A lot of notes about the work on linux lenovo s10-3t I wrote in his blog: Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t and linux (In Russian, but you can use google translator or etc).
To get work done jack for headphones, add in
nano -w /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf
options snd-hda-intel model=“olpc-xo-1_5”
To get a usable microphone add in
options snd-hda-intel model=“ideapad”
After that a reboot is required.
This solution has been tested on the kernel linux 2.6.35, but it is unknown is whether under earlier versions of the kernel.
