The software makes the phone call and chat works fine, but I cannot listen what the other person says and he doesn't hear what I say. I can also hear my voice in the output of my computer, and in the second call, I receive the next message: > [EMAIL PROTECTED] /usr/home/joseba]$ skype_bin > read error, res = 0 , handle = 30 > /dev/dsp-1: Device or resource busy Do you have /compat/linux/dev directory and/or mount devfs on it? Show your "ls -l /compat/linux/dev". I haven't got the /compat/linux/dev directory: [EMAIL PROTECTED] /usr/home/joseba]$ ls -l /compat/linux/dev ls: /compat/linux/dev: No such file or directory And of course, I haven't got anything mounted on it: [EMAIL PROTECTED] /usr/home/joseba]$ mount /dev/ad0s2a on / (ufs, local) devfs on /dev (devfs, local) /dev/ad0s2e on /tmp (ufs, local, soft-updates) /dev/ad0s2f on /usr (ufs, local, soft-updates) /dev/ad0s2d on /var (ufs, local, soft-updates) /dev/ad0s1 on /mnt/winXP (msdosfs, local) > I have been reading the small documentation that skype has on his website and I see that it works with the oss mixer using the /dev/dsp. I have tried to modify the values of the /dev/dsp0.0 to 0.4 with the xfce4-mixer, and impossible. All of them are down and I cannot wake up them, they fall down. Using the mixer command I see that all of them are in the same situation, the same as mixer0. > Any help, please? I have also seen that when skype shows the alarm, it kills a channel: [EMAIL PROTECTED] /usr/home/joseba]$ dmesg | grep pcm pcm0: <Acer Labs M5451> port 0x8400-0x84ff mem 0xd0005000-0xd0005fff irq 5 at device 6.0 on pci0 pcm0: <Conexant CX20468 AC97 Codec> pcm0: [GIANT-LOCKED] pcm0:record:0:dsp0.0: record interrupt timeout, channel dead Can you explain me or tell me a link to read how to configurate this directory well to make skype work fine? I have installed gnome2 and the Volume control names the sound device "Unknow volume control 1(Oss mixer)". Is it important? I don't know if I need something else to configure the sound correctly. Also, when I see the processes involved with skype, I obtain the following (5 different skype_bin): bash-2.05b$ ps -aux | grep skype joseba 80724 0.0 7.8 28188 14564 ??
