Q: How to install  Skype in Fedora14  64bit?

A: As you know, there is  no  Skype 64bit  available, in this post we will use i686  packages to install skype in 64bit.

Our current system is :

[pirat9@fedora-home ~]$ uname -a
Output:
Linux fedora-home 2.6.35.6-48.fc14.x86_64 #1 SMP Fri Oct 22 15:36:08 UTC 2010 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

 

To be able to install Skype 32 bit in a 64 bit system we need to install some dependencies using yum:

 

yum  install libXv.i686 libXScrnSaver.i686 qt.i686 qt-x11.i686  pulseaudio-libs.i686 pulseaudio-libs-glib2.i686  alsa-plugins-pulseaudio.i686  -y

 

Now  download  Skype  from official website and install the rpm package

 

rpm -ivh skype-2.1.0.81-fc10.i586.rpm

 

Is done.
