I have a problem with the sound device and skype. I have a HP compaq nx9005, that works fine (I think) with the snd_t4dwave driver (I can hear music with xmms, and so on).

Mundaka# cat /dev/sndstat
FreeBSD Audio Driver (newpcm)
Installed devices:
pcm0: <Acer Labs M5451> at io 0x8400 irq 5  (4p/1r/0v channels duplex default)

I have installed skype from /usr/ports/net/skype. The software makes the phone call and chat works fine, but I cannot listen what the other person says and he doesn't hear what I say. I can also hear my voice in the output of my computer, and in the second call, I receive the next message:

[joseba at Mundaka /usr/home/joseba]$ skype_bin
read error, res = 0 , handle = 30
/dev/dsp-1: Device or resource busy

I have been reading the small documentation that skype has on his website and I see that it works with the oss mixer using the /dev/dsp. I have tried to modify the values of the /dev/dsp0.0 to 0.4 with the xfce4-mixer, and impossible. All of them are down and I cannot wake up them, they fall down. Using the mixer command I see that all of them are in the same situation, the same as mixer0.

Any help, please?
