Does it work for you ?

Jack retasking can be defined as automatic re-assignment of audio jack functionality based on device type being plugged in. For example, when a microphone is plugged into a speaker jack, the system can automatically re-route the mic data to that jack. Intel says that Intel HD Audio also provides improvements that support better jack retasking. So, on your new and shiny Linux distribution, does jack retasking work ? Additionally, when you figure that it works, do you receive any notification saying Device A (where A can be speaker/mic) has been plugged in ? I’d be happy to know the results – use $SUBJECT: Jack Retasking and mail to sankarshan {dot} mukhopadhyay {at} gmail {dot} com to let me know. Chipsets which are relevant are listed here.
