I cannot get my sound to work correctly. System sounds work. I can play mp3's with Kaboodle. My problem is that I cannot get line-in to work. I have a cassette player attached to my line in, and try to record using Audacity. Audacity gets no input and nothing is sent to the speakers. Any ideas as to what could be wrong?
I am a newbie, so if I need to post something from a file to give you more info, let me know.

err, nevermind...answering a few sound questions and I had to look back. U said ur system sounds are working.
in a terminal. I think audacity needs /dev/dsp and i'm willing to bet it's not seeing yours. It's prob seeing /dev/dsp1, /dev/dsp2,etc.
In the mean time try typing
in a terminal, which will launch audacity and hopefully use arts to record.
Maybe someone a little more knowledgable about audacity will see this post and have a better answer. I've never used it before
It seems to me that the problem is outside of Audacity, since nothing from line-in gets to the speakers. Shouldn't merely having an input signal go through the card to the output? It does on my windows box.
