I do not have video and audio problem. But I have the same problem that it absorbs the whole RAM and then crashes. I'm using F14 x86_64.

When I started a video call, more than 80% of RAM was eaten again! I had to turn back to the old version.

Re: Skype 2.2 beta random crash

I have the same problem I think. Sometimes it works fine, sometimes Skype makes my entire computer fail and I can't do much about it. I use Skype 2.2 Beta and Fedora 14.

Is there anyone who fixed it? Else I'll have a close look this weekend, because I need Skype to work.


Edit:
Ow, and after such a crash i don't hear any sounds although everything is fine in alsamixer. Don't know whether this part of the problem or just a side effect.

Re: Skype 2.2 beta random crash

I too have the same bug of having skype using about 2.7 Gigs of ram of 3.0 Gigs, having alot of slow downs, but I then kill the process to get rid of this lag.
I want to report this bug to skype developers but I don't know how.anybody can help ?

Re: Skype 2.2 beta random crash

At least you can visit the skype forum and post a thread three.

One of the developers claimed on the forum that they had tested the new version on a variaty of linux distributions before releasing it. Now it is clear that they did not. At least they did not test the skype 2.2 enough on Fedora, one of the most popular linux distributions.

Re: Skype 2.2 beta random crash

I'm on Fedora 15 (beta), kernel 2.6.38.5-24.fc15.i686 and Skype 2.20.2.25. When I upgraded, it worked no more. It opens, but crashes the system when it tries to connect. I have to hard-reset.

Has anyone found a solution?

Re: Skype 2.2 beta random crash

On my F15 x86_64 I''ve noticed that at Skype login if no sound is played it starts eating all the RAM... I think is a pulseaudio related problem, sometimes I have the same problem with VLC eating all the RAM.

But be sure, now that Microsoft have bought Skype the compatibility with Linux will be better! :-p
