I have installed Bianca on an HP Pavilion DV6000 notebook computer with HDA Intel sound. It works really well except for recording audio. Audio works for playback of everything I have tried. Recording audio with Audacity or Gnome Sound Recorder not workingl. There is no option to choose from different input modes i.e. mic, line, system sound, etc.....
Does anyone have any idea what to do with this?
Has there been any update on a version of the ALSA driver that would work with the Intel hda?
It looks like I'm stuck a similar problem. I'm trying to get Cassandra going, and I can say that it has a 1.13 version of ALSA installed (but I still get no sound).
Try the latest release candidate from the alsa sound site. It fixed a good deal of my HP intel sound problems; better than the 1.13. See my How To on these Mint pages. It might help.
