The Skype web site:

Even though it says Fedora 10, it works w/o any issue on my x86_64
default install of 11, 12, & 13. is the latest it seems.


Create repo file:
gedit /etc/yum.repos.d/skype.repo

Put into skype.repo:
name=Skype Repository

Install skype:
yum install skype


If it's being really a pain try:

# curl
tokn-freebl-3.12.4-19.fc13.i686.rpm -o
# yum install nss-softokn-freebl-3.12.4-19.fc13.i686.rpm
# yum install alsa-lib.i686 dbus-libs.i686 e2fsprogs-libs.i686
expat.i686 fontconfig.i686 freetype.i686 glib2.i686 glibc.i686
keyutils-libs.i686 krb5-libs.i686 libcap.i686 libgcc.i686 libICE.i686
libpng.i686 libselinux.i686 libSM.i686 libstdc++.i686 libX11.i686
libXau.i686 libxcb.i686 libXcursor.i686 libXdmcp.i686 libXext.i686
libXfixes.i686 libXi.i686 libXinerama.i686 libXrandr.i686
libXrender.i686 libXScrnSaver.i686 libXv.i686 openssl.i686 qt.i686
qt-x11.i686 zlib.i68
# yum install libv4l.i686

Then install Skype.

If video doesn't work for some reason:

Start skype using the command:
env LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/ skype
