I just managed to get Audacity compiled on my Mandrake 9.0RC3 box - this =
the first time I've tried to use the program.
I'm trying to record an LP into MP3/Ogg but when I press the record butto=
just get a flat line signal. I've checked using a variety of mixers that=
line-in is set to be the source for recording, disabled artsd, been able =
record with another program (even with artsd running), but it's just not=20
working with Audacity.
The program only allows recording from /dev/dsp and:

what could I be doing wrong?

Cause, as you are on a Mandrake, you probably are on kde
or gnome that both hangs the sound device especially for
their sounds and esd(gnome) or artsd(kde) complient apps.
Audiacity is standalone and has not currently a esd or
artsd input/output. To record/play, you have to kill the
"esd" daemon (gnome) or the "artsd" daemon (kde), then the
sound device will be release for audacity.
nicer ways are wrapper scripts to put, say "esd" in a
#end of script
and there could be a rather same script for artsd (kde)
with the "artsshell" command (see man page)
