Hi, all!

I have an Intel integrated audio card on my Gentoo laptop.
lspci | grep Audio
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) High Definition Audio Controller (rev 01)

I am able to use it to play music but unable to use the microphone for input.

I am using alsa sound system but my item: mic in alsamixer is empty. I can't set the mic at all.

emerge --info
