go2

kcontrol : sound & multimedia : sound system : hardware

at the bottom you will see selections of the midi device and it's wrappers.

under 'general' (opposite of hardware button at top) you will find a button to test sound or midi

Hmmm. MIDI is for controlling MIDI keyboards and such. Simple microphone use is not MIDI. Open your audio control app such as kmix, or whatever your distro is using, and make certain the microphone input is enabled and the volume slider is up.

i'm a little confused.. slackware is not a 'newbie' friendly disto.

maybe you should get some of the basics down with a less demanding os like suse or mandy.

i know someone will say that these questions are not 'slack' specific, but installing and getting even the basic things like sound and video in distros like slackware require alot time, knowledge and patients..

so YES these questions are 'slackware' specific since the poster will need to become familiar with the different way that slack deals with this 'basic' issues.

this is NOT meant to be a mean or 'flame' post..

it is JUST my opinion as to where the poster or this thread belongs (or at least stickied if he/she wants to stick with slack.
