interesting thing with audio on ubuntu 6.06 64bit


I have managed to install ubuntu onto my 64bit laptop, however when i try to listen to music, audio only comes out of the internal speakers on the laptop, it doesnt seem to recognise when i have headphones plugged in thru the audio sockets. the laptop is a compaq presario v6301au laptop.
can anyone please help me as i want to be able to listen to music privately when im on the train

Hi hallows1, What card is this? You can check /usr/src/linux/Documentation/sound/alsa/ALSA-Configuration.txt for module options that may make your card work better.
Good luck. ;-)

Try this.
Code:
:~$ zless /usr/share/doc/alsa-base/driver/ALSA-Configuration.txt.gz
Found here.
Good luck. ;-)
