Hi everyone,

I've compiled angstrom-v2015.06 for the beaglebone. Unfortunately, no matter 
what I do, I cannot get the LCD7 display (one of these: 
http://elinux.org/CircuitCo:BeagleBone_LCD7) to work. I'm using


as a uEnv.txt file and the cape seems to be loaded correcly

root@beaglebone:~# cat /sys/devices/platform/bone_capemgr/slots   
0: P---L-   0 4D 7.0 LCD CAPE- 4DCAPE-70T     ,00A3,4D SYSTEMS

2: PF----  -1   
3: PF----  -1

But the display stays black. I've fiddled around with a couple of diffent 
kernel options since I saw those on the ancient angstrom 2013 that I still had 
floating around (which does show me the login screen on the lcd) like


But they don't seem to do anything. The display hardware works fine, since an 
off the stock debian image and the angstrom I compiled (without changing 
anything) back in 2013 show me a login screen on the lcd. I've also swapped out 
the beaglebone black since I have a second one available, so it's not the BBB 
hardware either. 

I'm feeling like I'm missing something obvious. Is there something I need to 
tell the uBoot to send output to the lcd?
Any help or pointers are greatly appreciated!
