Hi all,

I'm working on IMX6UL custom board with YOCTO sumo linux kernel 4.14.98.

I want to test if my wm8960 can play .wav file in user space with comment below:

root@imx6ulevk:/usr/share/sounds/alsa# aplay -D plughw:0,0 ./Front_Center.wav -v

and I got fail with followed error message:

Hi west

there are several kernel 4.14.98 versions, please recheck

that was used L4.14.98_2.3.1 as it supports i.MX6 series

as described in Release Notes Linux 4.14.98_2.3.1

Also one can check wm8960 and sai2 connections and test if

there are signals with oscilloscope.

For "Mixer DAPM update failed" one can look at sect.7.5 Audio Mixer (AUDMIX)

Hi igor,

Thanks for your reply.

The aplay function with wm8960 is work now.

I found CPU sai pin not connect to wm8960 on my custom board,it's my fault and sorry about that.

Besides,there are some weird problems.

The I2C1 pins connect LCD and wm8960 on my board.

When LCD panel connect to the board,the aplay function can't work.

I think it caused by some problem with I2C1 on my board because I encounter similar situation when I probe I2C1 pins with  oscilloscope.

The thing is I can find all devices on I2C1 with i2cdetect function,but i2cdetect show nothing after I put probe on I2C1 pins .

Have you ever seen some kind of this problem before?

Hope you could help me,thanks.
