[Resolved] Skype crashed on Fedora 19

Running Skype on Fedora 19 gets core dumped immediately.

By luck I found a workaround using mesa-libGL library from Fedora 17.

  1. Download the mesa-libGL-8.0.4-1.fc17.i686.rpm from Fedora, or get it here.
  2. Extract the rpm file.
    • $ rpm2cpio mesa-libGL-8.0.4-1.fc17.i686.rpm | cpio -idv
  3. Run skype with the library.
    • $ LD_LIBRARY_PATH=usr/lib /usr/bin/skype

That seems working fine for me.
