*120 GB Hard Disk Memory
*NVIDIA 8400GT Graphics Card @ 384 MB Internal Memory
*SigmaTel Audio Codecs
*Windows Vista Home Premium (PRE INSTALLED)
*Linux Mint 6 Felicia (DUAL BOOTED)


My Audio Out Jack Doesn't work in Linux....It works ok in Vista....
as a result when I plugin my headphones in the jack my notebook speakers keep on playing...and headphones give no output...
I have tried diff headphones and everything...

Have you checked the mixer (by double clicking the speaker) ?
Go through and check/uncheck the mute and volume levels for
the various inputs/outputs? Maybe there is a headphone output
that you can unmute or turn up?
I think sound is a work in progress in Linux/Ubuntu at this point,
due to the conversion from alsa to pulse audio.

Does anyone know how to record streaming audio in Mint?
I would like to use Audacity or something to record streaming
music so I can listen in my car.
I'm using Mint 6 x64.

You have to tell us more facts.
The minimum is exactly which Mint you have - which version and which edition (main or any of the CEs)
We also need to know a bit about all your hardware.
Run " lspci " in a terminal and post here (to avoid misunderstanding - the first character is a minor L and you copy by marking with the mouse and then right click)
Some wifi and possibly built in sound can be connected to USB even if they are internal - if you suspect you have one of these run " lsusb " in a terminal.
Also tell us if this is using mint4win or not, quite important
This is a standard answer so it may not be fully applicable to your situation
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
