Tks for this detailed post, surely it will help others.

just an heads-up :P next kernel update in lmde
linux-image-3.2.0-4-amd64:amd64 (3.2.35-2, 3.2.39-2), linux-headers-3.2.0-4-amd64:amd64 (3.2.35-2, 3.2.39-2),
will have backported fixes for the i915 bugs (using it in several installs and not one freeze since)

Any ideas on fixing internal mic? I've posted bugreport here:

https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgr ... 0Utgdw8xeI

but got no response yet.

The most funny is in fact that it worked for me on previous Arch installation (I edited either .asoundrc or options of snd-hda-intel, but don't remember what exactly I did :().
