After many months trying to find a good answer for my problemes, with
alsa-driver, OSS, Skype, hda-intel, I decided to have a look at Fedora
8. Skype 1.4.118 is working perfectly, clear sound, and I can have
multiple calls with no mic problem or hda-intel problem, and this out of
the box.
Dont ask me why or how this can be (almost same kernel and alsa-driver
version) but instead of changing laptop, I changed OS.
Ubuntu will stay on all desktop servers, and I hope to be satisfied with
Fedora 8 on my Acer laptop.
Thanks everyone for your help.
