Hi !

My first question was to freebsd-questions, but now i think that is a 
multimedia issue.
ls for /dev/dsp* shows:
crw-rw-rw-  1 root  wheel    0, 112 Dec 13 12:43 /dev/dsp0.0

skype says that is using /dev/dsp

dmesg says:
pcm0: <Intel 82801G High Definition Audio Controller> mem 
0xde300000-0xde303fff irq 22 at device 27.0 on pci0
pcm0: [ITHREAD]
pcm0: <HDA Codec: Realtek ALC861-VD>
pcm0: <HDA Driver Revision: 20080420_0052>

I am able to ear sound on many apps.

mixer says:
Mixer vol      is currently set to 100:100
Mixer pcm      is currently set to 100:100
Mixer mic      is currently set to   0:0
Mixer rec      is currently set to  50:50

But I can get no sound on skype with regular user.

What should I do?
