up this powerful thread!

is it possible to run some sort of a skype server on gentoox pro and use connected usb "skype" phones to make calls? I've seen conflicting reports...the minimum requirements are 128 mb ram...however some chick got it too work in gentoox home (with X stuff and all...)
So has anybody tried this...?

It should be possible... as for not being able to hear the sound, it sounds like you might need to mess with alsa. If you're using KDE, maybe you have to set skype to use aRts.
