I just installed Skype for openSuse... RPM installation went fine however when I tried running the program I get the following error message: skype: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libQtNetwork.so.4: undefined symbol: _ZN14QObjectPrivate15checkWindowRoleEv
I'm running skype with no problems on my debian box. I've got libqt4-network version 4.4.3-2 package installed. Which version do you have? Also it seems google-earth uses its own version of libQtNetwork.so.4 so much sure that is not mixing up skype.
Skype also has downloads for a static version of Skype - that one should not have any external dependencies, though application size will be larger. You should also note that Skype doesn't put too much ambition into keeping distro-specific packages up-to-date - most of these are quite outdated.
ok, I found a "temporary solution" to my issue. After I got my SKYPE working the first time I wasn't able to run Nessus so I copied /nessus/lib to /lib and that solved my Nessus issue but damaged my Skype. After trying many things such as re-installing libQtNetwork.so.4 I decided to erase the /nessus/lib files that I copied to /lib, that solved my Skype issue however I can't run Nessus.
I added /nessus/lib to ld.so.conf, rebooted my machine and now Nessus works but SKYPE doesnt! grrrr well hopefully I will be able to find a permanent solution.
At least I'm glad I won't have to use M$crosoft to run Skype! lol
