what's wrong with this sound recording?


I've got Aurox 11.0, it's based on Fedora Core 3. And when I try to record sound from microphone or from TV there is silence. I tried KRec installed with distro, Audacity (compiled it) and streamer.
There is sound, I can play mp3 and watch TV with sound I can't only record it. Streamer records only video and at the end of recording following error shows up:

avi / video: MJPEG (AVI) / audio: 16bit stereo (LE)
oss: read: Input/output error0], a/v: -0.00s [0]
I can hear sound from microphone but, in KRec, volume bar shows silence. When I record file in KRec and then play it all I get is silence... What's wrong?.

Post .wav recorder

You have to use a .wav recording program, put it on record, and then start singing, or whatever into the mic.

DO you have mic input turned on in software? Are you using alsa? What does it say in alsamixer?

I will name only inputs/outputs that are turned off in alsamixer and entries that have only settings (no volume control):
Surround: Shared
Headphon: volume 00
Line Jac: description is MM and there is no volume bar above it
Mic Boos: volume 00
Mic: Mic1
IEC958: description MM, no volume bar
IEC958 0: volume 00
IEC958 P: AC-Link
Channel: 2ch
Downmix: Off
Exchange: volume 00
External: volume 00
Input So: Input 1
Input So: Input 1
Spread F: volume 00
Stereo M: volume 00

The rest has no null values (volume is set to some value).
All named above settings and null volume values can't be changed.

Yes I use Alsa. As I wrote in my first post I can hear sound from microphone, but I can't record it.
