you may need to provide output of alsa-info.sh

configure --with-debug=verbose

Do your computer chassis have a HD Front Audio Panel ?


You can also physically check the audio cable of the front panel audio
solution. If there is a cable connected to Pin 4, you have an HD Audio
module; if there is no cable to Pin 4, you have an AC97 module.

The difference between AC97 and HD Audio  "Front panel Support type:"
in BIOS setup
is Misc[11:8] of Configuration Default  is a bit field used to
indicate other information about the jack.
If bit 0 is set, it indicates that the jack has no presence detect
capability, so even if a Pin Complex indicates that the codec hardware
supports the presence detect functionality on the jack, the external
circuitry is not capable of supporting the functionality

you can use hda-jack-sense-test
