I don't absolutely need Audacity, since other recorders are working,
but I'm confused at not getting Audacity to work. I checked the wiki
page and stopped the system sounds and did the other things
mentioned. Audacity would run and I could import saved tracks into
it, but I couldn't run xmms (for the audio stream) and run Audacity
at the same time. It gave a connection error. My understanding is
that it has to run alone. That's why I tried to get Jack working. I
thought it was necessary to get Audacity and xmms running at the same
time. Was I wrong about that?
