well, I read those things, and I guess I tried most of them. Did what Berkus said...nothing helps so far...
And I don't think the problem is Skype, because my mic doesn't work at all. Tried with Krec and with something else, and there's no voice and no input form it, just noises.
I am with Alsa 1.0.14 and the skype is 220.127.116.11.r1, I tried updating it from kuroo and emerge, but for some reasons it won't update. But anyway, if I manage to have my mic working, I don't need the skype, I have better ideas.
After Google search I found this for the same error i get from skype:
"If you sound card driver only can support one (or very few) processes accessing it, then you have trouble. The latest NForce2 drivers are like this. If you run KDE3 for example, you get desktop sounds, but no other app can access the dsp unless it uses the arts daemon."
The thing is i have all kind of sounds working. Just the mic is not. Everything is unmuted, but still I get only noises and not even a hint of voice. It looks like something is preventing the mic from registering anythin...
Little update- when i try to play trough in krec, i get only high pitching noise. Maybe that could lead us to the actual problem. I start thinking that for some reasons the Sabayon don't recognise mic jacks as devices or something. Nor it recognise the internal mics.
Btw, when I load alsaconf I first get this message:
" modinfo: could not find module snd"
and then it all loads and works fine. Well, except for the mics...
And after few hours of messing with it, now the sound sucks...aaah
