EDIT: ok you can disregard everything below thats all done. I have new problems and i thought i may aswell post them in here rather than double posting. Anyway the issue is now, that even though i can hear stuff in both alsa and oss. And under alsa i can turn my mic and and i CAN hear myself taling through the mic, no voip or recording program actualy hears what i am saying. It's definatly working @ a hardware and driver level as like i said i can hear myself talk through the mic, i can here air blown across the mic etc. If i turn the mic volume down in alsa then i can nolonger here this so obviously my mic appears to be working @ the sound system level. But skype nor tea speak nor krecord pick up anything from my mick. It's liek there all configured to listen @ the wrong place? Anyone know whats going on or how to fix it?
Ok so i installed an audigy 2 zs i had from another computer in my FC5 computer and I maniged to play sound fine, but the weriod thing was: ONLY WITHH OSS. If i tired to start any sound system but oss, threaded oss, alsa, etc. i get an error. Anyway the error i get if i try to start alsa is:
erro: the device cant be opened for playback (no such device)
I am using the driver snd-emu10k1 and like i said i can play sound fine with oss, but i want to swap to alsa because my mic doesn't seem to work under oss. Anyone have any idea whats going on. I have the latest kernel as of 2 days ago and i just updated my alsa-lib and alsa-utils as of 3 seconds ago.
EDIT: ok i have no idea why but i just tried restarting the sound server again.. and it worked?? I got alsoa working now i think mic is too. Ill check back in 5 secs and post if it is so some mod and dlete this.
EDIT: mic is working aswell, fell free to delte this post, and sorry for posting too soon.
