Skype OR pulse audio and xine

After installing Fedora F8, I don't get any sound from Skype. A bit of searching on the Skype forums suggested removing alsa-plugins-pulseaudio which I did. Skype worked (although apparently I sounded very tinny).

However, xine stopped outputting any sound, including totem-xine, xine, and Miro. I re-installed alsa-plugins-pulseaudio, xine works again, Skype doesn't work.

Does anyone have any tips on how to get the two working at the same time?

Thanks for the suggestion. I've installed alsa-plugins-oss, but everything seems to be working. It seemed to work before I installed it though.

If I hit any other problems and find a solution, I'll post back here.
