Description Daryll 2007-05-16 06:00:29 UTC
I've got an HP dv9000 laptop with Intel HD audio. There are built in stereo
microphones in the display, as well as an external microphone input.

I've tried audacity, cat /dev/dsp, ekiga, gizmo. None of them provide audio
input using either the internal microphones or an external headset. 

I've checked alsamixer and the gain is set high and the microphones are not muted.

Audacity allows me to select among the various input devices, but none of them
register any audio input.

I suppose more of this would be make a less lame bug report:

Linux ninja 2.6.21-1.3149.fc7 #1 SMP Fri May 11 12:12:11 EDT 2007 i686 i686 i386

Audio appears to be working in the updates-testing kernel I
still have two Int:Mic choices. One works and one doesn't, but at least that's

Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2008-04-04 00:43:17 UTC
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.

If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.

The process we're following is outlined here:

We will be following the process here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this
doesn't happen again.

Works in current Fedora 8 kernels.
