'Me too' kind of post (no one replied on -current or -ports).
As soon as skype's window shows up everything stops - no mouse, no
keyboard, no ssh connection from other machine, no nothing. It started
in similar period of time (few weeks ago but I don't know exactly).
Here's my setup:
FreeBSD 6.0-BETA5 #2: Mon Oct 3 14:27:55 CEST 2005 i386
AMD Athlon 2000+, 512MB
I upgraded from 5.4-RELEASE (cvsup, make), recompiled all ports as
skype-188.8.131.52 = up-to-date with port
(previously skype-184.108.40.206, same effect)
linux-XFree86-libs-220.127.116.112_3 = up-to-date with port
linux-expat-1.95.5_3 = up-to-date with port
linux-fontconfig-2.1_4 = up-to-date with port
linux_base-8-8.0_6 = up-to-date with port
linux_dri-4.3.0_3 = up-to-date with port
kdebase-3.4.2_2 = up-to-date with port
kdehier-1.0_8 = up-to-date with port
kdelibs-3.4.2_1 = up-to-date with port
kdemultimedia-3.4.2_1 = up-to-date with port
kdeutils-3.4.2 = up-to-date with port
Linux compatibility module loaded at system boot (linux_enable="YES").
Any help appreciated.
