Sorry, that's pretty much 0 for 2 on your last 2 questions...

I'd open up a mixer and see if the mic is on. What program are you using to record it, or is this something else? Is your mic plugged in? And is it plugged into the mic port?

Cool

yes yes yes... i think the plug with the microphone on it is the mic plug and my mic work, then i set record source to microphone, and turn as loud as it can, but nothing can be recorded, then when i switch to cd and play music from cd, it received sound....oh and i use krec.... it is really weird

Sorry, but I don't have krec installed. However, try something else. Something like grecord. Check to make sure it's not a problem with your program, do this by trying other programs when available.

I'd also switch window managers/desktop environments to make sure it's not a problem with something from there either.

Cool

open up kmix and check the level of your mic. By default it is completely muted...If you can't find it in the kmenu (multimedia) then just type 'kmix' on the command line.

I mean to try something like fluxbox, Gnome, blackbox, xfce... Something other than the one you are using (assuming KDE from the programs you are using). And try a non-KDE program not krec or krecord, but rather grecord or Voice App

Cool

You just recreate the symlink if that's what you are asking:
OHHH, you mean to recreate /dev/mixer well, I personally suck at mknod, I tend to suggest using MAKEDEV to recreate devices. Look for it on your slack CD.

Cool
