There is gramofile. (Comes with SuSE). Generaly thought to capture old
vinyl records. Works -a bit crude, non graphic- from an xterm.

You need to set the recording source by hand, in KDE you need to bring
up the mixer (kmix), point to the line-out lever, right click and select
record source.

I havn't tried to record from line out yet, but the option seems to
exist. There is another lever for record in (gain). You need to make use
of that one too.
