skype and sound
I am running slack 12 with kernel 126.96.36.199-smp (although this
esists with other kernels and other versions of slack). My mb has a
intel hda sound device which previously worked ok.
Recently I installed skype and a usb sound adapter (Imic). I
configured to use the usb device and I can get the test call to work
problem is that once I got skype working the rest of my sound
and devices stopped working.
I have checked alsamixer and the installed modules and they
are all ok
(nothing is muted, etc). I can cat a sound file to the usb device but
to through the built in sound card (to which my speakers are
sound application, except skype, works with either device. For
example 'aplay sound_file ' or aplay -c 1 sound_file ' produce only
silence, but 'cat sound_file >/dev/dsp1' produces static from the
Lspci lists the built in sound card and lsusb lists the usb
Rebooting and/or turning the computer off have no effect. I have had
results with another kernel in slack 12 and with a third kernel in
11. During the boot process the speakers pop but that is the only
have been able to get out of them.
The skype setting at present for sound in/out is: Imic usb
(plughw (or hw), 0). I cannpt get skype to work with the built in
There may be a skype forum for this but I think it is a
problem and the gurus who listen here can help.
