I have just migrated from windows to linux(Mandriva one 2010 with KDE4) and am a noob to linux.I Had never used Linux before. while everything is going on fine and am learning about it slowly.

My problem is that though I am getting sound from my rear audio jack which is working perfectly, my front audio jack is not working at all. I am not getting any sound from it....

When in windows to disable front audio panel detection to get it warking. So I think there might be a similar workaround here... but that's just a guess.

i am using a Gigabyte- GA31 MES2L motherboard which uses Realtex Audio Drivers.

Please help me on this.
