Mandrake 10.1 & Skype problem
Hey Guys I may have spoke to soon about Mandrake 10.1 Community but I developed a problem with Skype (messenger), it worked great in the past, but suddenly I can no longer use the voice communication part.
If I try to connect through voice, by clicking on the green telelphone icon (which makes it ring) it tells me that I have a "bad sound device" when I try to answer someone that is trying to ring me. I then check Kmix and my alsa mixer and I do not see anything out of the norm or to be wrong or improperly set.
If I go to options>>>port>>>> inside with my other PC that has Mandrake 10.0 installed on it, it says my port # is 59293 and when I check 10.1 it said port 37227. Well I do not know if that makes any difference at all, but I have tried to change and that did not work either.
I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Skype and nothing seems to works. I can use the instant message on it and it works OK, but if someone trys to ring me, it tells me I have a "bad sound device", and the call ultimately fails
At this point I am not sure what else I can do, other than doing a complete
reinstall of my enitre Mandrake 10.1 operating system. I can only assume there is some sort of bug that has affected my sound driver that works with Skype, but I am not sure if it's worth going through all that trouble of reinstalling the entire operating system..
