My EeePC was the only computer that had Skype on it [ it just came with
the install of Eeebuntu ]. The new upgrade deleted it. I would guess
that Skype and Lucid are incompatable.

Package: gcc-4.4
Version: 4.4.4-5
Severity: minor

*** Please type your report below this line ***

For error messages concerning inline assembler statements, gcc
counts embedded "
" characters towards the line number, instead of
actual newlines in the source file, so the error messages refer to
the wrong lines.

Compiling the test program below with "gcc asm-line-number.c" gives
this output:

asm-line-number.c: Assembler messages:
asm-line-number.c:3: Error: no such instruction: `foo'
asm-line-number.c:4: Error: no such instruction: `foo'
asm-line-number.c:8: Error: no such instruction: `foo'

In f1(), both asm errors are in the same source line (3), but gcc
counts them as different because of the "
" between them.

In f2(), the line number refers to the line (8) which contains
"__asm__" instead of the line (10) with the actual asm code.

static void f1 ()
{
__asm__ ("foo
foo");
}

static void f2 ()
{
__asm__
(
"foo"
);
}

Not so. It works 100% for me on Lucid. It seems that it's the combination of Skype, Lucid, and Nvidia sound cards that is the problem.

For those that have installed skype - how did you install it? From the Skype website, or from the 'partner' repository? Mine is from the partner repository.

Well, at the risk of starting a holy war, I installed 10.4 Ubuntu and
all the pulse applications. THEN I installed KDE on top of that, after
setting up all my audio from Gnome. Now that KDE is all quieted down and
everything seems to be peachy, I read this thread and decided to try.
So, I installed the Skype package straight from the repos. Fired it up,
re-activated an account I set up eons ago and went through the test
call. Mind you, I'm using a HugesNet dish to the Internet with a slower
than hell uplink speed. My voice sounded just fine when it played it
back. First time. No muss nor fuss. Ergo, my reasoning dictates the
problem lies on the kubuntu side of ubuntu with regards to pulse and
skype. But, it works just fine from KDE installed the way I did it. You
mileage may vary, but that is my experience. And, I'm a complete idiot
nowadays... it ain't yesterday's Caldera anymore, Toto. Ric

And you forgot to add that you are living on a mountain top in W. VA (?) and
you were holding the tin can out the window to the east which did a lot for
propagation and you were also waving a chickens foot.

(no, just kidding folks.... no chicken feet involved)

I'm am the proud inventor and founder of Computer Chicken Foot Voodoo,
and wouldn't leave home without it!

That's Gene who lives in the hollar in WV, he's a cantankerous old
fart... I'm the other one. I live in Southern Virginia in another
hollar, just above the flood stage of the Meherrin River. I do have to
keep my cell phone up against the window just to get a connection... we
are out in the toolies! So, that is the miracle, that Skype worked out
of the box for me.

Now to go light a fuse in remembrance of the traditions set by our
Founding Fathers, who were noble men or terrorists and
traitors, ...depending on which side of the Big Drink you live on.

For whatever good or bad it might do in finding out the problem I can
also report trouble-free usage on my "all intel" laptop. Installed from
partner repo

Well, I'm using Lucid, Skype 2.1.0.81-1, and NVidia cards (HDA NVidia
VT1708S Analog) and everything works here without Pulse. I did a clean
install (I don't believe in upgrades) and got Skype from their website.
I'm using a Logitech webcam with integrated microphone. I had to
select USB Device..... on Options -> Sound Devices -> Microphone in
order to get it to work.

I had Skype installed in 8.04 from the Ubuntu repositories. It still works
fine after the 10.04 upgrade, however, I was told to upgrade through the Gnome
side rather than the KDE side as it was supposedly safer. I never use Gnome
although it is on my machine as well as a Kubuntu and Xfce install. You are
correct however, that Nvidia cards are a constant problem. The one machine we
have with Nvidia cards is still not working since 7.10 but that could be
because no-one in the office really cares to spend the time to trouble shoot it
on every upgrade.
