Skype on Fedora Core 9 with Pulse Audio – fixing glitches
I don’t have much time, so this is an abriged version…
I installed Skype on my FC9 install on my Dell Mini. I soon found issues that many other users of FC come across with FC’s Pulse Audio: hissing and glitches in the sound.
Long story short, I fixed this. Not sure if all these steps are required but mine now works:
- Added user to the Pulse Audio groups. This link helped (don’t use the code from there though).
- Changed /etc/pulse/daemon.conf. Uncommented last 2 lines and changed them to:
default-fragments = 8
default-fragment-size-msec = 5
Reboot and that should be it!
