Well, I have an Inspiron 1525N using a Debian Etch AMD64 linux. The mic did
not work anyway even after having compile and install ALSA 1.16. So I
download, compile and install the linux 2.6.25-rc8 and now the mic work even
if the level is not very hight, it's now possible to use twonkle, skype or any
multimedia application. Only one thing does not work, the possibility to
record the lineout output.
