Sound system(microphone) woes on Suse 10.1

Postby rools » Wed Jun 28, 2006 9:58 am

My problem:

I have a Asus A8NE mobo with NForce 4 chipset.
I am trying to get my microphone to work under SUSE10.1
Sound playback works fine though.

I am using the snd-intel driver, have tried to install the nvaudio driver but compiling the kernel module fails for this reason:
Code: Select all
   include2/asm/io.h: In function ‘check_signature’:
   include2/asm/io.h:258: warning: wrong type argument to increment

   /main] Error 2
   make[2]: *** [modules] Error 2
-> Error.
ERROR: The NVIDIA kernel module was not created.

I don't mind using the snd-intel driver as long as I can get my mic working but I can't.

I have made the correct settings in alsamixer for the mic,
I've set my /dev/dsp permissions to read & write by all,
changed the gstreamer input from ALSA to OSS and back and still nothing.

If I set my mic volume up in alsamixer I can hear when I blow into the mic.

I know this mic works as I have been using it on my Mandriva 2005 install for some time now.

The output from lsmod | grep snd is:
Code: Select all
snd_pcm_oss            42752  0
snd_mixer_oss          16512  1 snd_pcm_oss

soundcore               8672  1 snd

and my /etc/modprobe.d/sound is:
Code: Select all
options snd-intel8x0 enable=1 index=0
alias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0

If anyone has experience a similar problem or can point me in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it.
