    Thanks rokytnji, I've checked asound.state file but values was already set to recommended ones. I've played with settings a bit but microphone still record some strange noise instead of sound.

    I've been running puppy linux on my Eee 900 for a couple of years and it seems to handle the audio in/out ok. Only ~110mb and will run from USB so it would be quick/easy to test how it works for you.

    Also have been impressed with antix on my Dell laptops.

    hi y'all, and CellarDweller in particular:

    as of yesterday night, I'm runnung lubuntu 11.10 on my eee 1015b.

    sound works -- after bringing up alsamixer and selecting the actual sound card instead of the generic default; and I had to do the same again in skype (bring up the audio options and select a different device).

    same for the mic: it works in skype after selecting a different device. there's still a little static crackle though.

    the video (again: within skype) is much improved, too. it was slow in easypeasy.

    I have to do more testing, but it looks promising so far.

    hi, i figured out a little more on the audio/sound issue: it seems that the graphics card includes enough audio stuff (for HDMI?) to be recognized for a sound card.

    to make the sound card the default sound device, i added a new file "alsa.conf" in /etc/modprobe.d that reads
    alias sound-slot-0 snd-hda-intel
    alias sound-slot-0 snd-hda-intel
    options snd_hda_intel index=1
    i wish i remembered which website i learned this from, but i cannot find it again. anyway, hope it helps.
