microphone not working
i have just switched from FC2 to debian and right now everything went smooth so far, except that i had trouble getting my mic to work properly under debian.
i compiled the newest alsa modules into 2.6.9 kernel i took from kernel.org without any patches, with ./configure --with-cards=intel8x0 --with-sequencer=yes; make; make install.
my sound works perfectly, i even happened to get multi channel mixing to work after a little bit of searching on the net. i enabled and maximised all volumn through alsamixer and some other apps which made me sure my mic is not muted.
no matter how i tried to get the micohone to work, it just doesn't get picked up by the system, can anyone please help?
i suggest using debian-patched kernels and the make-kpkg utils to compile it. however since everything else seem to work trouble might be somewhere other.
try to lowlevel record something:
$ or better
# dd bs=8k count=6 </dev/audio >test.au
cat test.au > /dev/dsp(audio)
be sure the "record" flag is set to the mic.
