[pulseaudio-discuss] Skype and gMFSK and PA

    I got pulseaudio working on F8 and the normal audio on movies and 
such is fine. But I tried gMFSK which is an application that uses the 
sound-card DSP engine. It looks fine but when I try to receive digital 
data it suffers very bad interference and it will not transmit because 
it says /dev/dsp is busy.

    Sype comes up fine and appears to receive data but when I try to 
call anyone or answer a call they can't hear me at all, and all I hear 
is noise.

    Both of these applications I use daily and do not work even with PA 
turned off on the Pulseaudio Manager. This doesn't seem to turn off the 
part of PA that is attached to the sound-card DSP.

    So I must remove pulseaudio from my system again. It does appear to 
work but it has side effects that are not acceptable to me.
