Debian etch, on Toshiba laptop Satellite. Card is Intel 82801CA-ICH3 Chip is Yamaha YM753.
Software is Skype
Speakers are working, but not microphone.
Several threads suggest to adjust "Capture volume" using alsamixer. However, it is turned off and I do not know how to make it active. I think I have all necessary kernel modules compiled and loaded (lsmod output follows.) One point I am not sure is snd-ymfpci module. Documents in kernel source says it is for YMF75x, while config option page days Yamaha YMF724/740/744/754 (NO 753!!).
using alsamixer use your arrow keys to go to mic and press the m key. It will change from MM to OO then use the up and down arrow keys to adjust the volume. Just tested and this is what I used to turn the mic on and off on my etch system.
