Bug Description

SRU; justification

Impact: The current code decides based on a PCI SSID whether a given sound hardware has a certain hw layout. This list has to be modified each time there is a new model. In this specific case the Dell Studio 17 is not recognized correctly.

Fix: Applying two patches from upstream: the first enables the user to override the hw selection by specifying one of the following values as the model= argument to the snd-hda-intel module:
    - dell-m6-amic Dell desktops/laptops with analog mics
    - dell-m6-dmic Dell desktops/laptops with digital mics
    - dell-m6 Dell desktops/laptops with both type of mics
This allows to make new dell-m6 hw to be tested/enabled without the need for a new module. The second patch is a simple quirk to automatically select the right model for the Studio 17.

Testcase: see bug report.

"There is a possibility, but no guarentee. The first question is does
adding the module quirk to /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base (as below) fix your
sound problems:

   options snd-hda-intel model=dell-m6"

My initial symptom:
-no sound at all when i plug a headphone on headphone jack #1 (no sound on the computer, no sound in my headphone)
-sounds every where when i plug my headphone on headphone jack #2 (sound out of my laptop and out of my headphone)

adding the module quirk do not fix my problems.

after the quirk:

-no sound at all when i plug a headphone on headphone jack #1 or jack #2
(no sound on the computer, no sound in my headphone)

the attachment is command "lspci -nnvv"

Thank you!

With that patch it should be possible to use internal speakers and headphone. It basically does the same as the model override. Needs a bit tuning in the mixer settings.

Hi Svenne, there is no need to do the patch yourself. There is a kernel in my PPA (https://launchpad.net/~stefan-bader-canonical/+archive) that includes the fix. The kernel is based on 2.6.27.11-22, so you might have to enable and update to -proposed packages before adding the PPA sources to the apt config.

svenne (sebastien-venne) wrote :

I have read the following page "https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed" and I have enabled the proposed packages.

Now witch packages I must install (and where to find them?) before installing the kernel in your PPA?

Thank you for your help!

svenne (sebastien-venne) wrote :

Please I need help!

I did add the PPA sources to the apt... but how to upgrade the kernel to 2.6.27.11.22.

now I have 2.6.27.9-generic!!

thank you in advance!

You would first have to selectively update the kernel (linux-image) adn linux-restricted-modules like described on the wiki page (Selective upgrading from intrepid-proposed). If the PPA sources are in the apt sources at the same time I would expect that the PPA kernel will immediately replace the one offered by -proposed. Hm, actually there is an update comming up so, if you updated and got a kernel without smb in the output from /cat/proc/version_signature, you can download the package here http://ppa.launchpad.net/stefan-bader-canonical/ubuntu/pool/main/l/linux/linux-image-2.6.27-11-server_2.6.27-11.23smb5_i386.deb and install it wit dpkg.

Is the server busy or unavailable?

Hello guys!

I've got a fresh install of Ubuntu Intrepid on a Dell Studio 17 (but with a x86-64 kernel) and I experimented the same problem. Following Stefan Bader's explanations, it's finally working :

  1. Activation of proposed repositories and installation linux-generic_2.6.27.11.14 (through synaptic, for me... I was afraid of a mistake with aptitude) and its dependences.
  (reboot... don't know if it's necessary)
  2. Download and installation of linux-image-2.6.27-11-generic_2.6.27-11.23smb5_i386 from Stefan's PPA, using dpkg -i.
  3. Inactivation of proposed repositories and reboot on 2.6.27-11 kernel.

The headphone jacks are OK.

Thanks for all!

@stefan: This fix will be included in any other ubuntu release/distro? Or

@svenne,

This change went upstream with 2.6.28. So it is included in Jaunty and later. For Intrepid this will be included in the next -proposed upload after the one currently there has been promoted to updates. I hope this wont take long now.
