Hi. I wanted to make a screencast about GuixSD, but recordmydesktop couldn't record sound. Launching it without parameters gives
Error while opening/configuring soundcard /dev/dsp
Manual page says I could specify sound device
Sound device(default hw:0,0 or /dev/dsp, depending on
whether ALSA or OSS is used).
I've tried both, hw:0,0 and /dev/dsp, none worked.
Meanwhile, I've tried to record my microphone with audacity and succeded, no configuration requred. By default audacity records from ALSA hw:0,0.
What should I do? Can I solve this issue with JACK, or it wouldn't help either? Shouldn't recordmydesktop package be recompiled with ALSA support? I thought it already has it. recordmydesktop is compilled with
with no options, everything is default. http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/guix.git/tree/gnu/packages/video.scm#n1509
recordmydesktop-0.3.8.1/configure --help has a list of otional features
--disable-option-checking ignore unrecognized --enable/--with options
--disable-FEATURE do not include FEATURE (same as --enable-FEATURE=no)
--enable-FEATURE[=ARG] include FEATURE [ARG=yes]
--disable-dependency-tracking speeds up one-time build
--enable-dependency-tracking do not reject slow dependency extractors
--enable-oss=yes compile with OSS(don't check for ALSA)
--enable-jack=yes compile with Jack support
As I can see ALSA is a default option. Why doesn't recordmydesktop in GuixSD doesn't work with my microphone like audacity does?
