the skype package all-in-one for 32 and 64 bit is ready for testing (was skype_static). After testing I will upload it on the slacky.eu repositories.
http://files.z01.eu/skype/

it includes:
- skype
- speex
- json-c
- pulseaudio
- 32bit libraries for 64bit package
so you does not need to install any other packages.

nothing is installed in system paths (only one link in /lib; warning, it *may* conflicts with other multilibs if installed, but not overwrite these).

Pulseaudio here is not invasive and the configuration is in $HOME/.asoundrc; default configuration should be sufficient.
Pulseaudio is not started at boot as daemon but from skype start script and does not take the full control of hardware.

Only install and start skype; no reboot needed.
If you have the old skype_static package you should uninstall it instead upgrade.


please give me feedback.

edit: the 32bit version have a missing files now; download asoundrc.sample from slackbuild directory and copy it in /usr/share/skype

Just to see if I got this right: I only need to install that package and that is it?

unfortunatly this skype version conflicts with the multilibs in -current (glibc 2.19; should works in -stable glibc 2.17).

unlike skype_static, with skype 4.3 is not possible to use the ld-linux.so

So I was able to put all libraries in /usr/share/skype except the link ld-linux.so, that the installer copy in /lib if it does not found the multilib installed.

On one pc I've the same problem (use current+multilib)

The installer advise you.

Code:
Executing install script for skype-4.3.0.37-x86_64-1sl.txz.

Warning! Detected an already present 32bit subsystem
Package skype-4.3.0.37-x86_64-1sl.txz installed.
With the skype_static method I obtain an unresolved error:
Code:
$ /usr/share/skype/lib/ld-linux.so.2 --library-path /usr/share/skype/lib /usr/share/skype/skype 
YgOvNzBTDSSiOIWW7MsnwfFkxDZ+TaanDDlpOc+8ng
YgOvNzBTDSSiOIWW7MsnwfFkxDZ+TaanDDlpOc+8ng
Aborted
try that workaround:
modify /usr/bin/skype:
Code:
sudo mv /lib/ld-linux.so.2 /lib/ld-linux.so.2-tmp
sudo ln -s /usr/share/skype/lib/ld-linux.so.2 /lib
LD_PRELOAD=$LIB32/libv4l/v4l1compat.so \
PULSE_LATENCY_MSEC=60 \
  $SKYPE/skype &
sudo mv /lib/ld-linux.so.2-tmp /lib/ld-linux.so.2
wait
(you must configure sudo) *

is not a good thing, but it works.

for pulseaudio remove the ~/.config/pulse directory and be sure that another pulseaudio installation does not conflict.

I've no other pulseaudio installation, so I cannot test it.


edit: * otherwise rebuild for current and it should works (currently I've not a 32bit -current installation to do that)

Hi zerouno,

That is a pity, that it conflicts with an existing installation of multilib. I will have to think about this, because moving system files around just to get Skype working is not a nice thing to do.
How did you find out that the glibc was conflicting and causing the segfault/

I don't like to copy files on system paths, but I not found solution.

I will try to build the package in -current, so package should works without copy nothing on system paths when there are multilibs already installed.
Notice that the installer does not copy nothing in /lib if there are already present the multilib.


However should be a problem with the 'madvise' system call:

Code:
$ strace /usr/share/skype/lib/ld-linux.so.2 --library-path /usr/share/skype/lib /usr/share/skype/skype
...
madvise(0xff990000, 1, MADV_WILLNEED)   = 0
...
(I found something in internet but not the solution)


Launching as
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/share/skype/lib /usr/share/skype/skype

there is the conflict becouse in /usr/share/skype/lib I've glibc 2.17 but the command is launched by glibc 2.19 from system.

On a side note: this project looks quite promising as an alternative to Skype.

I'm running 64bit Slackware current without multilib.

I grabed your slackbuild and other files from http://files.z01.eu/skype/skype-repo.../4.3.0.37/src/, but had no luck with it:
