Alienware M15x and Ubuntu

Just received my Alienware M15x and install Ubuntu 8.04 on it.
No problem except for the sound.
Need to add the line

options snd-hda-intel model=mbp3

in file
/etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base

Another little issue if you’re using AMsn and you don’t have sounds when you receive a message or when someone connect:
Go to Accound / Preferences / Others and replace
play $sound
with
aplay $sound

to use alsa sound server instead default library.

    Like many m15x owners come to this site… I leave a hint.

    On my laptop using

    options snd-hda-intel model=6stack-dell

    works Good for audio output… with auto-sensing working great.

    I’ve not tested audio input yet.

    Hi!
    Many thanks for your hint!

    With the last ubuntu (9.04) it seems the default configuration working great.

    Fix worked perfectly on 10.4 LTS. Thank you.

    PS: If the fix doesn’t work, try this. Seems to work every time, and supports auto-switching between headphone and speakers. More of a kludge than a fix, but it works.
