The skype port has been upgraded to version 18.104.22.168. This requires a
change to run. After upgrading, please do: "sysctl
from a terminal. Also add: "compat.linux.osrelease=2.6" to your
/etc/sysctl.conf to make this change at boot time. Also,
been removed from the ports tree. All skype users are encouraged to
the latest version.
I personally jumped for linux_base-f7 and linuxolator 2.6, I have
installed and linux_dri
and new skype seems to work perfect.
I only once saw some warning about inotify call not implemented or
something like this ...
