HOWTO Skype 3 with Wine
1. Install Wine 0.9.40 (verified) and begin with a fresh ~./wine directory.
2. Install Skype 184.108.40.206 (verified) from http://www.skype.com and the SkypeSetup.exe file. The installer should run flawlessly.
Run #winecfg and select Windows 98 mode for Skype.exe if it's not
already done. You may use the ALSA sound driver with this program,
however OSS will work just as well.
4. Use Skype!
- Skype cannot login unless Win98 mode is selected, however after initial login, any modern Windows mode can be used.
