Problem recording sound with Audacity 1.2


Hello. I've installed Audacity 1.2 and I've got sound working properly on my system.

I have NVIDIA NForce2 Soundstorm (on-board) sound on my A7N8X-E motherboard and I can listen to the music through the speakers when I connect my music system to my Line-in jack.

However when I record music, Audacity produces all kinds of strange sounds. I have correctly set the input to Line-in.

I have installed the NFORCE_AUDIO drivers from the NVidia website. Do you think that this driver is causing problems with Audacity? How do I get recording to work correctly from within Linux?

Note: I can record music perfectly when I am working in Windows.

This seems to be a problem specific to Audacity 1.2. I could record sounds properly using Gnome's Sound Recorder utility. But I need a more powerful tool than Sound Recorder.

Anybody with any suggestions?

The only thing I can think of is maybe check your mixer to see that your levels are not maxed out. I don't know anything beyond that.

Well, GNome's sound recorder utility works fine. But I need the added power of being able to edit the sound clips. Any other sound recording utility in Linux that uses OSS?

Problem solved! It seems that Audacity has problems with NForce chipset sound drivers (with the nvsound module loaded).
I reconfigured the system to work with the generic sound drivers now and it works.
