Sound does not mute when headphones plugged in


OK, the important bits first:

Distro: FC6 x86_64
Hardware:
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-M57SLI-S4 - nVidia nForce 570 SLI chipset
Audio Chipset: Realtek ALC883 Audio Codec
Case: Antec Solo

The problem is that the speakers will not mute when I plug in my headhones to the panel at the front of the case.

The headphones play fine, but the speakers do not mute.

Is there something I am missing? I have had a look at alsamixer, but I didn't find a setting that helps me

Any hints? I'm suspecting there's something not happening with the Jack Sense - I get the same thing in windows too, but I am happy for linux to triumph over windows

If it doesn't work in windoz and linux both, probably this is how your laptop works !

I don't know what more to say !

I'm guessing so too, but I'd like to satify my curiosity - I would have thought a new mobo would have a simple feature like this!

Is there a way I can query the jack sense? Or even if the feature is supported by hardware? A command line tool, for example? alsamixer doesn't seem to mention the jack sense feature at all.


Unfortunantly, I am qute new to linux sound, which is quite strange really.

I have checked the alsa website, and there is only a "genric" list for the nvidia nForce chipsets and nothing specific to the codec chip.

I have also just compiled a new kernel (2.6.20-rc3), becasue I saw some jack sense stuff related to similar chips in some alsa changelogs, but no luck.
