Why "yum install qtwebkit.i686" this is not available.


I was trying to configure skype in Redhat linux 6.0. Configured everything but when run
#skype
The following error comes:
/opt/skype/skype: error while loading shared libraries: libQtWebKit.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Then tried to install
#yum install qtwebkit.i686

Output:

No package qtwebkit.i686 available.

Can anybody tell me why this package is not available. and where from i can get the rpm for this?

Login as root
Architecture 32bit.

Thank You
Satya Chamoli

Welcome to LQ.

# yum install qtwebkit.i686
.. is OK, when you setup the EPEL repo https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL
→ → http://ftp.crc.dk/fedora-epel/6/i386...l-release.html
http://ftp.crc.dk/fedora-epel/6/i386...6-8.noarch.rpm
→ # rpm -Uvh epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm

That's to be expected. The Linux version of skype is always far behind that of Windows. The current skype version for Linux is: 4.2.0.11 and only a 32 bit version is available. Compare that version with the current Windows version number and your question will be answered.

Re post #5, @doctore.

Well, it's still there :
http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel.../qtwebkit.html

May be reinstall epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm
http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel...l-release.html
>> http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel...6-8.noarch.rpm
# yum reinstall Downloads/epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm

I actually found it at nux-dextop repo, for anyone in the future looking for the package. Because of this, I didn't try reinstalling epel, but might, just in case
Thanks for the advice, though!
