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.

Hi Mason,

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...

Regards,
Santhosh

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...).

Hi ciotog,

Thanks for your reply.
I opened the alsamixer window by typing the command 'alsamixer'
There I couldn't find any option as 'Headphone'

The options listed are
1) Master
2) PCM
3) IEC958
4) Capture
5) Input Source


Please correct me if i am wrong.



Sorry, I tried to post the screen shot of that window as an image attachment. But i couldn't find any option for image attachment in this forum.

Hmm... Maybe that option isn't offered for the driver for your card. Have you tried compiling the most recent version of alsa? Maybe it's been added since 1.0.9

Do you have the patch command?
Code:
which patch
If not, this is actually a bug in the configure script, since it should check for the presence of patch if required.

The "--with-kernel" option isn't really required, it will be detected automatically in most situations. Do you have kernel source installed for your kernel? If not, you'll have to install it first: http://linuxfornewbies.org/forum/ind...opic,18.0.html

You can get the patch rpm here:
http://fr.rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html...hp?query=patch

Of course if you don't have "patch" installed I wonder what else is missing...

You could try installing 3rd party alsa rpms, for example from here:
http://www.mde.djura.org/index2006.0.html

Thanks ciotog,

I have installed the 'patch' package and the kernel source package for my kernel.

The driver installed successfully but the problem persist again.....

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.
