problem to install skype on opensuse 10.2
 
I try to install skype-1.4.0.99-suse.i586.rpm and returns me the following error:

Code:

sudo rpm -i skype-1.4.0.99-suse.i586.rpm

warning: skype-1.4.0.99-suse.i586.rpm: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID d66b746e
error: Failed dependencies:
        libQtCore.so.4 is needed by skype-1.4.0.99-suse.i586
        libQtDBus.so.4 is needed by skype-1.4.0.99-suse.i586
        libQtGui.so.4 is needed by skype-1.4.0.99-suse.i586

        libsigc-2.0.so.0 is needed by skype-1.4.0.99-suse.i586


I have installed the libqt4-4.2.1-20.x86_64.rpm package but tells me that does not find the libraries, but they are in /usr/lib64. I have tried with "su".

My path var=

/home/myuser/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/usr/sbin:/bin:/usr/games:/opt/gnome/bin:/opt/kde3/bin:/usr/lib64/jvm/jre/bin:/usr/lib/mit/bin:/usr/lib/mit/sbin

I tried to add /usr/lib64 to path var but I obtain the same result.

Try the static binary. Might not be the perfect solution but you can try it.

dissident_goodchild 10-04-2007 12:19 PM

Thanks for your response.

With static bin:

./skype: error while loading shared libraries: libQtDBus.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Let's get back on topic, is a problem of RPM version or OS?

Hi dissidend_goodchild.

I tried to install skype 1.4 on SuSe 10.2, but with no success. I can send you the working-older-version which I have saved.

colucix 10-04-2007 12:33 PM

Since skype is a 32-bit application (i586 suffix), you can try to install the 32 bit version of the required libraries. They will not interfere with 64-bit libraries, since they will be installed in /usr/lib and not in /usr/lib64. Only the documentation stuff will be overwritten, but as far as I know it is the same for 32-bit or 64-bit version.

dissident_goodchild 10-04-2007 07:49 PM

Already I read it to try an old version...

Clearly, get it! It happened in Ubuntu and I had to seek ten of libraries and dependences in 32-bit, I finished installing from Automatix2. I will try to install Qt 32-bit...

Thanks

dissident_goodchild 10-04-2007 09:12 PM

solved
 
Ready, I had to uninstall Qt4-x86 because generated conflicts, and then to install Qt4-i586, with SMART.

The installation of skype I achieved with the terminal: "rpm -i <package>" because with the Software Installer gave conflicts.

Something it occurs by have not Qt4-x86 installed in a computer with this architecture?

As far as I have read Skype just does NOT install on 64 bit systems, period ! :(

I can't install it on openSUSE 10.3 neither... That sucks !
It is a 32 bit Gnome only version...

Hi el amigo,

No problem, I installed it on my comp running SUSE 10.3. You have to use "rpm -ihv >skype<*.rpm. If you get the dependencies error message, just try and install them by YAST. Of course you should have all repos(community and software)installed too.

As of Skype, it took a bit of homework...But it works now, in openSUSE 10.3, Gnome edition.

First, I had to read better the Skype website :

Software requirements

* Qt 4.2.1+
* D-Bus 1.0.0
* libsigc++ 2.0.2
* libasound2 1.0.12

I couldn't get everything, so I went to terminal, and typed :
rpm -ivh skype-1.4.0.118-suse.i586.rpm

It said I needed this lib :
libqt4-x11 (Qt 4 libraries which are used for drawing widgets and OpenGL items.)

Once installed, everything worked !

I am glad it worked out, but I wish it would have been simpler...

Well I think it is simple. You just have to read what it said when installing.That was my problem too.

One must have in mind that it is an application of 32-bit and that it is necessary to install the 32-bit dependent libs, and not 64-Bit, if you follow this instructions you won´t have any more problems with this type of applications in 64-Bit.

They are different architectures.
