Dell XPS M1330 laptop speakers in OpenSUSE 10.3


I'm having a blast using OpenSUSE 10.3 released a couple of days ago on my (almost) shining new Dell M1330. Everything worked semi-out-of-the-box, except the integrated speakers, which refuse to produce sound. I don't know any exact hardware addresses or how the speakers are connected to the sound card. What I do know for sure is that the ALSA drivers work perfectly (both headphone jacks work, the second works when you enable sound output via mic in kmix). Can anyone help me please?

I guess you have problem with alsa, not the speaker.
My wife have same issue with Dell laptop + Ubuntu 7.04. I'd solve this problem via using original alsa source code. Please try to recompile it.

Regards,

Ok, first: I hate to register in every forum on this planet. This whole register-thing is so annoying...

However, I just found a solution for the integrated speakers. In GNOME just go to your "Volume Control" => "Switches" and tick "Line In as Output". Voila. The second jack is not working, though...but who cares?
