I had it working the other day and now no sound?

I don't know what you have or haven't tried, so here's some basic stuff - apologies if you've done all this.

Have you checked the audio options to make sure the correct sound card is selected? I sometimes find that Skype forgets its audio settings, especially across a reboot when all the sound card IDs can change.

I also find I have to uncheck the 'Allow Skype to automatically adjust my mixer levels' option, and set the relevant volumes manually - Skype's auto-adjust feature has a habit of being very quiet then suddenly deafening me. It's silenced the audio completely a couple of times as well.

Steve.

Two questions. Did you compile any special audio driver? Did you upgrade your kernel right before your sound problems started. If the answers are yes to both, you might just need to recompile your audio driver module...

I don't know excatly what I did other than play around with the audio and skype configurations again and again until it worked. Now its OK.
