Configuration : Lenovo 3000 N100 laptop with Intel HDA / Anlog Devices AD1986A soundcard running CentOS5.0 with 2.6.18-8.1.8.el5 kernel ( uses 1.0.12rc1 based alsa driver ).
The driver works with the model=laptop-eapd option except for a few things :
- Plugging in an external headset will not mute the internal speakers ( has to be done
manually in alsa-mixer )
That's an unimplemented feature. It shouldn't be too hard to add it if you help debugging well (i.e. you can build and test drivers from HG tree without hitch).
Ok - I'm willing to give it a try. Do I need development version of theh library and the utilities as well ?
Recommended, but not mandatory.
- The PC speaker ( bell ) appears to be permanently muted.
Partly intended (as I dislike it ;)
It is nice to have the option ...
Another opinion :)
- The external microphone input does not appear to be working no matter what I do.
Do you mean for recording or analog loopback?
Yes - for recording. I was hoping to get it to work well enough to use skype -
Note that recording and analog-loopback are different things.
- When recording from the internal microphone the level is very, very low and almost
drowns in static noise.
There are "Mic Boost" and "Front Mic Boost" mixer volumes.
Not with model=laptop-eapd - my alas mixer only shows Master, PCM, Mic, Capture, Mix, External Amp and Internal Amp
The Mic Boost control was added _after_ 1.0.14 release. (Correction in the above text: Front Mic Boost doesn't exist for AD1986A but for other codec.)
So, please try HG version first. Then let's debug further.
