I you just want to test video (linux alsa oss doesnt work for
recording yet), you can install that rpm using rpm2cpio like described
under `Installing a Random Linux RPM Based Application' here:

 If you do want to test a mic look at this linux pulseaudio libs PR:

 I have yet to test the new rpm netchild built (thanx!), once that
works I think I (or someone else :) can commit an updated version
of that PR; until then you'll need a symlink; and you also need
need to disable mmap for the mic, see here:

 And for the current skype apparently you also need to install
dns/linux-f10-libasyncns .

 I hope that's all...  (Sorry I don't remember all the details of
what exactly I did... :( )
