SOLVED no sound with front connector after kernel upgrade....Intel HDA onboard sound
 
Hi

I am on a sidux aka Debian unstable.
old k vmlinuz-2.6.27-10.slh.1-sidux-686
new k vmlinuz-2.6.28-0.slh.11-sidux-686

On old k and using sidux in live cd mode I had sound in front connectors.
the live cd mode was scratchy sound.

After kernel upgrade, no sound at front

using alsamixer or kmix the settings were initially unchanged ie
front unmuted volume highest

2) but on new k ...I tried something else which puzzles me.

I have 2 headphones one in front and one in back

If I mute the front in the mixer...I lose sound to the back

Nothing I do in the mixer appears to enable sound at front.


Any clues?

OK problem identified in the codec.....but how to fix

booting both kernels up and running either

Code:

$ cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#0 > /pathway/codecgood(orbad)
looking at 2 codecs gives me this

codec bad
Node 0x0a [Pin Complex] wcaps 0x400181: Stereo
Pincap 0x0000173f: IN OUT HP Detect Trigger ImpSense
Vref caps: HIZ 50 GRD 80
Pin Default 0x0221401f: [Jack] HP Out at Ext Front
Conn = 1/8, Color = Green
DefAssociation = 0x1, Sequence = 0xf
Pin-ctls: 0x00: VREF_HIZ
Unsolicited: tag=30, enabled=1
Connection: 1
0x02

BAD IS Pin-ctls: 0x00: VREF_HIZ

GOOD IS Pin-ctls: 0xc0: OUT HP VREF_HIZ

now how do I fix?
