Install Skype in Fedora 14 (64 bits)

Since Skype doesn’t provide a 64 bits version, we can use the 32 bits version if we are using a Fedora of 64 bits.

1. Install the i686 pre-requisite packages.

yum -y install pulseaudio-libs.i686 pulseaudio-libs-devel.i686 alsa-plugins-pulseaudio.i686 libv4l.i686   libXv.i686 libXv-devel.i686 libXScrnSaver.i686  libXScrnSaver-devel.i686 dbus-qt.i686 dbus-qt-devel.i686 qt.i686 qt-devel.i686

2. Download Skype i586 (fedora 10+)

wget http://download.skype.com/linux/skype-2.1.0.81-fc10.i586.rpm

3. Install Skype

yum -y localinstall skype-2.1.0.81-fc10.i586.rpm --nogpgcheck

We can now run our new Skype Installation.
