Hi Every one,
I am new to linux. I have loaded Debian Lenny ver-5.0.7 on my Acer Extensa 4620 laptop (Intel Centrino Duo; Intel 945 chipset; 1GB ram; 80GB HDD and DVD RW). I tried Open SuSE but soon switched to Debian because of its very open nature. I managed to install some of the non free items like adobe flash player 10.2.152, third party softwares like Skype and Firefox.
My web cam is working fine.
I am facing problem with the audio. Playback is fine. I am not able to capture the audio either from the on board mic or from the external mic and line inputs (They were working fine with windows).
The second problem that I am facing is I am not able to play VCDs on.
I have installed available codecs and files like gstreamer, ffmpeg and libdvdcss2 which are available from the repositories. (The sources are pointed to the main server and third party sources including debian-multimedia non free.
The available VLC player(ver 0.8.6) is also installed.
Both totem and vlc are playing all video files, non encrypted DVDs and commercial DVDs of my region.
But neither is playing VCDs.
Please some one help me with this.
