Audio Cape with Beaglebone Black

elmohandis,

indeed this “hack” will allow the audio cape to work. kernel driver support wise, there is nothing preventing the cape from working, only the resource conflict with the virtual hdmi cape. with this hack in place, of course the HDMI will not be functional…

it would great if you could create a wiki page over on elinux.org to document your testing!

Hey guys!

Can you point precisely what should I disable and where to enable the audio cape? I have the same issue

Hi,

I modified my uEnv.txt to this and it works now!

optargs=quiet drm.debug=7 capemgr.disable_partno=BB-BONELT-HDMI,BB-BONELT-HDMIN,BB-BONE-EMMC-2G capemgr.enable_partno=BB-BONE-AUDI-01

Hi Gregory,

Thank you for your solution.
But it doesn’t work for me.
Is it the ‘uEnv.txt’ under /boot?

uEnv.txt is under the partition which is popup when you plug board over usb

Plug in your BBB to a host computer using the mini usb data cable.

Go to My Computer>BeagleBone Getting Started> and open uEnv.txt
Copy and paste this command into the .txt file. Make sure to save your changes. (Ctrl+s)

optargs=quiet drm.debug=7 capemgr.disable_partno=BB-BONELT-HDMI,BB-BONELT-HDMIN,BB-BONE-EMMC-2G capemgr.enable_partno=BB-BONE-AUDI-01

Safely eject your BBB from your computer and mount the weather cape onto your BBB.

Sorry, meant to say mount your ‘Audio Cape.’
