External amplifier and Internal speaker mixup in Alsa
Hi, The problem is indeed funny and interesting. I am sorry that in place of getting to the details of Mandriva 2008.0 problems with snd_hda_intel (ICH7) I am seeking a quick fix here.

Everything about the sound card functions well, if one connects the external headphone, including the internal speaker on Lenovo 3000 N100 07687YU laptop. When one sets external amplifier in alsamixer to mute, the internal speaker gets muted. But there is no way to mute/unmute the external amplifier. When I physically disconnect the external amplifier, the internal speaker also stops working irrespective of what the settings are in Alsamixer. Though, I could not find the solution on the web, but I believe, someone out there would know it instaneously. It was working fine with Mandriva 2007.0

I tried looking at dmesg, in /var/logs, and /etc/asound.{names,state} but nothing unusual was noticed.

I would appreciate the help given that I am going to install 2008.0 on other Lenovo and HP laptops.
