How do you disable pulse? Just "$ pkill pulse" ? Or something fancier?
I am not using
jack, though that probably isn't your issue. I am using the audacity
1.3.6 beta, and I compiled and installed it from the tarball. I have
used the line in successfully to record. It was necessary to select
it as the mic is usually the default. alsamixer then F4, and select
the recording source.
Here's the key. (And I feel very stupid.) How do you select line as
the default for recording? The Gnome mixer applet (right click on the
little speaker in the upper task bar; select "Open Volume Control") has
no checkboxes to select recording input (as opposed to the help page).
Alsamixer seems to want to communicate only with pulseaudio.

I've never had any *more* trouble with audacity with jack than with
audacity without jack. I certainly hope that jack support is not
disabled, since jack has given me much higher recording quality at high
data rates (48000 samples / sec) than plain vanilla alsa -- I think I
was getting lots of drop outs (i.e.xruns).
