> Package: alsa-base
> Version: 1.0.11-2
> Severity: normal
> When using ALSA you can not choose an appropriate source to record a sound and
> you can not adjust the volume to record.
> If you check the source CD you can not record any sound (I used Audacity
> to record). When using only alsamixergui you can not record anything.
> When you also use kmix then you can also check "Capture". Then you can record
> sound, but the volume can not be adjusted with any slider of alsamixer or kmix.
> Moreover, both CD and Capture are then checked (which shouldn't be possible).
> When I do use kernel 2.6.12 and the OSS driver via82cxxx (and via82cxxx_audio)
> (and not ALSA) everything behaves as it should. In stead of "Capture" then I 
> have "IGain". This source can be checked for recording. When using ALSA the
> source "Capture" can not be checked in alsamixergui, although it can be checked

> I do not know where the problem is really located, but I suppose that ALSA is

> It concerns the Analog Devices chip AD1885, the card is VIA 82C686A/B rev20.

> Versions of packages alsa-base recommends:

Please install alsa-utils and try again.


  Never make anything simple and efficient when a way 
  can be found to make it complex and wonderful ;-)
