Dell Latitude E6500


Entering BIOS Setup

With key F2 at the beginning of boot



My config file: config_20100307.txt


Well I had quite a hard time with sound, it works, it's not working anymore, etc… The front mic was working, but it's not anymore and I don't know why, maybe a kernel version or alsa version…

Jack Mic


So my configuration:

  • kernel 2.6.31-gentoo-r6
  • alsa drivers from kernel
  • alsa-tools, alsa-utils 1.0.22
  • kernel sound card drivers:

  • mixer settings:

Front Mic


It was working… with:

  • kernel 2.6.29-gentoo-r1 and/or 2.6.28-gentoo-r1 with same config
  • mixer Input Source at Front Mic

Now with kernel 2.6.31-gentoo-r6 can't get it work, don't know why…
