[opensuse] What do you use for skype?
Hi, my daughter has an online job and her windows vista has died to the point where it needs an install disk to fix, her boyfriend did something wrong. So daddy's going to install Leap:42.1, which I've already run from another disk on her computer in the past so I know it works. One thing that she needs that is missing is skype. I need to get this setup this morning as she's already missed a couple of days of work.
I've looked around, skype offers an openSUSE:12.1 i586 rpm - no good for x86_64, Ubuntu / Debian have the latest x86_64/x86 versions. I found a couple of packages in obs home repos and one home repo in PMBS (packman obs). I copied and updated the PMBS package with the latest skype-4.3.0.37.tar.bz2 in my PMBS home repo and there doesn't seem to be a problem so I can't understand why nobody in openSUSE bothers with skype. Is there a working, easy to setup with an existing skype account, alternative?
Thanks
Dave Plater
