I hope this is the right place to report this.

Computer: laptop Acer Aspire 1640Z

distro: Debian etch
kernel: 2.6.17

00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801FB/FBM/FR/FW/FRW (ICH6
Family) High Definition Audio Controller (rev 04)

lspci -nv
00:1b.0 0403: 8086:2668 (rev 04)
        Subsystem: 1025:009e
        Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 177
        Memory at d000c000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
        Capabilities: [50] Power Management version 2
        Capabilities: [60] Message Signalled Interrupts: Mask- 64bit+ Queue=0/0 Enable-
        Capabilities: [70] Express Unknown type IRQ 0
        Capabilities: [100] Virtual Channel
        Capabilities: [130] Unknown (5)

I've tried model=acer and acer-aspire to no avail.

I notice in dmesg after trying 'modprobe snd-hda-intel model=acer'
    hda_codec: Unknown model for ALC882, trying auto-probe from BIOS...

but alsamixer shows:
    Card: HDA Intel
    Chip: Realtek ALC883
at the top.

There seems to be uncertainty about which model number, 882 or 883.
I wonder if this is the source of the difficulty.
