihf- bcm2709_defconfig
make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-linux-gnueabihf- menuconfig

go to "Device Drivers" --> "Sound Card Support" --> "Advanced Linux Sound Architecture" --> "Alsa for SoC Audio Support"

say "module" for "Support for DABPi featuring a Si4688 FM/FMHD/DAB receiver"

Compile and install the kernel + modules, add following lines to /boot/config.txt

dtparam=i2s=on
dtparam=spi=on

dtoverlay=rpi-dabpi

Then reboot. On success you should see correct I2S initialization and a new alsa recording source:

root@pidev:~# dmesg |grep i2s
[    6.411170] snd-rpi-dabpi soc:sound: si468x-hifi <-> 3f203000.i2s mapping ok

root@pidev:~# arecord -l
**** List of CAPTURE Hardware Devices ****
card 0: sndrpirpidabpi [snd_rpi_rpi_dabpi], device 0: DABPi Hifi si468x-hifi-0 []
  Subdevices: 0/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

Step 2: compile Si4688 controller software

git clone https://github.com/teknoid/dabpi
cd dabpi
make clean && make

Step 3: place firmware in ../si46xx_firmware/

root@pidev:/anus/si46xx_firmware# ls -la
