Skype 2.1 sounds not working with Sabayon Linux.

In my laptop this happen due to pulseaudio software. After uninstalling it, skype is start working. I followed steps which noted below to get skype work.

  • killed all pulsaudio processes. 
    • following command will kill all processes which related to pulseaudio.
    • ps ax | grep pulseaudio | cut -c 1-5 | xargs kill -9
  • removed pulseaudio start up files from /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/  directory.
  • or you can remove execution permission from pulseaudio, using following command.
    • chmod -x /usr/bin/pulseaudio
  • reinstall the skype (because sometimes without reinstalling skype not working)
  • goto skype options and check the driver.
  • now Skype should work.
This is happening with other linux OS as well,

I could see people facing to similar issue who used the Ubuntu.
