Skype on OpenSolaris! The last missing part it's real!

What are you doing if the road is blocked? Probably trying to find a detour.
So what if the Skype is not working natively on OpenSolaris? Here is the recipe which will allow you to use your Skype account, send messages and do VoIP with video support.
First of all you will need to get the flash plugin for your Firefox. It's very easy, just follow the blog entry from John Rice.
Secondly simply use the IMO website and allow flash plugin to access your microphone and camera (you will be prompted when you will start some VoIP chat).
The only thing I had to do was to increase Recording volume using Volume Applet and the one from the flash plugin settings -right click on the VoIP window, when you are talking to someone and choose "Settings..." from the flash plugin menu.
