Skype: "Problem with Sound Device"


Hi guys,

I just installed Skype on SuSE 9.3 from the rpm on the Skype website.
The problem is that when ever I try to chat to someone it fails and Skype tells me that there is a "Problem with Sound Device".

In the options menu it gives me four (4) options for the sound device to use:
/dev/dsp
/dev/dsp1
/dev/dsp2
/dev/dsp3

I have tried all four (4) and cannot get the sound device to be not a problem. I am using an Asus motherboard with intergrated sound card if that makes any difference.

I don't know what elements of my setup are important for this type of problem so feel free to request certain pieces of information.

This is probably relevent: I can only get sound to work through kaffiene (for dvds and movies) and amarok (for music), which are both running the Xine engine. Xmms, and realplayer don't produce ANY sound, nothing comes out of the speakers even though they are playing.

Thanks in advance.

Edit:
Just fixed the sound problem (of xmms and realplayer) by re-running alsaconf, and am about to check skype for issuse. Any pointers you still have would be great though.

delete this thread, re-running alsaconf and choosing /dev/dsp fixed the problem for me.
