If it use to work under Linux but no longer, are sure you hardware is ok. Have you ever been able to play any audio files? Also, you have to use mixer to adjust the input level and the recording source. See man mixer.
Sounds like a hardware or configuration issue.
Also there is a Windows version of the Audacity which I have used under Win2k it works nicely.
Oh, I guess that begs the question does the same hardware setup work under windows?? If it does, then expect it to be a configuration issue with your sound setup [I have no idea if your sound chip is support under Freebsd and I haven't used 5.1, So someone else will have to answer that].
Have you searched the freebsd mail archive of questions, stable, and current.
also does the device show up in your boot messages?
Sorry but in a rush,
I am using FreeBSD 5.1-p10, and recently I have need to record spoken sounds. I have installed Audacity from ports, as well as KRec, but neither of these works. Audacity shows nothing but silence for the waveforms. The KMix applet menu in my taskbar shows the microphone as having no volume, presumably because there's something not properly connecting somewhere software-wise. The microphone is plugged in.
My motherboard is an Albatron KX400+ Pro, and I am using its on-board audio, which is a 6-channel capable Realtek ALC650 chip. This chip responds beautifully to the 'device pcm' line being added to the kernel config file. It does nothing for the recording capabilities. A perusal of the handbook revealed almost no mention at all about recording audio, and certainly no mention I could find about actually doing it. It did mention adding 'device csa' for crystal sound cards, and I thought the chip was a crystal chip, but doing this has not had any effect.
A google search turns up nothing but a few other people asking the same question I have: How do you manage this? bsdforums.org has some stuff about this, but it's only talk that suggests that others have working audio recording in place; there is no mention of how to do this.
I have even tried plugging the microphone into the other possible jack.
I need to record a CD for someone, of me
speaking. I really don't want to do this under
Windows, and while Audacity under Linux worked
for a short time, it now only produces static. Something is obviously broken there.
Does anyone have any ideas how I can get this working? Have I left any information out that might have been useful? I appreciate your help on this matter.
