Bug Description

I am running lucid with all the updates on a Lenovo 3000 v100 with the following sound card (driver: snd-hda-intel):

00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation N10/ICH 7 Family High Definition Audio Controller (rev 02)

00:1b.0 0403: 8086:27d8 (rev 02)
 Subsystem: 17aa:3bfd

In gnome-volume-control, the Internal Microphone (iMic) is not listed as a possible input device port. Only "Microphone" (Mic in alsamixer) and "Line-in" (Line in alsamixer) are available. In alsamixer, I can (after hitting F5 to see all controls) set the input source to "iMic" and then the microphone works fine, but not in gnome-volume-control. Following a suggestion on another bug report, I installed linux-backports-modules-alsa-2.6.32-23-generic, but this did not automatically determine the microphone to use or let me choose iMic in gnome-volume-control.

Is there a way to fix this?

David Kaplan (dmkaplan) wrote :

I would add the gnome-alsamixer does not allow me to choose the input source (i.e., input source is just a check box in gnome-alsamixer and there is no way to attach an input source to a particular device).

Thanks for reporting this bug! For some reason this model is labeled "iMic" instead of "Int Mic", so PulseAudio does not pick it up as a microphone input. I've sent a report upstream, and assuming it is merged, you should have a fixed version in https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Audio/InstallingLinuxAlsaDriverModules in a few days from now.

This is a big help. Now, in gnome volume control, I have Line, Microphone 1 and Microphone 2 (the internal mic) as possible connectors. "External Microphone" and "Internal Microphone" would be easier, but this works. Thanks.

This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed' to 'verification-done'.

If verification is not done by Thursday, November 11, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!

David Kaplan (dmkaplan) wrote :

Would you mind telling me exactly which package I should install to test this? I looked at proposed, but didn't see the right kernel version. Perhaps I am not using aptitude correctly (which I very seldomly use). NOTE: I am using lucid, not maverick.

Thanks.

Steve Conklin (sconklin) wrote :

You should install the "linux" package, which contains the kernel. For instructions on how to enable the -proposed archive, see here:

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed

Steve Conklin (sconklin) wrote :

Due to national holidays, the deadline for verification of fixes for the -proposed kernel has been extended thru Monday, November 15th.

If verification that this bug is fixed by the -proposed kernel has not occurred by that date, the change will be reverted and this bug will be set to incomplete.

If you have tested the kernel in -proposed and found that it fixes the bug on the original hardware, please change the bug tag "verification-needed" to "verification-done".

The new stable kernel release process under which these actions are being taken is still being refined, and is documented here:

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/StableReleaseCadence

Discussions about the new process tend to take place in #ubuntu-kernel on IRC, so please contribute to the discussion there if you would like.

Thank you!

David Kaplan (dmkaplan) wrote :

I installed linux/lucid-proposed and it works for me (aptitude initially complained about dependencies, but seems to have figured things out). I still have Line, Microphone 1 and Microphone 2 as sound input options instead of Line, external Microphone and Internal Microphone, which would be easier, but this is workable.

Cheers,
David
