Or maybe this will prod the Skype team to actually update their Linux
client? It's long overdue. They supposedly have a version in closed
beta that works natively with Pulseaudio.
You can find there, unsigned so far, skype-188.8.131.52-fc10.i586.rpm
(and another one for f9). On that web page you will see in
* Video card driver with Xv support.
* Software requirements
* Qt 4.2.1+
* D-Bus 1.0.0
* libasound2 1.0.12
* PulseAudio 0.9.10+ (optional)
* PulseAudio 0.9.15+ (optional recommended)
Only ldd on binaries give for ssl the same as above; which is not a
big surprise if you have "fc10" in a package name. Well, the one
currently released says "fc5", even if "fc5" works with Fedora 11,
so this is quite a progress. :-)
Yes, there is a static version too; but a security update in an
underlying library will blow a big hole in such option.
