Skype version or?


Don't know where I'm going wrong, except maybe version number.

Installed fresh Slackware 13.1 x64, first thing I did was followed all the steps in Slackware:multilib. Then I downloaded skype from their page, version 2.1.0.81 and script from slackbuild but for version 2.0.0.72.

In Slackbuild howto, with example of chemtool, it states
Quote:
If your version of chemtool is newer than what is specified in the SlackBuild script, you will need to change the script accordingly. Using your preferred editor, open the chemtool.SlackBuild script and find the line which starts with "VERSION"

VERSION=1.6.7

Change this line to reflect the current version of the chemtool source.
so I changed the version number, and following info in Multilib - compiling_32-bit_programs I changed ARCH to ARCH=x86_64
Considering LIBDIRSUFFIX="64", couldn't find anything related to it so figured it's not that.

I ran
Code:
. /etc/profile.d/32dev.sh
./skype.SlackBuild
and after that went to tmp and installed package. Everything seemed to go fine but when I try to run it inside KDE it is just loading for long time and then nothing.

Output from ldd:

        libXdmcp.so.6 => /usr/lib/libXdmcp.so.6 (0xf6112000)
seems fine but if I try running skype I get
Code:
./skype
Segmentation fault
Output from zgrep:
Code:
zgrep IA32 /proc/config.gz
CONFIG_IA32_EMULATION=y
# CONFIG_IA32_AOUT is not set
Seen someone asking for output from zgrep on other post so guess it's helpful, and output from "ls -1 /var/log/packages/*" is http://pastebin.com/yAa8ukSZ

Though seems that this guy used same version of skype as slackbuild and missed few packages which as far as I can see, I haven't.

I managed to fix that skype issue by removing the strip line from the slackbuild. That was on pure 32 bit though, but it may work.

:P One problem, I'm newbie so... I'm supposed to remove whole line
Code:
find $PKG | xargs file | grep -e "executable" -e "shared object" | grep ELF \
  | cut -f 1 -d : | xargs strip --strip-unneeded 2> /dev/null || true
or just part of it so I would get
Code:
find $PKG | xargs file | grep -e "executable" -e "shared object" | grep ELF \
  | cut -f 1 -d : || true

I deleted it all - it's all one command.
