The ultimate goal is to covert old analog recordings to digital, sounds easy enough and I figure I'll try the package "phonoripper" (
My system as a 1/8 phono jack that is marked "line-in", connected the
line output of my (known working) source to this port and I get
nothing, of course I'm assuming I could turn up the volume of the
capture port and hear something. I would have thought I'd see a
line-in tab or something similar.
So I'm guessing that Fedora (this is core 6) is not properly
recognizing my audio chipset fully. The Motherboard is an Intel
DG965RYCK and according to Intel's docs the audio subsystem consists
of an Intel 82801HB ICH8 and a Sigmatel STAC9227 audio codec.
Audio playback (e.g. mplayer output) seems to work fine, the audio
configurator does recognize the audio chipset properly as:
      Vendor:     Intel Corporation
      Model:      82801H (ICH8 Family) HD Audio Controller
      Module:     snd-hda-intel

The PCM device shows 2 options, STAC92xx Analog or STAC92xx Digital. If I choose digital I don't get any sound (not surprising I'm using all analog audio devices) and analog works fine.
under the Gnome/GStreamer-based volume control I have two tabs,
playback which has only "volume" and one other tab, capture, this tab
shows "Digital-1" for the slider nothing else.
/etc/modprobe.conf (created at configure) shows the following:
   alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel
   options snd-card-0 index=0
   options snd-hda-intel index=0
remove snd-hda-intel { /usr/sbin/alsactl store 0 >/dev/null 2>&1 || : ; }; /sbin
   /modprobe -r --ignore-remove snd-hda-intel

lastly an lsmod | grep snd shows the following:
snd_hda_intel          53725  4
snd_hda_codec         223681  1 snd_hda_intel
snd_seq_dummy          37317  0

soundcore              44769  4 snd
snd_page_alloc         44113  2 snd_hda_intel,snd_pcm

Ok, so what am I missing?

TIA, Jeff

Well I keep replying to my own posts, it appears as if I am running into a problem with alsa, not sure if its a configuration issue or a bug, hopefully its the former rather than the latter.
any of the alsa mixers display errors when attempting to start them.
Using "alsactl store" provides the following error "alsactl:
get_control:149: Cannot read control info '2,0,0,Capture Volume,0':
Invalid argument"
suggestions appreciated.

TIA Jeff
