Did you install the entire disc or did you chose Expert Install? Knowing that would be helpful. Mine says it's using portaudio v19. Try making sure that that package is installed.

portaudio is installed but none of the device choices either play or record works.

Perhaps the problem is that I'm Using an Intel sound card instead of Creative Labs.  But this sound card has worked in the past with Audacity on other Distrobutions , So there must be something I can do to make it work in VL 5.9 Also.  Just haven't found it yet.. Anyone got it working with and Intel Sound system?
Happy New Year to all Vler's

Yep, it's working for me on an intel. I found that if I change the Edit->Preferences->Audio I/O and tell it to use alsa:surround51, I get the same error as you. However, switching back to default works fine. Also you may want to check the project samplerate (In the lower left hand corner) and see if that has anything to do with it. Let me know!

Hi Dweeberkitty,

Here are the Options that Edit>Preferences>I/O give me
Record  OSS: /dev/dsp
              ALSA: Intel 82801AA-ICH: Intel 82801AA-ICH (HW: 0,0)
              ALSA: Intel 82801AA-ICH: Intel 82801AA-ICH - MIC ADC (HW: 0,1)
              ALSA: spdif
              ALSA: default
              JACK: Audio Connection Kit: Alsa_pcm
I have tried them all and none work
Have also tried every project rate and it make no difference.

don't know what else to try

kc1di,
can you try this kernel: http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-5.9/kernels/kernel-2.6.22.15ck2-i586-1vl59.tlz
and modules: http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-5.9/kernels/kernel-modules-2.6.22.15ck2-i586-1vl59.tlz
maybe the in kernel alsa drivers will work better for your soundcard
Will try it see what happens.
stand by


Did not seem to make any difference.
Thanks for trying

That is the strangest thing. It works great for me. Try installing the latest RC1. I think I rebuilt Audacity to use wxGTK-2.8.7. Give it a try. Beyond that, the only thing I can think of is maybe it's a bug in Audacity. This is a development version after all.

Havent ever tried Atunes before, but at a first glance it looks like Amarok on steroids

A new jack has been released yesterday : http://jackaudio.org/node/17

It seems like a lot has changed.

I have not tested it yet, so I have no idea if programs compiled against jack 0.103 will work with jack 0.109. Since the change is only a minor number, I guess it should be backwards compatible. 
Most music on my soundcloud page was arranged in programs running on VL.

Thank you will give it a try. I specifically need Mp3 encoding.
