VOIP Driver HELP (Skype)

Hello All:

I bought a great little VOIP phone for use with Skype. It is detected fine by the USB daemon on my Fedora Core 6 box and there is an RPM driver from the manufacturer of the phone for FC3... it doesn't run because it is looking for an older library and the manufacturer (as of yet) has not released a new version (that I can find) for the driver -- called SkypeMate.

I am wondering if anyone has used one of these phones successfully under FC6 and if so, would like to figure out how you fixed the issue.

The error I am getting is:

[jmneedham@localhost bin]$ ./SkypeMate
./SkypeMate: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
And I have confirmed that the libdbus library is in fact installed, but is a newer version. This driver is not open source, so compiling the code myself is not an option.

There is a replacement to SkpeMate on the following link called kb2Kskype.

I had it working on F6 and now on F7 although I am having problems
with sound which I think is my SB16 sound card

I hope this helps.
