Hope there is some advice out there.
I have an Asus Eee 1201n which is running Karmic very well, had a couple of issues with wireless but thanks to Realtek support for Linux they released a driver that works perfectly with more recent kernels (2.6.31-20). Quick side note, if you are running this netbook do yourself a favor and try "rtl8192se_linux_2.6.0015.0127.2010" before you use NDISWrapper etc.
OK, back on topic. Last thing I have left is the built-in microphone (NVIDIA ION HD Audio). GNOME Alsa Mixer sees it, so does the GNOME sound panel, Skype sees it as well but no go. I have tried Alsa backports to no result. There is a thread in these forums for a script (Alsa upgrade script) and although I thank the dude who wrote it I am paranoid as he explicitly says:
"The script is not in line with Debian/Ubuntu rules for package handling. It just overwrites existing files. You won't see any changes on the ALSA package-ids within Synaptic!"
And this scares me just a bit. I am about to try this script as I am just plain tired of Skype with a BT headset (my wife calls me a cyborg) so before I kick it off I thought I would ping the "Gurus" and see if there are any other suggestions out there.
Thanks in advance!
Solved... Installed the pulseaudio utility and set the 2nd mic channel to 0.
