When I start audacity I get the following erro message:
There was an error initializing the audio.
You will not be able to play or record audio.
Error: Host error
If I go to File > Preferences, there is an audio i/o tab but I cannot select any option and so can't make any changes.
I suspect the trouble is related to the fact that I use Gnome and I start the sound server at start-up. Xmms produces a sound-related error if I use the aRts output plug-in (not with ALSA or OSS) and so I was looking for a way to tell Audacity which output method to use.
The funny thing is that when I fist installed audacity it worked fine (of course I don't remember the output settings and since then the only change I can think of I made was adding mp3 output support.
What can I do to find the source of my problem and solve it?
