This short howto will show how to record the soundcard output on Linux with Audacity while running in KDE.
The given task was in this case: record the output of a flash streaming online radio. In principle this shouldn’t be difficult because the data are on your computer - you just have to route them through a recording tool.
This isn't a tutorial for making your own distro- that requires time, money, and m4d-1337 technical 5k!11z. This is how to make a Live CD for an application of your choice.
==Why have a Live CD?==
Portability. A program would normally have to be installed several times in order for it to be able to be used wherever you go, so why not put it on a CD?

I recently decided to try out Ubuntu to see what all the fuss was about. My notes here apply to Virtual PC 2007.
Downloading Ubuntu and Setting up the VPC
To start, download the iso image from the Ubuntu download site. I downloaded the 7.04 version first since I assumed the bigger the version number, the better, right? We’ll see this isn’t always the case as we’ll see.

A typical Linux desktop user is a guy in his twenties who's computer savvy but may very well not be an IT professional. Those are some of the conclusions you can draw from the just-released openSUSE survey results.
Sam Linux 2007 is another one of those distros that clearly has a lot going for it because numerous people have told me to look in it's direction. On further investigation it seems odd that I've not heard of this release before.
Interface, aesthetics and general feel
It’s about time for another FOSSwire game post and this time I’m going to be looking at Planet Penguin Racer.
PP Racer is actually a fork of a now-abandoned game, Tux Racer. You can still download the old Tux Racer, but the last news for it was back in 2001. For the newer levels and features, you’ll probably want to play PP Racer.
Having heard that Vista's CD/DVD burn utility by default uses a nonstandard format, possibly as a result of yet another one of Microsoft's lock-in schemes, I decided to check things out for myself. That would also give me a nice chance to see what Vista was all about.
The plan was simple:
1. Locate a Vista box,

A great solution for finding and installing software in openSUSE.
Benjamin Weber's solution provides a meta-repository of packages from repositories around the web, and a meta-package format makes it very easy to install new software, without having to find and register new repositories, or even start the dreaded YaST...
