Audacity stops (stalls) when recording

Postby raywoods » Sun Sep 27, 2009 6:14 am

For many months Audacity has been working on my Mint 7 64 bit system (Dual AMD). I now find that when recording from web audio stream the program stalls after 4 minutes and 16 seconds. I've tried reinstalling Audacity with no result; then I tried using the configuration files from an earlier backup.

Has anyone else had the same problem? And, more importantly, has anyone got a solution?

Thanks in advance.

Yes. Many users solved this problem in different ways.

Perhaps, you may read this first (Windows, Mac, and Linux solutions):
