How to Install Skype on Fedora

The steps that I have give here worked in Fedora 13, I cant assure anything about the Fedora 14+. So here are the steps to install Skype on fedora.

1) First of all get the skype downloaded from here.

2) Install it with the help of the command line
sudo yum install skype-
3) If the installation goes fine then well and good for you. in case if it gives some errors that means some dependies are missing in your OS. So you need to pass on the ldd command to know which libraries are missing.
ldd $(which Skype)
4) Use yum provides to know which package provides that files.
sudo yum provides */libXv.so.1
5) It will return a package ?package libXv? so use that accordingly
sudo yum install libXv.i686
6) Here is the last command that you need to pass in your terminal that will install the Skype.
sudo yum install libXv.i686 libXScrnSaver.i686 qt.i686 qt-x11.i686

Suppose In the step 2 you don?t get any error or such then you can directly jump to the step 6 for the installation.

I hope this installation process is pretty much clear for you.
