    Phoronix: Razer Barracuda AC-1 With ALSA

    Last November at Phoronix we had featured a preview of the Razer Barracuda AC-1 sound card and after taking off its EMI shield we had found that this card depended upon the C-Media Oxygen HD CMI8788 audio processor, which at the time was not supported under Linux. Though support had come in the Open Sound System (OSS) version 4.0 for this CMI8788 APU. Well, now finally in ALSA 1.0.15 the Advanced Linux Sound Architecture will support this C-Media audio chip. ALSA 1.0.15-rc1 was released recently and contains the initial CMI8788 audio driver. In this article we will be taking a quick look at where this driver stands today for the Razer Barracuda AC-1 under Linux.

    Thanks for the article, much appreciated. Did you tested last time with OSS? Just curious how well supported by 4Front this card is...

      Is anyone aware if this card or chipset is supported properly yet, using either alsa-1.0.16 or 1.0.17?
