Bug Description

In Ubuntu 8.04 and 9.04, if I plugged a set of headphones into the front jack of my motherboard, I could hear all the sounds that were also coming out of the speakers connected to the rear jack.

In 10.04 I can not get any sound from the front jack.
I see bug 441502 has similar symptoms

Is it possible this line from my syslog is relevant?

I'll attach the boot section of the syslog to this report. Lastly, if you need information about the motherboard, lshw says:

Hi Ben,

Please, if you are still having issues, test with the latest development release of Ubuntu. ISO CD images are available from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/releases/ .

If it remains an issue, could you run the following command from a Terminal (Applications->Accessories->Terminal). It will automatically gather and attach updated debug information to this report.

apport-collect -p alsa-base 519157

Also, if you could test the latest upstream kernel available that would be great. It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue. Refer to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds .

Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please remove the 'needs-upstream-testing' tag. This can be done by clicking on the yellow pencil icon next to the tag located at the bottom of the bug description and deleting the 'needs-upstream-testing' text.

Please let us know your results.

Which Connector is selected in the dropdown menu of GNOME sound
preferences > Output?

If I right-click on the volume control in the notification, choose 'Sound Preferences', then choose the 'Output' tab, the Connector is 'Analog Speakers'.
In the dropdown menu, I can also choose 'Analog Output'. Doing so does not change any of the symptoms.

As requested, I ran 'apport-collect -p alsa-base 519157' with an up-to-date system, and then again after installing a mainline kernel (hopefully I did what I should have).

I'm removing the needs-required-logs needs-test-current-image tags.

This control is generally used when you want output over s/pdif, not analog speakers connected via the rear panel (note that most mainboard/component integrators expose this as the "front").

Hmm, I'm a bit above my head, here, but I did this command:
amixer cset numid=33 off

and now 'amixer' shows this:

Simple mixer control 'IEC958',0
  Capabilities: pswitch pswitch-joined penum
  Playback channels: Mono
  Mono: Playback [off]

And the front headphone jack is still not working. What I don't know, though, is if this is the change you were trying to suggest.

Are you able to reproduce this symptom using linux-alsa-driver-modules-$(uname -r) from ppa:ubuntu-audio-dev? Note that you need to be running a Lucid kernel.
