        qt4-x11 >= 4.2 is needed by skype-

But - then:
[root home1 skype-]# yum list available |grep libQt
[root home1 skype-]#

So none of these necessary dependency rpms is available in f8!

On the other hand the static tarball will unpack and run in F8.

This is reported at

Just install qt4 and qt4-x11. If you read the Skype download page it tells you you need qt4. I too have install Skype 2.x and once I installed the dependencies, it installed fine.
