Cool Conflicts on FC10 for Skype installation

Hello Everybody,

I have a conflict on Fedora-10 for Skype installation on x84_64. I have tried:

# rpm -ivh skype*
but then comes:

# is needed by skype-
# is needed by skype-
# is needed by skype-

Then I tried
# yum install qt-x11.i386
# yum install libXScrnSaver.i386
# rpm -ivh skype-

what gives
#Test Transaction Errors: package krb5-libs-1.6.3-17.fc10.x86_64 (which is newer than krb5-libs-1.6.3-16.fc10.i386) is already installed


then I tried
# rpm -e krb5-libs-1.6.3-17.fc10.x86_64

what gives the error:
# is needed by (installed) cupsddk-drivers-1.2.3-5.fc10.x86_64

So, I cannot install the package E, because it needs C. But C cannot be installed, because it conflicts with D, which is installed yet, but D is not allowed to be uninstalled, because it is need for F.

Some hints?.....????

first installing the fedora 5 rpm( 32 bit ) on fedora 10 ( 64 bit) mostlikely will not work

i take it is this one
you might try the prebuilt tar ball's and not use the old fedora 5 .rpm

have you Google/linux searched?

here is what I've done... moved to openSuse as my desktop environment.

I noticed that openSuse has a much more updated set of softwares and packages, what makes the life painless. It worked without hurdle.

About Fedora, I don't know exactly why, while the ISO is moving fast for the next FC11 release, Skype is still on FC7 version.

I keep Solaris and Fedora for other purposes in my notebook too.
