I love Fedora. So obviously I love Linux :D, so its only natural that I would not want to use ***doze for just Skype-right?
Here starts a mix and match of sound servers that were messing up one or the other app-pulse audio was not helping much. If I set everything to OSS, audacious and skype were working but not vlc, and any combination had such problems.
Getting Skype 2 beta alone to work was a significant task-all with skype when run on the CLI telling me the follosing message:
Cannot open shared library /usr/lib/alsa-lib/libasound_module_ctl_pulse.so
And searching around I found that this so was in alsa-plugins-pulseaudio, which adding to the confusion was already installed on my machine...
The solution turned out to be to surprise-surprise-- uninstall alsa-plugins-pulseaudio :)
Vlc->Settings->Preferences->Audio->OutPut Modules->Advanced options enabled
Now that done, I removed all traces of pulse on my FC8 box and added a few plugins for audacious and alsa-the following is the list of related packages I have at the moment:
And now, all three work fine...phew....
