    Re: Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide

    I have an Acer Extensa 4420 laptop. It has a tiny little pinhole with a mic icon beside it near the top of the screen. I also have a microphone port out the front. I tried different programs to record sound, but neither mic inputs are working. Anyone have any suggestions on what to try next before I go doing something scary like the following?

    I suggest upgrading ALSA if your laptop is a recent one. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=820959
    or maybe you just need to configure your alsa-base file: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...58&postcount=2

    I got it working. Evidently I had to play in alsamixer at command line, hit the Tab key to switch to Capture Mode, and then use arrow keys. I have it adjusted like:

    Front Mic Boost: 100
    Mic Boost: 50
    Capture: 0 <-- what's this?
    Capture 1: 0 <-- why a second one?
    Digital: 97 <-- what's this?
    Input Source: Mic
    Input Source 1: Mic <-- why a second one?

    This permits the mic on the laptop itself to record me fairly well. It has a good bit of static in the background, but somehow in playing with it I diminished that static slightly to something somewhat reasonable by the settings I have above.

    So it looks like I can use Ekiga Softphone now.

    BTW, for the record, this is what my input sound is running through:

    Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc SBx00 Azalia and it's running a Realtek ALC268 chip on it (according to alsamixer).

    Question Re: Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide

    I have a question. I need to do what's described in the "Configuring default soundcards..." section, but I have 2 sound cards with the exact same module name(both are snd_hda_intel.) So, how do I know which is which/set it as the default?

    Re: Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide

    I tried to follow the guide but I still have a problem. I have xubuntu 8.04 installed on an Eee PC 4G and I can't hear any sound. I tried those instructions to seek where the problem comes from

    botokely@trano:~$ aplay -l

    **** Liste des PLAYBACK périphériques ****
    carte 0: Intel [HDA Intel], périphérique 0 : ALC662 Analog [ALC662 Analog]
    Sous-périphériques: 1/1
    Sous-périphérique: #0: subdevice #0

    botokely@trano:~$ alsamixer

    alsamixer: function snd_mixer_load failed: No such file or directory
