Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I would like to record or capture audio and I've read a bit about using the AlsaMixer. I tried the settings suggested but when I click on the record button in Audacity, I get the following message (while I'm playing the music I would like to record):
"Error initializing audio i/o layer. You will not be able to play or record audio. Host error"
I also get the message:
"Error while opening sound device. Please check the input device settings and the project sample rate."
I've seen that the input device is /dev/dsp and there are no other choices. it's the same as the playback device.
In AlsaMixer, it says that it is set to Capture All.

$PATH is used to define path variables. When you type the command ' $PATH ' it will show the directories used in path. So all you need to do is verify that say if lame is at /usr/bin/lame that one of the path variables is /usr/bin.
My fault the chmod command is in /bin and not /sbin. I just perfer to use full path to commands so there is no issues when one uses su or su -.
When I had sound problems after an update, I had my husband install a soundcard that we had laying around and I installed the newest Alsa sound driver.
I just tried to record from the internet radio today and found that I can now capture sound.
I guess all it took was to have a soundcard installed rather than trying to use the "onboard" sound that comes on the motherboard.
