Here's what I found by searching Google for "linux record sound": http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=676190

Is that what you want? Why do you want it? The more we know about what you're trying to do, the better we can give advice

If you want to record audio that's streamed to you over the intertubes but your application doesn't support saving it, try using mplayer with the -dumpstream option; that captures just that stream, not every sound being played on your system.

Thank you jonaskoelker for your reply . I think my question wasn't clear enough . What i am trying to do is basically to make a beeping sound from both the internal speaker and from the sound card simultaneously.


Thank you

When you say "from the sound card", I take it you mean the speakers you hook up to the sound card. Correct?
Also, you're just trying to create sounds on your own, and not alter how sound is played by existing applications. Correct?

I would think the capability to output on both sets of speakers is hardware-dependent. Please dump the most verbose output of lshw and lspci as you can (feel free to sanitize); do a quickie read of --help and man to see how it's done. Then maybe someone else can take over.

Hint: place a link to your most important unsolved problem in your sig. More eyeballs = faster fixes
