Well, here is the result of l ds* gives following
:/dev> l ds*
crw-rw-rw- 1 cbvn audio 14, 3 2006-05-11 21:02 dsp
crw------- 1 cbvn audio 14, 19 2006-05-11 21:02 dsp1

No dsp-1 so I really do not know where that comes from.
The Skype instalation is total fresh after deleting in Yast from the the last
install and the soundcard is newly configured. Just found out that my email
notification is not working ;(.
In console the skype command is calling the local skype setup so I assume
dsp-1 must be found somewhere there.
Or could that be hiding somewhere in the etc local config?
