Skype after ia32-libs update?


I have skype installed from

deb http://people.debian.org/~rafael/skype-amd64 ./

but after ia32-libs upgrade, skype does not work any more:

$ skype
skype: error while loading shared libraries: libXv.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I think this is because /emul/ia32-linux/usr/lib/libXv.so.1 does not exist in the new version of ia32-libs (that is a dummy package, by the way). My first try was to write to skype amd64's maintainer, but as displayed at the bottom of http://people.debian.org/~rafael, he left Debian.

So I would like to ask whether some of you got skype working, and how. Also, if there is any IT-knowledgable here, would anyone fancy maintaining skype in amd64 from now on? :-)

Thank you very much in advance,
