Log looks sane, drivers are loaded and the sound card seems to be properly
detected and configured. I don't see any problem there. Please report it to ALSA
project (www.alsa-project.org) and attach the log there.

I had similar pb but now solved

I created file /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base with an entry:
'options snd-hda-intel model=acer-aspire'

This unexpectedly solved it, because my laptop is not an acer!

have a look at

the value 'acer-aspire' is not suggested foor the ALC883, 'acer' is.

Thanks for the tips!
I found this mentioned in one discussion group too, one Zepto laptop was
mentioned there.

At least these seam to make the sound work, I can hear the sound now:

options snd-hda-intel model=acer

alias eth0 tg3
alias scsi_hostadapter libata
alias scsi_hostadapter1 ata_piix
alias scsi_hostadapter2 ahci
options snd cards_limit=8
alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel
options snd-hda-intel model=acer

Headphones do not disable the speakers.
Others have reported this too.
But it is enough for me that the sound works!

I had also removed pulseaudio. 
And I reinstalled alsa related libraries etc. with Smart Package Manager.
But I do not know do those affect to the sound.
(Just to mention what different kinds of issues I have done.)

Correct settings in the above configuration files might help without making any
other changes.

so adding "options snd-hda-intel model=acer" fixed your sound?

Martin, is this something that gets fixed in the kernel, or somewhere else like
alsa configuration stuff?
Comment 7 Martin Stransky 2007-12-07 06:50:05 EST
It has to be fixed in kernel (alsa-drivers) or in alsa-lib. We can't manage a
table for all hardware models and its specific configuration... It's definitely
an upstream issue.

> so adding "options snd-hda-intel model=acer" fixed your sound?

It seems it is enough to add only the "alsa-base" file with the mentioned text
in it:

[root@localhost ~]# cat /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base
options snd-hda-intel model=acer

( I took the original /etc/modprobe.conf file in use and the upper "alsa-base"
file was in use and sound worked still. )

Closing as wontfix.
