Skype error Problem with audio playback

Trying to get Skype to work on Mandriva 2010.2 x64_64. Machine is 1-year-old HP p6680t quad-core, lots of memory and disk space.

Downloaded dynamic package from Skype, copied skype and librararies according to README. When I try the Echo / Sound Test service, or a regular connection, a dialog pops up and reports the error: "Problem with Audio Playback"

Found instructions on another web site to disable and uninstall all pulse-audio. Did so. Same results.  Reinstalled pulse-audio, since it is required by other critically important software.

Found other instructions to add the MiB media and install Skype package from there. urpmi skype installed with 2 dependencies libxi6 and libxrandr2. Same results.

Suggestion please?

Thanks,
JimR

I had the same problem in openSUSE 12.2 64 bit. It was solved by installing alsa-plugins-pulse-32bit and its dependencies.
