    The driver I am using says ALSA in it, and I can run alsamixer from the Konsole.
    I turned off the pulse audio support, exited, restarted the X server, and when I opened Kmix (and alsamixer) I don not have separate audio controls, only Master (plus PCM, front etc').

    OK, after several minutes of searching, it looks like the only solution I have seen for problems with this chipset is here....

    Matrix:Module-hda-intel - AlsaProject

    Hope this works for you, Loy.

    Uh, thanks.
    I'm still a newbie and it'll take me some time to read, decipher and follow those instructions.

    Do I need to download and install the ALSA driver to do all that? I thought I had the driver already?
    What is OSS/free emulation?

    The most current driver I have seen (from mandriva or plf) is ver. .16 - but ver. .19 is available now. Before you step into building alsa to update from source, open rpmdrake and install the alsamixer and see if this version of mixer has independent controls for speakers/headphones...Loy.

    All I see in the rpmdrake is a gui for alsamixer, a GNOME environment alsamixer and a dock plugin?

    Try installing the gui for alsamixer and the dock plugin. If you don't see what we're looking for, the I will try to help you install the latest alsa driver from source.Loy.

    OK. Now I see the controls for the headphones, in the GUI and in the command line alsamixer. But I can't control them.
    The volume on headphones is locked at zero, and I can't make them go up, even after I plugged in the headphones.
    When I play a track the sound still comes out of both the speakers and the headphones, and the volume on both of them is controlled by the Master in alsamixer.
    Now what?

    Yeah, could you help me with that?
    In my package manager it says that I have version 1.0.16 installed, and does not list any older version to upgrade.
    So, how do I do this manually?
    Thanks.
