Installing Skype

I was dual booting Windows XP and Linux as I used XP for MSN voice conferencing. Since most people I know are now running Skype, A Linux solution was very welcomed.

Installing via YUM.

You can install Skype using yum by creating /etc/yum.repos.d/skype

name=Skype Repository

Then issuing a command of

# yum install skype

This will install the required dependencies for you. You can also use the yum repo to keep Skype up to date during your normal yum updates.
