Since pulseaudio has been in Fedora and Ubuntu, Skype now gives me more problems. Skype has not been working at all in Fedora since I put I changed out my mobo/cpu. It gives the error "problems with audio device." I have been to irc channels #alsa and #pulseaudio with this and those who tried to help were not able to figure out the problem. I put in an amd64 live cd of the latest Ubuntu and booted that, installed Skype and tested it. The results were that Skype worked for voice conferencing, but I could not have sound from any other applications while having a voice conference. I tried launching Skype with the 32 bit alsa-oss script and library too without success. This is a problem when I want to do things such as use Skype simultaneously while using Flash, Linux games, or Amarok. Has anyone found a solution that allowed good sound quality voice conferencing to other users whether they were using Windows or Linux?
