I've looked hard for this one, sorry if it's been done before, but I 
couldn't finf the answer.

I have just installed Skype, and all looked well until I tested it, 
seems that I have a problem with the sound. As suggested I lloked at 
permisions for the /dev/dsp, which is correctly owned by my Linux user. 
Other audio programs, Xine / Mplayer / Realplayer etc are fine.

Also how do I test to see if the microphone is working, is there a nice 
little Gui that displays the sound wave from the mic?
