Question sound but no headphones


I recently installed suse linux 10.2. The sound card works fine but when I plug in headphones the sound continues to play on laptop speakers and not through the headphones. I am running an HP dv6244us laptop with a Altec Lansing sound card.

please help

Are you using alsa for sound?
I had a similar problem, had to use alsa control to enable 'headhone jack sensor' or something like that
