Re: [opensuse] Cannot install Skype -- cpio: read failed - Bad file descriptor

thanks for the answer.
I thought there would finally be a 64bit build of skype. Now I know there is
not so I'll continue to use the one from the skype page.

skype source is not available. I simply packaged the statically linked
binary files available from skype website, after applying some simple
workarounds for a better integration with the openSuSE distribution. I
did that for personal use. Some friends of mine found those packages
useful reason why I decided to make them available from my website. I
explained what I did, when I published the packages for the first

cool, unfortunately there is no new skype package for 11.2.
Where did you get the skype source?
Or better: where can I get the skype source to build myself?

There is no source for skype. You can extract files from rpm or use
tar archive (dynamic linked) from skype website.

So how did Francesco "build" a 64 pakage?
Or does this mean that even in his 64 package is "only" the 32 build
from the skype website?

I guess, yes. But let him answer and explain ;)
