I downloaded skype for Fedora 10+ from the official skype website and tried to install it on my fedora 11 machine by running the following command

rpm -Uvh skype-2.1.0.47-fc10.i586.rpm
and got the following error

error: unpacking of archive failed on file /usr/bin/skype;4b15470f: cpio: read
What could be wrong.

Corrupted rpm, maybe?
