Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'm running Mandrake 8.2 on a VA Linux Startx SP2. It came with an Ensoniq es1371 sound card. I bring up gmix, turn up the slider for the mike, check record, tap the mike. Nothing out of the speakers. I try to grab a sample with yarec and play it back. Nothing on playback. No sound.
I know the microphone is good because I've tested it with another piece of equipment.
I know the audio output is good because xmms will play music files.
I know the line input was working at one point because I've used it, but I haven't used the line input lately.
While I haven't figgured out the problem yet, I think I am on the right track! I'm tinkering around in alsamixer, try setting the mic to capture and making sure it's not muted. If I find a definate answer I'll get back to you or if you find it let me know ok.
