Skype in Fedora 14 X64

Install  Skype in Fedora14  64bit?
As we know, there is  no  Skype 64bit  available,
So here we use i686  packages to install skype in 64bit.
Our current system is :

[LINUX@fedora-home ~]$ uname -a
Linux fedora-home #1 SMP Mon Nov 29 15:36:08 
UTC 2010 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
To install Skype 32 bit in a 64 bit system we need to install some dependencies using yum:
yum  install libXv.i686 libXScrnSaver.i686 qt.i686 qt-x11.i686 
pulseaudio-libs.i686 pulseaudio-libs-glib2.i686 
alsa-plugins-pulseaudio.i686  -y
Now  download  Skype  from official website and install the rpm package
rpm -ivh skype-
And now
