Laptop 6530b - Linux - audio

Hello,
I have a laptop 6530b, it works well. But I have no sound through the speaker, just the headphone have sound. I use a linux kernel 2.6.27-rc7 with alsa drivers. The chips audio is : AD 1986A with intel ICH9 (centrino 2 platform).
If you have any ideas ....

Thanks
Olivier

PS : This laptop is annonced to be support Suse Linux Enterprise 10

You can check to see if your device chipset is listed and supported by your version of linux...I think the command lspci. I had similar issue using Ubuntu, I had to boot the box with a different kernel to get the computer speaker working. also alsamixer command will bring up an interface, and see if the speaker is muted.

It works !!! ;-)
With the new kernel 2.6.27 the chipset is recognized if I add the parameters model=mobile in the file /etc/modprobe.d/alsa.conf
The next step ... modem configuration
