After doing searching I noticed with:
With most of the patches I see:
This is the patch series for Linux 2.6.26.
Note: The sigmatel patch have been modified. You should use
model=intel-mac-v* (*=1-5) module parameter to snd_hda_intel.
Typically, you will want to add this line in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa:
option snd-hda-intel model=intel-mac-v3
This modification should only affect people with "intel-mac-v3" models (e.g.
MacBook Pro 1st generation)
Should this be just for the sigmatel patch?
anyways as for having low sound;
maybe trying this option can atleast
put the card in the right state.
Also if you hear crackling
this option worked for me:
options snd-hda-intel position_fix=1
but with 2.6.27-rc3 I don't need this anymore.
