Since installing skype is a bit of a pain, you could consider doing a package
which will download and install it for the user,
You could use auto-downloader for the download. And then pkexec to do the
rpm -i of the rpm from skype.
This way people could still just do yum install skype ...
See the usbview package of an example of using pxexec, and see the vavoom
package for an example of using autodl.
Thanks, I will try; but I'm not sure Skype leaves the tarballs/packages in
place on the servers when a new version comes out and this would need to be
Is an example of using autodl with tarballs also available?
You could then make this a package with the necessary extra requires
if the requires of the skype rpm are complete), and make it ExclusiveArch i686
No, package requirements are missing entirely in Skype's official package;
there are no dependencies at all.
You should then also drop in a /etc/profile.d file with the following
alias skype='PULSE_LATENCY_MSEC=30 skype'
Otherwise audio won't work in F20+, the latter alone is worth doing a wrapper
package like this.
Thanks for the hint, I will do. Does it make any harm on lower Fedora or RHEL
I was also planning to submit the purple-skype plugin after the Skype review;
do you think that could use that as the main "wrapper" package? Spec file and
source rpm here:
Spec URL: http://slaanesh.fedorapeople.org/purple-skype.spec
The x86_64 build runs fine with an installed i686 package.
I will update the Review Request when I will have something more to share;
thanks everybody for inputs.
