 I'm running testing with the normal alsa modules for my soundcard, which uses 
the snd_intel8x0 module; I don't usually run arts, but with or without it I 
find Audacity works fine for recording. Not much comfort in that for you, 

 Make sure all the right things are on and up in Kmix:  master, pcm, line, and 
capture ( just checking :) ). Your card may have more or fewer than these to 

A few more details about your setup may help: Which card? Does other sound 
work? Which sound modules do you have loaded? What settings are you using in 
Control Center... > Sound system?

You may need a .asoundrc file (see alsaproject.org), but I doubt it.

There's a program called snd I'd like to suggest: it doesn't look fancy but 
has a lot of features while still easy to use for basic things; and it seems 
to work without any fiddling. (You also need snd-gtk-alsa for the GUI. ) It 
records direct to wav. and seems to run whether arts is present or not.
