Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

First question I have is whether you're dual booting and having the same problems in windows. It sounds like a mechanical problem in the headphone jack which is supposed to interrupt the signal to the speakers.
Thanks for your reply....
We had totally bought 4 laptops with exactly same configuration. In two of the laptops we had installed Windows XP. In the other two we had installed Mandriva linux. The windows laptop doesn't have any problem like this. But the other two Linux laptops are having the same problem. We haven't installed dual operating system on any laptop...
Open up alsamixer, and look for an entry that simply says "Headphone" with no volume bar. If you scroll over to select it, the "Item" at the top should say something like "Headphone Jack Sense [Off]". You will want to press 'M' to enable this option (which isn't even offered as an option in Windows...).
I tried installing the latest verion. But i get the following error.
I dont know how to fix this.

That's too bad... The notebook I have at work uses the atiixp driver and it has lots of different settings, including the "headphone sense". I wonder how hard it would be to implement such a thing with the hda-intel driver?
FWIW my home computer doesn't have the "headphone sense" option either.
