Skype

First you must install the Skype repository. Open a terminal and type:

$ sudo nano /etc/yum.repos.d/skype.repo
In that file copy the following lines:

[skype]
name=Skype Repository
baseurl=http://download.skype.com/linux/repos/fedora/updates/i586/
enabled=0
gpgkey=http://www.skype.com/products/skype/linux/rpm-public-key.asc
gpgcheck=1
Now you can easily install skype by typing:

$ sudo yum –enablerepo=skype install skype
At any time you can search for updates like that:

$ sudo yum –enablerepo=skype update skype
If you are asked if it is ok to import the GPG signature just type y and press Enter.
