    When I test my mic, I typically use a simple arecord command. ie something like
    arecord -d 10 myrecording.wav
    or
    arecord -d 10 -f cd secondrecording.wav
    where "-d 10" sets a 10 second recording. I then play back the recording with xine or mplayer or xmms (or any audio playback program).

    The benefit of such a simple test, is there is no other software inbetween, where there could a problem with the software (as opposed to the hardware configuration, or the mixer configuratin).

    Embedded mics are always difficult to debug. You did NOT say your openSUSE version . That can make a SIGNIFICANT difference in the advise given.

    For openSUSE-11.1, with your laptop connected to the internet, by opening a gnome-terminal or a kde konsole and twice copy and paste the following into that terminal/konsole
    Code:
    /usr/sbin/alsa-info.sh
    Run it the 1st time with root permissions. It will ask if you wish to do an update of the script. Select YES.

    Then run it again (as either a regular user or as root). This time it will diagnose your PC's hardware and software configuration for audio, and it will post its output on the Internet/web. It will give you the URL of the web site. Please post that URL here. JUST the URL.

    Also, please copy and paste the following commands one line at a time into a gnome-terminal or a konsole and post here the output:
    rpm -qa | grep alsa
    rpm -qa | grep pulse
    rpm -q libasound2
    uname -a
    cat /etc/modprobe.d/sound
    ... with that information I may be able to make a recommendation.
