...you need to contact the Rune audio developers and check if they already have a new image with an updated kernel.
Prepare your system
If your system is already configured to use a HiFiBerry sound card, there might be an entry in config.txt already. As the Digi+ Pro has the configuration included in the onboard flash chip, you don't need this. Remove all dtoverlay=hifiberry-... lines from the file /boot/config.txt

Take an inexpensive, silent and low-consumption mini-PC and make it perform as an high fidelity digital source.
Well the new HiFiBerry Digi+pro board will be the 'must have' item for anyone using an external DAC i.e. the majority.
It would be great to know that said Hifi enthusiasts will be able to use Rune without poking around in software especially when the majority probably have no programming knowledge like myself.

Due to the changed clock design a new driver is needed, the Digi+ Pro won’t work with the existing Digi+ driver. To ensure everything works perfectly we will start a public beta test. You can order the new Digi+ Pro at a reduced price of €29.90/US$34.90/GBP 26.90. The official recommended retail price of the board will be €39.90/US$44.90/GBP37.90.
However, we require that you help us testing. To do this, you need to be able to:
upgrade the Linux kernel using command line tools (we will provide the commands) and
do some command-line debugging if necessary
We can’t guarantee that the Digi+ Pro will work with a specific distribution. It should be relatively easy to update the system if it is a Raspbian-based system (e.g. Max2Play, Volumio, …). Kernel upgrades won’t work on extremely stripped-down distributions like PiCorePlayer, OpenElec or LibreElec.
Our money-back guarantee applies also to beta-testers. So if the board isn’t working as expected, you can return it to us and get your money back.
We expect that most distributions will upgrade their kernels in the next few months and the Digi+ Pro will work without any patches in most distributions soon. We will support all software developers to integrate full support for the Digi+ Pro in their distributions.

Thank you for the statement.
The kernel version should be at least 4.4.19.
