Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I try to install skype-188.8.131.52-suse.i586.rpm and returns me the following error:

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