FWIW, I had had Skype running fine on 6.0-RELEASE -- then it stopped working for some unknown reason. Symptoms were that the Skype process would start, fire up some child processes, but never bring up any windows.
I upgraded to 6.1-RELEASE, did a portupgrade, and still had the same problem with Skype. After reading that other people still were able to run Skype, I decided to start all over with it: deinstalled net/skype, deinstalled the emulators/linux_base-suse-9.3 that I'd been using, and 'rm -rf /compat/linux/*'. Then, I just:
(that ended up installing linux_base-8)
Although the build/install went fine, Skype wouldn't start due to missing libraries. So I copied them over from a Linux partition (happens to be Gentoo):
And now Skype runs fine again for me. O frabjous day!
