Sound recording: can record my voice once

Aspire 5100
Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc SB450 HDA Audio (rev 01)

after I got crazy trying to make working the alsa support for my Hda_intel( I could hear sound, hear my Micro but not record my voice) I switched to Oss system to record my voice. It works but just once and for few seconds. I need to restart the computer to record again.

Could you run this script and post the link? I'd like to see your alsa configuration. It is possible that your system simply hasn't been added to the alsa driver yet. It's hard for us developers to keep up.

The Intel HD Audio is more of a bus specification than an actual device. On that bus, there is usually a sound chip, and in laptops, a modem (soft modem). There are currently 5 major manufacturers of sound chips for this bus, and each manufacturer has multiple chips. To make it even more confusing, each system manufacturer (Acer in your case) can add the same chip to all of their different motherboards, and each board will require a different configuration. For example, Intel released 20 motherboards with the exact same audio chip and the exact same configuration, but each has a different identification (pci subsystem ID). More work for us.
