I am writing this to help any poor soul who like me has spent hours trying to get his microphone to work. I am an Arch Linux user and Arch has excellent support. For instance the following website offers all kinds of help to get sound and recording to work: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php...roubleshooting

Another website that I found quite helpful is: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1703092

What to do when one of your installations goes missing on a multi-boot BIOS system

I have several multiboot systems (Arch, Fedora, Mint, Ubuntu, etc.). On each I have chosen to make Fedora the "master" distro; that is the distro that controls grub. On occasion, after a system upgrade when Fedora updates the kernel, I "lose" one of my installations -- usually Arch Linux.

With the help of linux forums and especially the pendrivelinux.com site (booting linux isos with grub2) I have been able to create a usb drive with over twenty utilities and linux distributions. Recently I was toying with fedora 17/18. Although I can boot fedora live isos 16/17/18 from a usb thumb drive, I have not been successful at setting up fedora so that it is persistent (i.e., keeping any changes made to the system like adding applications).

While playing around with fedora,...
