    Microphone not working in Mandriva 2006


    Hi all,

    I am new to this forum.
    I have installed skype in my linux pc (Mandriva 2006)-- Dell Latitude D620
    I am able to hear from others ..but others are not able to hear me
    I am using GNOME
    I have tried to record sound using Sound Recorder. But not working.

    I am not sure abt the internal configurations of the microphone.
    Let me know , is there any configurations required.

    amixer output is as follows,
    Simple mixer control 'Master',0
    Capabilities: pvolume pswitch
    Playback channels: Front Left - Front Right
    Limits: Playback 0 - 31
    Front Left: Playback 31 [100%] [on]
    Front Right: Playback 31 [100%] [on]
    Simple mixer control 'PCM',0
    Capabilities: pvolume
    Playback channels: Front Left - Front Right
    Limits: Playback 0 - 255
    Front Left: Playback 0 [0%]
    Front Right: Playback 0 [0%]
    Simple mixer control 'IEC958',0
    Capabilities: pswitch pswitch-joined
    Playback channels: Mono
    Mono: Playback [on]
    Simple mixer control 'Capture',0
    Capabilities: cvolume cswitch
    Capture channels: Front Left - Front Right
    Limits: Capture 0 - 15
    Front Left: Capture 8 [53%] [on]
    Front Right: Capture 8 [53%] [on]
    Simple mixer control 'Capture Mux',0
    Capabilities: volume

    Front Right:
    Simple mixer control 'Input Source',0
    Capabilities:

    when i run alsamixer, and mover to InputSource, the mic is not even active. I am not able to increase the sound.

    Card : HDA Intel SigmaTel STAC9200
    View : Playback
