I was just wondering if I could get some assistance with this. Basically skype doesn't seem to want to run. It was working just fine yesterday and even though I am tracking -current, the last updates were Apr. 11, so I don't think they're the reason behind this.
Basically, here is the error:
Fatal: QWidget: Must construct a QApplication before a QPaintDevice
I've googled this already and two results popped up. One about the program prelink which I don't have installed, and the other is about not having all compat32 packages installed that the skype binary requires.
I double checked that I had the compat32 packages by:
1. Re-installing all the compat32 packages after re-downloading them.
2. I re-checked to make sure each shared object that skype links against actually existed on my system (and they do).
I'm at a loss on what the problem might be. I haven't removed a package recently or upgraded anything other than the updates from Apr. 11th. and the multilib stuff.
Does anybody hopefully have any ideas on what might be going on?
