    Don’t do it this way:

    ===
    Go to the directory where you just download your Skype package and execute below command to install it.

    # rpm -ivh skype-4.1.0.20-fedora.i586.rpm
    ===

    If you’re using yum to manage your packages, let it do so:

    # yum install skype-4.1.0.20-fedora.i586.rpm

    old versions of yum may require the “localinstall” option when installing from a local file, newer versions do not. Yum will complain loudly if you’ve used rpm to directly install packages because it won’t have a record of the action.
