Well I successfully got Opensuse 11.4 up and running on my acer intel
laptop with ATI sound. Everything works really well with many speed
improvements especially noticeable now kde4.6 is the desktop. Well that
is except for skype 2.1b2 because Opensuse have now swapped to
pulseaudio (dammit). Can anybody tell me what I should be doing to
assess what is going wrong that my pulseaudio skpe cannot use the
internal mic (the one just above the laptop display)? btw, all other
sound recording apps seem to be working fine, it appears to be just
skype with the problem.
I have tried having pavucontrol open to check for mic usage with its
usage meter but it seems they have set opensuse's sound system up so
that pavucontrol takes TOTAL control of the sound system while running
so no other application can access the sound! All I get with sound
recording apps when I try to run while pavucontrol is up are "cannot
access sound device..." type messages.
