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 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
2. un-archive
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.

Good to hear that worked. I think I have the same thing going on with Debian Sid. I'll try this and see if it works.
