Hi again.

I haven't got the /compat/linux/dev directory:

[joseba at Mundaka /usr/home/joseba]$ ls -l /compat/linux/dev
ls: /compat/linux/dev: No such file or directory

And of course, I haven't got anything mounted on it:

[joseba at Mundaka /usr/home/joseba]$ mount
/dev/ad0s2a on / (ufs, local)
devfs on /dev (devfs, local)
/dev/ad0s2e on /tmp (ufs, local, soft-updates)
/dev/ad0s2f on /usr (ufs, local, soft-updates)
/dev/ad0s2d on /var (ufs, local, soft-updates)
/dev/ad0s1 on /mnt/winXP (msdosfs, local)

I have also seen that when skype shows the alarm, it kills a channel:

[joseba at Mundaka /usr/home/joseba]$ dmesg | grep pcm
pcm0: <Acer Labs M5451> port 0x8400-0x84ff mem 0xd0005000-0xd0005fff irq 5 at device 6.0 on pci0
pcm0: <Conexant CX20468 AC97 Codec>
pcm0:record:0:dsp0.0: record interrupt timeout, channel dead

Can you explain me or tell me a link to read how to configurate this directory well to make skype work fine?

I have installed gnome2 and the Volume control names the sound device "Unknow volume control 1(Oss mixer)". Is it important? I don't know if I need something else to configure the sound correctly.

Thanks a lot.
