Hello list,

I recently migrated my father's computer from WinME to OpenSuSE 11.0. He
would like to use Skype on the new platform. Can you recommend well
supported choices for the following hardware:

- USB webcam
- headset

Please note that the computer already has a sound card (can't remember
the brand or model) that is recognised and configured. The usual "extra"
multimedia packages and codecs are installed.

Based on this, would you recommend to use a headset that plugs in the
soundcard jacks or a USB one ?

Any and all pointers appreciated.


Cheers. Bye.

Ph. A.
