I'm using skype- here with as far as I can tell
all functions working.

Installed using 'urpmi --allow-nodeps skype-'

This commandline was taken from a past on the Mandriva Cooker list. The
date was 30 August 2009, poster was Peťoš Šafařík <petos at mandrivalinux.cz>.

I've had no problems using this installation method since then.
