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:

# libQtCore.so.1 is needed by skype-2.0.0.72-fc5.i586
# libQtDBus.so.1 is needed by skype-2.0.0.72-fc5.i586
...
# libXss.so.1 is needed by skype-2.0.0.72-fc5.i586

Then I tried
# yum install qt-x11.i386
# yum install libXScrnSaver.i386
# rpm -ivh skype-2.0.0.72-fc5.i586.rpm

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:
# libgssapi_krb5.so.2()(64bit) 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
http://www.skype.com/download/skype/linux/choose/
you might try the prebuilt tar ball's and not use the old fedora 5 .rpm
http://www.skype.com/go/getskype-linux-dynamic
or
http://www.skype.com/go/getskype-linux-static

have you Google/linux searched?

Cool

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

http://en.opensuse.org/Skype

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.
