skype on centos 5.1


To whom it may concern,

I am trying to install beta skype for centos 5.1 on my ibm laptop and when I run the command for the import of the key it does not work. This is what comes up:

rpm --import rpm-public-key.asc
error: rpm-public-key.asc: import read failed(-1).

What should I do? They say on the howto that I should turn this option off in /etc/yum.conf how do I turn it off? Any other suggestions would be much appreciated.

You could always just download the rpm, straight from skype.com, instead of using yum.

What about the public key problem? Do I need the key to install skype or can I just do a localinstall?

You don't need the key if you download it right from skype.com.
