Mic problem Inspiron1300 SuSE 10.1


Hi,
I have Dell Inspiron 1300 with ICH6 sound card & modem. With SuSE 10.1 and conexant modem driver it sounds fine, but I can't make mic work well. It somehow works but at a very low level, so I can't use it with krec or Skype. In kmixer there is no slide for increasing the mic level. I've tried installing alsa 1.0.12 but it doesn't help.

In alsamixer there is a slide with label 'mic', but it can't be increased. What is 'alsactl'?

alsactl just saves alsa settings.

as far as your problem goes, you might try downloading a newer kernel, or the newest alsa. There might be a driver fix for it. I'm using a dell inspiron 1100 on slackware with kernel 2.6.16
