    try downloading and installing the latest alsa driver. This is a common problem and it is fixed in version 1.3 I think

    Also, try using some different audio programs in Linux. That might help. Try getting a version of Linux with lots of audio programs. Otherwise, start using the program managers to download some media players.

    Try setting the option "Autosense Headphone Jack" in kmix or gnome-volume-control. It may not have been enabled already.
