I'm trying to install Skype in 12.04LTS.
It fails to install from the Software Center, complains about
skype-bin being a virtual package.
skype-bin fails to install from apt-get, requires ia32-libs.
Several online sources pointed to the installation of
ia32-libs-multiarch. Fair enough.
Tried to install
apt-get. Another several dependencies from 32bit packages that are on hold. Each package has another 4, 5 32bit package dependencies on hold. Really, this is hell.
How can I tell Ubuntu to not hold anything, to just install the frigging packages and its dependencies?
