    I've seen that error. I believe it means that Skype is not finding your sound card. How do you have things set under Options->Sound devices? Try different settings?

    It could also mean that some other application has monopolized sound, and it is not available.

    Correct. I had to switch the device for audio playback when I first installed Skype.

    I can not help you with skype, as I do not use that software. I "might" be able to help you to generically get your mic working.

    When I test my mic, I typically use a simple arecord command. ie something like
    arecord -d 10 myrecording.wav
    or
    arecord -d 10 -f cd secondrecording.wav
    where "-d 10" sets a 10 second recording. I then play back the recording with xine or mplayer or xmms (or any audio playback program).

    If while recording audio with the basic "arecord" does not work, then we need more information on your hardware/software audio configuration and on your mixer. To provide more information, then with your PC connected to the internet, please copy and paste the following into a gnome-terminal / konsole:
    Code:
    wget http://home.cfl.rr.com/infofiles/tsalsa && su -c 'bash ./tsalsa'
    when prompted for a password please enter your root password. Please try to accurately answer the question on the number of plugs/jacks on your PC (for example my PC has 3 i/o plugs/jacks). When the script completes it will pass you a URL. Please post that URL here.

    Also, please copy and paste the following, one line at a time, into a gnome-terminal/konsole and post the output here.
    rpm -qa | grep alsa
    rpm -qa | grep pulse
    rpm -q libasound2
    uname -a
    cat /etc/modprobe.d/sound

    Good luck!
