OK, time for a kernel update.

Run

Code:
gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
add this line to the end:

Code:
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ gutsy main restricted
and save & close. Run

Code:
sudo apt-get update
Code:
sudo apt-get -y install linux linux-generic linux-headers-generic linux-image-generic linux-restricted-modules-generic
Now the new kernel is installed (alongside your original one), so remove the repository from the list by running:

Code:
gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
deleting that last line and save. Run

Code:
sudo apt-get update
And reboot. The new kernel should be an option at boot. If recording still doesn't work, then something else is hosed.

Is this an option that I am supposed to be able to choose from when booting? I rebooted & didn't get that, it just rebooted normally like always does.

Anyway, the recording didn't work I tried audacity first, settings to OSS & ALSA, both ways. When set to ALSA, I get;

"Error while opening sound device. Please check the input device settings & the project sample rate."

GNUSound sends the pc back to the login screen when trying to run that. Don't know what else to do; Heck, I didn't even understand what I've done this far!

With the forthcoming Catalyst 7.9 software release in September, AMD will add Linux support for the ATI Radeon™ HD 2000 series of graphics processors. The Radeon HD 2000 series offer a number of compelling new features for Linux users including AMD’s patented unified shader architecture.
A lot of linux user will be happy to hear that. And more companies to follow after that, hopefully?

Beware, Leopard Seal!

Just an update here; Installed 7.10 in hopes that the sound capture issue would be resolved - it wasn't. Same issue as all along. I ran the tests under sound preferences, & sound capture fails, no matter which audio device I enable. I guess it is a hardware issue with my system. I did have an old creative sound card lying around, which I installed & linux didn't recognize it.

Was suggested to me to try ubuntu studio; I did that, after some quirky install issues (the vid. card, nvidia chipset gave me some problems) but did get it rolling finally. The system is a tad "slower" now, maybe because of the "bloat" of studio? Or maybe because there is other things going on because of the issue I had at first install with the vid. card.

At any rate, audio capture still does not work. I have this issue posted on 6 different Linux forums, sound issues are common, esp. capturing...it seems. My options at this point;

Install another sound card(s) in hopes that one will eventually work
Dual boot w/ win xp
Dump this OS & don't look back


Not my intention to "bash" this OS, but I feel honesty is important with this situation; Others should have an idea what they may be in for if they decide to jump on board with the penguin.

I really believe that it has to be a card driver issue, I would try the card in another machine to see if the OS is the real issue. Just a humble thought.

This mobo has onboard sound; I have tried an older soundblaster in this pc, but it wasn't recognized.

It is probably an ac 97 compatible, I issuses wit the one on my wife computer,the mic level is very low, going to try a different mic first the a new audio card. Think it is a driver issue, she was downloading drivers from WOW,then the audio card quit working. What a real pia.

Posted this all over the linux forums - Got some suggestions, but no one has been able to fix. Sound issues seem to be a big hassle with linux.

I am unable to capture any audio stream; From radio station websites, or what I am playing through the speakers, etc. I can hear everything just fine, but can't record anything, using a program such as audacity, etc.I have an ASUS A8V-VM SE mainboard w/ onboard sound.

When I do a test for sound capture in sound preferences, this is what I get; No matter which device I choose under capture, I still get the same error. Does this make sense to anyone?



Fortunately, everything else seems to work! Several different printers, networking is a breeze, even my Canon Powershot G5 is recognized when I plug it in & I am able to easily transfer & edit pics. I haven't tried capturing any vid yet from a vcr/dvd player/camcorder. I should try that... YAY! Thank God for small miracles, I guess.

PROBLEM SOLVED! Turns out linux didn't really care for my onboard sound card. I installed a Diamond 7.1, sound capture works now, Finally!

However, I just now found that my Canon G5 Powershot Camera will not transfer pics. It worked in the 7.04 vers. just fine, but not in 7.10.

Back to the drawing board
