moda replied to IG-88's topic in Additional Compiled ModulesYea I looked at that, but cost was a huge factor. A device that could do DLNA or airplay or chromecast etc would be minimum ~$50, where as I got the Asus Xonar for like $30 haha. Yea that's what I was thinking - surely all the ALSA stuff can be installed using debian chroot? I was thinking about installing shairport-sync in a docker environment (it doesn't have a GUI, it's a CL interface).
moda replied to IG-88's topic in Additional Compiled ModulesHey all, I'm trying to work out how to get PCIE sound cards working with Xpenology installed on my HP N40L Microserver. I've got an Asus Xonar DX 7.1 sound card that I want to use to run Shairport-Sync on for a multi-room setup (ie 8 audio channels -> 4x discrete stereo sound outputs -> 4x pairs configured in ALSA with 4x instances of Shairport-Sync). As far as I can work out, I just need to follow this guide https://xpenology.club/compile-drivers-xpenology-with-windows-10-and-build-in-bash/ to compile the sound card drivers and all ALSA related components, and inject them in? I believe Xonar DX is natively supported in Linux 2.6+ and ALSA, so it should work? Is there anything else that I need to do to my Xpenology install to get ALSA and the sound card drivers installed and working? Thanks
