Razer's Barracuda AC-1 sound card is aimed mostly at gamers, and has had difficulty making inroads against other, more famous, sound card manufacturers. They may take a new turn in their strategy, the C-Media chip that they used has just become Linux compatible. Over at Phoronix, they take a brief look at the interface, and tell you how to get this card working on your Linux install.
"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."
