From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2 i686; en-US; rv:0.9.1)

Description of problem:
I have a AMD Duron 600Mhz+FIC AZ11e (KT133+Via686B) motherboard. The
onboard sound card works great for playing music. But when I try to record
something from the microphone/line jacks, I get noise totally uncorrelated
with input voice. I have made sure that the proper input is selected for
recording (using gmix), the gains are set properly etc.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot a AZ11e motherboard based box using stock RH7.1 kernel (also 2.4.7)
2. Select the recording source, gain using gmix.
3. Try recording using sox/grecord/dd if=/dev/dsp etc.


Actual Results:  It grabs very squeaky noise. That noise has no correlation
whatsoever with the input waveform. While actual recording is going on, I
can hear that the speakers are actually giving out amplified sound of what
I am trying to record. But nothing goes in the grabbed file.

Expected Results:  When I try to play back the recorded file, I should hear
back the same sounds that I recorded.

Additional info:

I have tried different microphones no difference.
I haven't tried out the thing under any other OS. I only have linux.
The box has 64MB of RAM.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
