Skype install problem


I am using SUSE 10, downloaded SKYPE, install is looking for missing LIB files. Anyone knows how to get SKYPE to work. Thanks.

Hi and welcome to LQ.

Can you please provide more details e.g. the names of the missing libraries that Skype needs and any other output you get when you try to install Skype.

It seems like the Skype rpm was built on a newer version of openSUSE (I guess 10.2) because its asking for an updated version of glibc and gtkhtml which are not in the default installation of 10.0. It also needs qt4. Try using a slightly older version of Skype if you can find one.
