Still having audio problems

As much as I like using Ubuntu, the main reason I need and want to use it I can't. It's so frustrating and sounds (no pun intended) so basic to me.

Al I need to do is record my radio show from a radio I have plugged into my iMac. That's right. For now, I am dual booting on my iMac until I can afford to buy a dedicated PC desktop just for Ubuntu.

I can't believe that there seems to be no way for me to record my shows from my radio. Works fine when I boot into the Mac side and even when I use Ubuntu using VMware Fusion. When I boot into Ubuntu directly, Audio In in the Sound preferences doesn't seem to work. No audio coming through when I try to record from the radio.

I posted before to other forums with no luck. I really hope that there is someone out there that can really help me with this. Very disconcerting considering all that Ubuntu has to offer!!.

Hi Drakeo,

The built in Mic on the iMac works fine in Ubuntu 10.10. It's the line in that is as dead as a door nail.
