BBB capemgr recognizes AUDIO CAPE but no soundcard (Robert Nelson kernel 3.8.13)


eMMC and HDMI are disabled in uEnv.txt, AUDIO-cape is

    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

To verify this:

    beagleboneblack:devices/bone_capemgr.8>cat slots
    0: 54:P---L BeagleBone AUDIO CAPE,00A0,Beagleboardtoys,BB-BONE-AUDI-01
    1: 55:PF---

    6: ff:P-O-- Bone-Black-HDMIN,00A0,Texas Instrument,BB-BONELT-HDMIN

The kernel is compiled with the defconfig, the kernel tree is updated
this morning.

Restarting alsa results in no sound card found:

    beagleboneblack:/root>/etc/init.d/alsasound restart

it is stated, that it will work, if HDMI and eMMC are
disabled and a patch is applied to the davinci-code :wink: ...

Where does the pin clash came from...any other cape -- real or virtual
-- has been switched off.

Any help is very appreciated...

Best regards,
