Angry Process /usr/bin/skype was killed by signal 11 (SIGSEGV)

I installed Skype following this procedure in Fedora release 16 (Verne)
1) su
2) wget http://commondatastorage.googleapis....5-2.x86_64.rpm
3) sudo yum -y install libXv.i686 libXScrnSaver.i686 qt.i686 qt-x11.i686 pulseaudio-libs.i686 pulseaudio-libs-glib2.i686 alsa-plugins-pulseaudio.i686
This step threw this exception:
Error: Versiónes multilib protegidas: 1:qt-4.8.2-2.fc16.i686 != 1:qt-4.8.1-5.fc16.x86_64
Error: Versiónes multilib protegidas: 1:qt-x11-4.8.2-2.fc16.i686 != 1:qt-x11-4.8.1-5.fc16.x86_64
but i continued with step 4
4)yum localinstall skype-

It worked well when I installed. But when I tried to open it again it does not, instead shows me this msg:

"process /usr/bin/skype was killed by signal 11 (SIGSEGV)"

What can I do?

Usually a bid bit of code, a sig11 is basically a seg fault which means that a piece of memory that it is attempting to allocate or read does not exist at the location it believes it to be.

Uninstall and reinstall.


fedora 16, sigsegv, skype
