resolved

mahmoudspeedo, solved my S10e recording problem with the bug report:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ux/+bug/344627

Just insert into /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf:
Code:
options snd-hda-intel model=basic
Reboot, open the volume control --> Preferences, tick the "Capture" checkbox, and unmute. Sound recording works fine now with Ubuntu netbook remix 9.04.
