I tried the aoss wrapper and it worked on my setup too -- although the
recording level was extremely low. But, at least it didn't hang.
Are you using the latest alsa version?
In any case, squeak out of the box should record in linux -- at the very
least, it should never, ever hang. I suppose that there is no one
looking at this particular issue -- no one "responsible" (as it were)?
This certainly goes on the list of things to fix for multimedia.
Ned: you have a bit more experience with the lower-guts in Squeak on
*nix? Do you want to file a bug on mantis?
How should we go about getting this fixed?
