Without the model option dell-m4-1, the built-in microphone does not work at

However, the docking station's line out works fine without the model option

Strange. As default, model=dell-m4-1 is chosen. It can't be a driver

Perhaps you have another model setup somewhere in /etc/modprobe.d/* file or
/etc/modprobe.* files?

/etc.modprobe.d # cat sound
# options snd-hda-intel model=dell-m4-1 position_fix=2
options snd slots=snd-hda-intel
# u1Nb.ztWiP1hTtl5:82801I (ICH9 Family) HD Audio Controller
alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel

/etc/modprobe.d # grep model *
sound:# options snd-hda-intel model=dell-m4-1 position_fix=2
sound~:options snd-hda-intel model=dell-m4-1

/etc/modprobe.d # grep dell *
sound:# options snd-hda-intel model=dell-m4-1 position_fix=2
sound~:options snd-hda-intel model=dell-m4-1

There is no other directory in /etc that starts with modprobe.

I remember that I saw two entries in output.
Yes, I always wondered what that line meant, because it always showed
"dell-m4-2", regardless of what I selected in /etc/modprobe.d/sound. I thought
it was the detected default or something such.

"Input Source 2" is for the secondary PCM stream. Using it is a bit tricky,
better to forget right now. So, it's no bug, too.

Ok, I was just used from my previous hardware that by clicking some options in
KMix, I could mix several input source (e.g. for Karaoke over Skype, etc.). I
was just wondering whether this functionality was lost now.

Also, the mic is not chosen automatically upon plug in. I always have to select
manually, which is fine with me, but I understood an earlier reply of yours as
indicating that it should als detect, no?
