I've got a NetBSD-1.4.1/i386 box with a back-port of the AC97 driver
submitted in PR 8644.  I'm running an Ensoniq AudioPCI card with this:

eap0 at pci0 dev 18 function 0: Ensoniq AudioPCI 97 (rev. 0x02)
eap0: interrupting at irq 15
audio0 at eap0: full duplex

I'm wondering how I can record audio with this--I'd like to record some
of my old LPs that I can't get in CD format...  I've compiled xmmix and
xwave.  I've got the line in coming from a stereo receiver and the
play-through is working just dandy.

Just reading from /dev/audio gets me static.  Not too surprising...  ;-)

With xmmix selecting the "Line" source as the only one active for "rec",
xwave records what looks like silence.

Am I taking the right approach?  Is this a bug in the AC97 changes?
Is anyone recording things on their eap device?
