I was confused on the placement of the dtparam=audio=on statement in config.txt. It must come after the dtoverlay=draws statement as that loads the software that supports the audio.

Hello Basil & Group:

Thanks to Basil and others who commented on my issue.

After a check of power supply (OK, 2.5A) and a full format and re-load of Beta 7, I am now working; a little like Christof's problem and solution :-).

In my /boot/config.txt, I simply uncommented the dtparam=audio=on. In earlier emails (maybe related to Beta6) there was discussion that the dtparam=audio=on needed to be located after the "dtoverlay=" line, rather in it's default position before "dtoverlay". Is this still true for Beta7?
