I removed skype from my system as soon as Gates bought it.  We need to stand up to these monopolists whenever possible.  There are alternatives.

The repos still need some work before we can go final.

Installing a package without dependencies often leaves it non-functional. To obtain the deps for pavucontrol you need to enable the "untested" repo.  ( for 32-bit). That will pull in gtkmm plus a few other packages.

Where did you get Skype from, and what type of installer?

Have the latest RC installed.

All seems to work fine. Wonder why it is still a Release Candidate.

I have a problem with skype- Sound test echo fails, does not replay
my message. In my other linux box in skype ctrl-o>Sound Deivices  I can do
settings for pulseaudio and get replay of message working. This setting possibility
is absent here in VL-Light.

Installed pavucontrol with --no-dep since it is looking for gtkmm which I cannot find.
Now PulsAudioVolumeControl does show in skype Sound Devices, however, will not open.

USB keyboard and mouse through an Iomega KVM switch (use same mouse, etc. with two computers).  As I mentioned, they work with RC 6.3 which I had installed again between the two installations of RC 6.6

bt peripherals would not cause bootloader to hang for sure.  This (if indeed present) is something else

The md5sum.text I had checked did not compare with rc6 - obviously!  It is the correct for rc6.6.
Reinstalled - still no keyboard or mouse at login and it takes a hard power off to get out of it.  They work fine with RC6.3.
