Angry Sound problem in skype


Having problems with skype, originally had an ISA soundblaster card, when i tried to call anybody skype told me i had a sound problem, so think that it was the ancient card i put in an avance PCI card same problem, both cards were configured correctly with the right drivers, and showed the input controls and output controls in kmix, and music and sounds work on both, can somebody please help me; is this a bug in skype?

if your using an indepant mic you need skype_dsp_hijacker to use the second mic otherwise change you config in skype to use the right sound source.

simply put ... here what I would do
1) Indentify the right /dev/dsp[#]
How ?
first find out which dsp you have..

>ls /dev/dsp*

/dev/dsp /dev/dsp1 /dev/dsp2

With your headset plugin, open a terminal and do the following test:

cat /dev/dsp

now talk in you headset ... if you see somthing happening then it's the one otherwise
try the next one (Ctr-C to stop)

After I.D the right dsp open skype go in Tool/Option/Hand/Headset and set the right dsp.

If you can't you play standart music the look at
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...d.php?t=249782
otherwise it might simply be a snd card config problem.

Thumbs up Fixed!

It's okay I've fixed it it was to do with ALSA, I had to compile it as a module instead of straight into the kernel!
