Question Skype on FC5?

Has any of you tried to install Skype on FC5? I am wondering if the rpm on will work, since it's for FC3.

The FC3 RPM worked fine for me on FC4, you can always uninstall it if it doesn't work...

I just installed the FC3 rpm from skype's website, and it works fine on FC5... but of course the sound problem still exists (the sound device remains busy when you hang up a call). But fortunately this is fixed by renaming the sound played on hangup:

# cd /usr/share/skype/sound/
# ls
busy4.wav  call_in.wav  call_out.wav  hangup.wav  im.wav
# mv hangup.wav hangup.wav-disabled
