Skype not working with latest util-linux?
I've found that my skype stopped working with recent -current updates ( around beta ... ). It was looking for a libuuid.so.1 library - on checking I found the 64-bit version but no 32-bit version - quite strange as this has been working fine since my original slackware64 13.0 installation. Anyhow, I got the 32-bit util-linux package, did the 32-bit package convert thing and skype is now working:
1. convertpkg-compat32 -i util-linux-ng-2.17.2-i486-1.txz
3. copy the libuuid lib to /lib and soft-link in /usr/lib
I didn't install the whole compat package as this is not really necessary I think.
