Capturing Real Audio stream - (linux digest, Vol 1 #891)

I have been recording Real Audio with KDE's kmix and krecord.
RealAudio (Netscape) is available as one of the standard mixer 

Right click the leftmost slider and mark it as RecSource, works
with SuSe 6.4 on old 400 MHz PII pretty well. Some tasks,
like rendering big pictures on web pages may cause temporary 
clicks in recording. AM radio quality is 8-bits, 8000 samples 
per second. A few samples clipped is OK, but several clippings 
per minute sounds nasty. Memory buffer instead of disk buffer 
in krecord works better, but you have to save the buffer.
