Audacity Problem

Hey all, this is a rare occasion, me asking help with audio ohmy.gif   wink.gif

I've installed Audacity to do some audio-editing, but every time I open Audacity, I am greeted with a pop-up window with the following message:

"There was an error initializing the audio i/o layer.
You will not be able to play or record audio.

Error: Host Error."

I have an nForce2 chipset (with the Intel8x0 alsa driver), and I can play audio, I'm listening to Sizzla at this very moment  biggrin.gif

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Well, I've somehow sorted my problem out (for the time being at least). It could well be that another audio application of stealing access to the sound card before Audacity could get it's hands on it (most likely me playing music on XMMS). I no longer get this message unless I have XMMS playing audio...or any other audio player for that matter. I get some stupid little error when clicking the "record" button in Audacity...but seing as I don't have a Mic, then I couldn't really care at this point in time. But is something I'd like to see resolved...but I may be back to that one later. smile.gif
