Installing Skype on Fedora 18 Beta

Hello all,

I’ve just installed Skype (skype-4.1.0.20-fedora.i586.rpm) on my Fedora 18 Beta version of Linux and I thought I’d share the dependencies with everyone as I have done in the past.

If you get a root terminal up and execute this command:

[code]yum install alsa-lib.i686 qt-x11.i686 qt.i686 qtwebkit.i686 libXScrnSaver.i686[/code]

that should pull in all the relevant dependencies required to get skype installed.

Then, download Skype from their website and install that RPM and it shouldn’t complain about missing any files.
