I recently installed the latest Sabayon and so far I am blown away by almost everything working out of the box and fast, including graphics drivers, flash, codecs ...
But as usual there is one thing that I can not get right - the sound. Oh how I hate linux when it comes to sound! And this time, at least output is working fine, but I need the damn mic as well.
I have a Creative X-Fi Titanium soundcard and the system recognizes it as such (X-Fi Titanium Series [Emu20k2]). I can easily switch modes from analog stereo to 4.0 to 5.1, you name it, and it seems to work well. But on the recording tab of the mixer I can only see one "input", labeled "Analog Stereo" which is actually just the loopback from the stereo output. The actual line-in/microphone jack is not listed anywhere and thus I can't record anything from it.
I have not looked into this fancy pulse audio stuff much yet and thus can't really tell anything more really, but i didn't dare to just uninstall it (who knows what else might break if i did that?).
Here's how it looks in pavucontrol:
Any ideas on how to get the mic working?
