krec won't record on laptop - tried *everything* - mandrake 9.1
again, what appears to be a common complaint, i have read the threads.
i get sound from my speakers when i speak into the mic (including feedback), but meter indicates no sound, and i get a file with no sound.
i have tweaked all my settings in aumix and kmix and etc., my soundcard seems to work fine.
any suggestions about a simple alternative to krec? i can't find anything out there, really, besides full studio stuff.
all i want is simple wav files. (yes, i know krec only create raw files).
any help is greatly appreciated.
