Hello All!

Troubles after updating Skype to
/Programs/Skype2.0.0.72/share/skype/skype: error while loading shared
libraries: /Programs/Skype2.0.0.72/autolibs/libc.so.6: ELF file OS ABI
Application crashed.
In /usr/ports/UPDATING I found this:
  AFFECTS: users of net/skype net/skype-devel
  AUTHOR: beech at FreeBSD.org

  For FreeBSD versions 7.0 and above:

  It is required with both skype and skype-devel to update to
  Please do the following:

  1. Make sure there are no running linux applications.
  2. Unmount linprocfs (umount /compat/linux/proc)
  3. Uninstall your current linux_base port
  4. Set appropriate sysctl (sysctl compat.linux.osrelease=2.6.16)
  5. Install emulators/linux_base-fc6
  6  Remount linprocfs (mount /compat/linux/proc)
  7. Add compat.linux.osrelease=2.6.16 to etc/sysctl.conf
  8. Add OVERRIDE_LINUX_BASE_PORT=fc6 to /etc/make.conf

  Note: These instructions also apply to linux_base-f8, please use the same

  For FreeBSD versions 5.x and 6.x:

  Please use the legacy version net/skype12:

        portupgrade -o net/skype12 net/skype

May be it's helpfull...
