I just finished installing and configuring skype on F11 Pre. Get the
"static" tar.bz2 file and untar. when you run the skype executable. it
will complain about a bunch of missing .so files. INstall one by one and
you can then launch skype. You may have to try a few tricks to get the
audio working properly since skype is coded for ALSA. PLay around with
the Sound Devices config in Skype's Options Menu..
