Description Vince C. 2006-03-07 14:07:40 UTC

I've installed Gentoo Linux using Live CD 2005.1 on a Dell Inspiron 9400. The latter has an Intel ICH7-M chipset with Intel High-Definition Audio. When I plug my headphones jack into line output the sound from the PC's speakers doesn't mute. I'm using kernel built-in alsa driver module, snd-hda-intel.

lspci: 00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) High Definition Audio Controller (rev 01)

Kernel sources:
[I--] [  ] sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-2.6.15-r7 (2.6.15-r7)

ALSA Packages:
[I--] [  ] media-libs/alsa-lib-1.0.10 (0)
[I--] [  ] media-libs/alsa-oss-1.0.10-r1 (0)
[I--] [  ] media-sound/alsa-headers-1.0.10 (0)
[I--] [  ] media-sound/alsa-utils-1.0.10 (0.9)

If I boot into Windows the problem doesn't happen, i.e. the sound from the PC's HP is muted as soon as I plug the jack in. So it must be a driver problem.

Please try to reproduce with alsa-driver 1.0.11_rc5 and if it's still an issue reopen this bug.

Looks like it works for me :-) . Thanks.

Now there is still a problem with the microphone - I haven't tested it with the new release of Alsa Driver. The problem is exhibited when using Skype, for instance; I speak but the other person doesn't hear anything. Should I file a new bug report about that if it doesn't work? Or is this new release a complete solution?

BTW will this release be included in a (vanilla, gentoo) kernel tree? If yes with what kernel version?
