Audacity is kinda-sorta working for me. I've gotten it to play and record _once_ in three boots so far. I believe it's a load sequence issue involving ALSA and Jack. I've checked the forums and gotten a few hints for resolution. Apparently it's not that rare an issue. We'll see how well that goes. Okay, I've downloaded the tarball, (jokosher-0.9.tar.tar). Just throw it on the drive and try "tar -xvf jokosher-0.9.tar.tar"??? [Why yes, I *am* that much of a n00b! Thanks for asking.] Cheers, RonL.
