Description of problem:
when trying to record audio from the via82cxxx sound card integrated
in the motherboard, I can only record silence, no matter what mixer
settings I use.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. provide some audio input, e.g. play a CD in the CD player
2. set the mixer so that CD is the recording device
3. record from /dev/dsp, by using sox or some other sound recording

Actual Results:  the recorded audio is plain silence.

Expected Results:  the recorded audio should contain the audio coming
in the channel set for recording by the mixer.

Additional info:

funny that the audio card works otherwise OK (e.g. I can play sound on
it, I can use the mixer to set volumes on different channels)

I tried getting input on different channels: line-in, mic, CD. I tried
to set the mixer to record on all possible channels. I tried to use
different mixers (aumix, gnome-mixer) and different recording programs
(sox, gnome-audio-recorder). all come to the same result: the recorded
audio was total silence.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
