    Does anyone has up and running Skype?

    Had no success with both:
    net/skype12 - built, but can't log in
    net/skype - port marked as broken.

    Is there any chance to run linux build of skype?

    Skype 2 is running fine for me on 8, although I only use it for IM. I don't have a working mic so can't comment on the VOIP aspect.

    From memory I can't remember how I installed it but I didn't do anything fancy. Most likely just built from ports.

    Not sure if that helps!

    I have Skype running fine (chat and talk) on PC BSD 8 (which has FreeBSD 8 underneath) on Thinkpad T42.

    This version after install I see empty contact lists, no balance (status says Online). It's only on mine or something known?
