The headphones and microphone on my Ubuntu 10.10 work fine. But when I start an audio conversation using
pidgin, my computer hangs, the microphone doesn't work, and I can't record anything.
I have tried
sudo alsa force-reload, I have installed
pavucontrol, but nothing works. I can't increase the volume of the headphones and master channel using
alsamixer though they are unmuted. (Everything works fine in Fedora and Windows XP.)
How do I fix this?
