EMU10K1, ALSA-1.06, microphone does not work


I run SUSE9.1 prof., alsa-1.06, with soundcard emu10k1. The sound is working fine except that I cannot get the microphone to work. 'lsmod' outputs this.
In the ALSA mixer GUI version, there are some symbols on top of the volume bar, among other things to dots which are white on other bars, but red for the mic. Any export who understands whats wrong?

I'm also having microphone problem so take my
answer with a grain of salt. I've seen some people
solve the problem by changing to "full duplex" in
the control center. Also, many default settings are zero
and need to be set higher - this can be changed in
your sound mixer (alsamixer or Kmix).

If that doesn't do the job, I can't help (rather, I need help).

Hi Sheng-Chieh, I tried all this, but I am not knowleadable enough to solve the issues. I tried GUIalsamixer and command line alsamixer. And the setting in the control center tab "Hardware" is Advanced Linux Sound Architecture", Full duplex is setand "Select MIDI device" is set to EMU10k1 MPU-401 (UART) -Rawmidi - 0 EMU10k1 (UART) ALSA device.

When you open KmIx and switch to the "Input" tab, do you have "glowing" red button under the Mic option? If not then make it glow , you can hen use the rec utility to test it

rec -d /dev/dsp test.wav
