Some sound tip:
- Install hda-verb to /usr/local/bin/
- Run as a user /usr/local/bin/hda-verb /dev/snd/hwC0D0 0x15 SET_EAPD_BTLENABLE 2
- It's good idea to add above command as a startup script. If you don't do that, you'll have to run it each time manually.
While using webcam, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, make sure it's turned on (Fn+F6 for webcam, Fn+F8 for Wi-Fi, Fn+F9 for BT).
Tested on Ubuntu 8.04.4 Hardy Heron (kernel 2.6.24-27-generic).
Seems everything is working, but I don't have possibility to check HDMI.
