[SOLVED] Headphones and speakers
When I plug in my headphones, I would like for the speakers to stop working, but they don't.
What should I do?
My sound card is Intel Corporation|82801G (ICH7 Family) High Definition Audio Controller.
The driver I am using is ALSA "snd_hda_intel".
Do you have acpi and apic features enabled?
Um, what's that?
ACPI - Advanced Configuration and Power Interface.

APIC - Advanced Programmable Interrupt Controller.

I ask because these may affect the integrated sound card functions, (the switches are software controlled now). Open mcc, go to boot, then setup boot system. Under main options is ACPI, and beneath advanced is APIC. If that fails to help, try using a different driver for the card (maybe OSS?). Apparently, there are many such issues w/ laptops on Linux and windoze...Loy

Any other ideas?
Open mcc, goto hardware, sound configuration, and next to driver there should be a drop down menu of drivers currently available for your card...Loy.
Yes, I did that, there are hundreds of drivers there. How do I know which to use?
Nope, no OSS.
Ok, make sure that the driver currently used is an ALSA drive corresponding to your soundcard (or at least the chipset for it). Open mcc, goto hardware then sound configuration. Turn OFF pulse audio support (should include auto. routing from.....) restart your session. Open the mixer and see if you have separate audio controls for headphones and speakers...Loy.
