Skype download script.
« on: February 08, 2009, 06:34:13 PM »
Thanks to jpeters we have a downloading and extension building script for Skype as the license prohibits unauthorized third party distribution.  I contributed to the script, jpeters will be the extension maintainer. 

Code: [Select]
Title: skype_installscript.tce
Description: loads skype_installscript into usr bin. Script creates
wgets "getskype linux-oss" from http://www.skype.com/go
and then builds skype.tce into your /tmp directory.
Version: 1.0
Author Jason W; listed and maintained by jpeters
Original-site Extensions TinyCore Linux
Copying-policy Jason's a flexible guy. The skype package is another matter,
and is governed by the SKYPE END USER LICENSE AGREEMENT that
comes with the package.
Extension_by: jpeters
Comments: This script helps comply with skype licensing. Installation:
1. from terminal, type: 'tce-load skype_installscript.tce'
2. run "skype installation script" from menu
3. wait until skype.tce is built into your /tmp directory
4. copy skype.tce into your tc repository for automatic loading

NOTE: It takes some time to complete downloading and building
skype.tce in the background; go have lunch!

when I launch skype I get this error:
/usr/local/skype/skype: error while loading shared libraries: libasound.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

so I downloaded alsa.tcel, renamed to alsa.tgz, executed emelfm, double click to alsa.tgz in order to extract it, went to /tmp/.emelfm-unpack
and copied
/tmp/.emelfm-unpack/usr/local/lib/libasound.la, libasound.so, libasound.so.2, libasound.so.2.0.0
to
/usr/local/lib/libasound.la
/usr/local/lib/libasound.so
/usr/local/lib/libasound.so.2
/usr/local/lib/libasound.so.2.0.0

and added this lines to /opt/.filetool.lst:
usr/local/lib/libasound.la
usr/local/lib/libasound.so
usr/local/lib/libasound.so.2
usr/local/lib/libasound.so.2.0.0

and then I need to add
ldconfig &
in /opt/bootlocal.sh

and now skype works

JLS,
I will add alsa.tcel to the .dep file as I believe I remember that even though OSS is used it requires alsa libs present in the system.
