I've been running PCLinuxOs 2007 on my desktop for the past year and just installed OpenSUSE on my hp laptop.Kmix in PCLinux presents three tabs: input, output, and switches. These tabs aren't present in the kmix mixer window I see in SUSE. What is happening is when I speak into the microphone I'm hearing myself through the speakers.... very annoying when on Skype. I addressed this on my desktop by turning the mic setting under the output tab all the way down. Anyone have a solution to my dilemma?
