I've seen mention of this somewhere else but I don't know what the fix is (although it sounds like one does exist from what I surmise).
I recently installed Debian (testing) on my laptop - a HP Pavilion dv8000. Everything works fine except one thing - the audio. It works but the volume can only be controlled with the PCM audio slider (not the normal volume slider). It's annoying to have to open the audio controls every time I want to mute or change volume - the buttons on my laptop work, but they change the master volume (which as I said doesn't change the actual volume for some reason).
Is there some setting or something where I can tell the system that these two sliders need to be switched or something?
here's that particular line of the "lspci" output if anyone cares:
