    I've finally beaten down all of my other troubles, set the mike and speaker volumes but when I try a test call Skype says that I have an audio problem ! :eek:

    I'm running Ubuntu 8.10 7 And really like it a lot.:)

    Skype sound problem on Dell Vostro 1710 solved

    I had the same problem with Debian Lenny on my brand new Dell Vostro 1710 laptop with Intel-HDA. (Sound worked out of the box, but not for Skype). I also found out that Debian Lenny supports my hardware better then Ubuntu 8.10. :)

    This is what i did to solve my sound problem with Skype:

    Download these ALSA drivers:

    Extract the package:
    tar xjf alsa-driver-1.0.17rc3.tar.bz2

    Point to the right folder:
    cd alsa-driver-1.0.17rc3

    Make the configuration before compiling:
    ./configure --with-kernel=/usr/src/linux-headers-`uname -r`


    Install the new drivers:
    make install

    afterwards configure your sound device with the ALSA configuration program:

    Maybe it works on Ubuntu as well.
    (Execute all commands by using sudo).
