There is an ongoing lawsuit in the UK between Skype and StreamCast. I
suppose that eBay might shut Skype down if they are not able to either
settle or find an alternative technology, but my guess is that they will
find a way. It's a complicated suit because of the fact that there were
contracts involved that did license the technology.

Skype runs fine on my Fedora 11 64-bit. Here is what I did to get it
working, thanks for Fedora Forum:
As root:
yum install alsa-oss
modprobe snd-mixer-oss
modprobe snd-pcm-oss

Then as non-root:
aoss -32 skype

I do run Skype from the Gnome menu, but try the 'aoss -32 skype' first.
