     The problem is that we don't have ALSA support in the kernel.  I

Until a comparable open source alternative shows up, I bet I am not the
only person who considers Skype an essential desktop tool. Being stuck
at 1.2 won't fly for very long.

        Maybe people could post a bounty for anyone who implements
        sufficient ALSA support in the kernel to run the Linux Skype
        binary. I know I'd put $50 towards it :)
