How I installed Skype on 64bit Fedora 64

yes... installing skype on fedora 64 bit is tricky.... there are some tutorials on the net, but i made it a bit different.

i downloaded the fedora package, and then i needed to install the following packages as well:

yum install glibc-2.13-1.i686
yum install glibc-2.13-1.i686
yum install alsa-lib-1.0.24-1.fc14.i686
yum install libXv-1.0.5-1.fc13.i686
yum install libXScrnSaver-1.2.0-1.fc12.i686
yum install 1:qt-4.7.2-8.fc14.i686
yum install qt-x11-4.7.2-8.fc14.i686

this then did the trick

after that i could run skype on the fedora 14 machine.
