Looking @ your amixer output, all the capture elements are muted and/or
zeroed. Try adjusting them.

Got internal mic working but still does not work with external mic in microphone jack. the Pulse control only sees one mic. Switching analog to digital or mic in to line in alsamixer.

Does installing linux-backports-modules-alsa-karmic resolve this symptom?

Haven't tried backports, but I fixed it via alsamixer.

Definitely should be a way to switch between this in the gui Sound Preferences dialog though.
