Sound for Headphones in Ubuntu 10.04 on some Dell laptops

The only issue I had with installing Ubuntu 10.04 on my Studio 17 was that the headphone jack didn't seem to output any sound. A quick googling solved the issue:
Hi guys, I have a workaround to get sound in the headphone jack.
At the command line:
sudo vi /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf
Add the following line at the end of that file:
options snd-hda-intel model=dell-m6
options snd-hda-intel model=dell-m6-dmic
Now, reboot and that's it, you should have sound now for your headphones. Enjoy!
