I'm trying to use Skype beta 1.4.0.99, under Fedora 7. My sound setup is : ALSA driver 1.0.14, with card VIA 8235       and chip Realtek ALC650F.

Besides the fact that I often have to go to the mixer to set things up properly, I find that even with Mic Boost (+20db) on, the sound is just not loud enough. People at the other end have trouble hearing, unless I talk very loudly.

Is there any way to increase the amount of Mic Boost ?

Yours, Mike H...
