Unhappy mic problems


Has anyone been able to get their mic working in slak 10
if so how

I am using oss and all the modules seem to be loaded as i do modprobe cmpci and all seems well.

Ive tried cat /dev/sound/audio and i get output on the console, if I leave the console listening and mute the mic the output stops, so im assuming the mic in is working but i just cant seem to get it to record anything!

Is there another module that is required for mic recording?

Also ive noticed that to get audacity to run I need to disable the sound system "This puzzles me" cause if the sound system is disabled shouldnt there be no sound at all, yet audacity works fine with the sound system disabled. Audacity doesnt work with the sound system enabled though.

mmm hope somebody can help here.

To get MIC or Line-In working or able to rec, you need to bring up the In-Gain level. Experiment abit with it, what is the best level for your audio source.
