Question How to have a microphone working under VMWARE 4?

Has anyone had success getting their microphone to work under VMWARE 4?

I run Mandrake 10 with vmware 4.05 running XP as a guest system. Everything works perfectly except I don't understand how to get the microphone to emulate pcm as required by VMWARE.

In searching News Groups and forumns I have seen similar questions asked but the only replies I have seen say yes they have it working but they never say how.

I imagine I either have to alter the kernel or ALSA somehow so that the simulated sound card receives the microphone input as pcm.

Thanks in advance,
Larry Keenan


microphone, vmware
