I nailed it, Clemens. Thnx a bunch.
I did cat /proc/asound/version and found out that
I use alsa 1.0.6 that I compiled with my kernel.

I thought I was using v 1.0.10 which I installed
via slapt-get without problems.

I removed the .tgz alsa packages and did a "make uninstall"
on the alsa 1.0.10 sources, restarted and recompiled the 1.0.10
driver, libs, oss and utils. Now the DR-880 gets recognized
no problem.

Allright. I am mucho happy. Thank you, Clemens I owe you one.

Stay well,
