What about skype phones? Is there a way to make them work with Linux? For instance, I have a Philips voip0801B/37. Are there open source drivers for these sort of things?

Hey look if you can make it work as a generic kind/device type.

In regards to the other linux distributions which would be the most likely to work with arch? If you look at skype.com you will find packages for debian, etc.. I've managed to get flash player in arch x64 from using the ndiswrapper scripts from ubuntu, any idea?

Troubleshooting

Hello, I've just found out that changing the permissions of libpulse, as the wiki recommends, breaks mplayer. I don't know if this is a peculiarity of my setup -- I doubt it --, but I would encourage other wiki users to try if this is the case, and if it is the section should be ammended.
