Dear Multimedia readers,

So as to not leave the another person that might by accident stumble
upon my last mail stay in the dark (or quiet), this is what I did:

After some more search, I stumbled upon
http://forums.freebsd.org/viewtopic.php?t=28542, where sg1efc, mav@
and Peter2121 solved the problem as follows:

Install audio/linux-f10-alsa-plugins-oss from ports, and add
additional entries to /compat/linux/etc/alsa/pcm/pcm-oss.conf.

For example, with the entry

pcm.oss1 {
        type oss
        device /dev/dsp1
        hint {
                description "Open Sound System 1"

I can select this particular device in the skype options menu, and my
built-in microphone works.

PS: There may be some superfluous package installations or such like
in my process, I haven't tested that. But willing to use skype, how
can I complain about superfluous packages?
