I have tried with the latest kernel in debian etch (2.6.18) This gives
same error but with correct model number, ie
hda_codec: Unknown model for ALC883, trying auto-probe from BIOS...
when trying to load either model=acer or acer-aspire
It looks as though I have to wait to try kernel 2.6.24 as in debian
unstable. When I have a fast internet connection one day, I shall try
this. It is not practical or affordable to upgrade over GPRS.
Thankyou for the suggestion.
