Ok, I changed it ( I still don't understand that wiki syntax, I find
editing wiki's awkward).

Andypoo in
http://forum.skype.com/index.php?showtopic=112021&hl=pulseaudio : his
point of view is that it is pulseaudio's fault, not Skype.
Someone else in that skype forum thread: "Skype should not program
anything specically targeted at DMIX. Skype should be programmed to
interface with the ALSA API in a standard way. ... A solid ALSA
implementation in Skype would address most issues for most users but a
pluggable sound API for Skype would be best... ". Let's hope the Skype
linux developer(s) reprogram Skype soon with this suggestion.

In a couple of weeks when I install Mandriva 2008.1 I'll try Ekiga
again: I hope this time that bug in ekiga_win32 is resolved. But the
Skype program is still my favorite despite it being closed source.


You rock. That's why Blockbuster's offering you one month of Blockbuster Total Access, No Cost.
