[Package] Skype x86_64 RPM for Fedora

[ Edited ]

Hi! 


Just wanted to comment that I've successfully made a 64 bit RPM Fedora package
for the last available version of Skype for Linux (2.2 BETA) and it works awesome! Just came to post it here in case the Skype developers see it and maybe get interested. I also want to mention that I did not make anthing illegal while making this package and also it's worth to mention that the package may
also work on OpenSUSE, Mandriva and other RPM Distros (But I'm not sure as I didn't test that); it would be great if you test the package and give me some feedback :wink:

If you're interested, you can download the package from:



And if you like it, I would like that someone makes it available from the official downloads page, so the users can choose it/get it officially if they're interested.

Thanks For Your Attention,

Have a Nice Day!!

Re: [Package] Skype x86_64 RPM for Fedora

What is the solution for the upside down camera. I could fix that in 32 bit version on 64 bit Fedora 16.

The 32 bit skype can be installed on 64 bit fedora by downloading the 32 bit rpm of skype and installing following dependencies,

# yum -y install libXv.i686 libXScrnSaver.i686 qt.i686 qt-x11.i686 pulseaudio-libs.i686 pulseaudio-libs-glib2.i686 alsa-plugins-pulseaudio.i686 libv4l.i686
# yum -y install skype-2.2.0.35-fedora.i586.rpm (after downloading from skype.com)
# mv /usr/bin/skype /usr/bin/skype.main

and place the following content in "/usr/bin/skype"
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
#!/bin/bash
export LIBV4LCONTROL_FLAGS=3
LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so /usr/bin/skype.main
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Make it executable
# chmod 755 /usr/bin/skype

Re: [Package] Skype x86_64 RPM for Fedora

Hi,

 

I've just installed your package by

yum install skype-2.2.0.35-2.x86_64.rpm
but it again installs the whole bunch of 32-bit libraries... as the "official" 32-bit one does.

 

What am I missing?

 

Many thanks for your kind effort !!

 

Cheers,

- Anatoly

Re: [Package] Skype x86_64 RPM for Fedora

Thanks, it works!
The skype-2.2.0.35-2.x86_64.rpm package works fine on a Fedora Core 16 64b. Previously, I had to uninstall the previous version (skype-2.2.0.35-fedora.i586.rpm) in order to avoid conflicts.

Re: [Package] Skype x86_64 RPM for Fedora

Ok, today skype 64bit started segfaulting on f16 for me.  I guess I have to go back to 32bit version, unless you have any ideas?  I even tried rebooting and moving .Skype dir.  no go.
