there was no problems installing skype wia synaptic, choosing the variant
skype-static-oss, which seems to be the most functional on my system. the
one problem is: I cannot get the microphone to work. For that matter,
I cannot get the mic to work with any other program either, specifically the
sound recorder program on the gnome menu.

What do people do to get the mic to work (HP pavillion, dv6921 if that is
any other package that has to be installed?
