When I disabled artsd, skype works.  Thank you.

Now, after start skype I have
# fstat | grep '\(\(dsp\|audio\|dspW\|mixer\)[0-9]\|\(snd\|midi\)stat\)'
zbyszek     skype_bin  68381   30 /dev         37 crw-rw-rw-  mixer0 rw
zbyszek     skype_bin  68381   31 /dev         38 crw-rw-rw-  dsp0.0 rw

I have a question. Is possible to use skype without disabling artsd, in my 
case? In Debian it works, so I suppose that it must work, but how to do it 
under FreeBSD? 

Thank you a lot Ariff ! 

Best regards :-)
