Talking Can't find libdbus-1.so.3 for Suse 10.1


I've tried installing Skype for Linux and need to install libdbus-1.so.3 in order to install libqt4-x11-4.2.1-20.i586.rpm, so I can install Skype. Problem is I can find it only for Mandriva, but not for Suse 10.1. I would be very greatful for a point in the right direction.


Many thanks
Tillus

In Opensuse 10.2 the package dbus-1-1.0.0-7 provides libdbus-1.so.3.
In Opensuse 10.1 the package dbus-1-0.60-30 provides libdbus-1.so.2 and no official update was available. I'm afraid this cannot help you so much...

I found ftp.opensuse.org/distribution/SL-OSS-factory/inst-source/suse/i586/dbus-1-1.0.2-49.i586.rpm and installed it, since I gathered it ends in .i586.rpm. Now I can't start with KDE, but is always assigned to fvwm2, from where it seems I can do nothing. And all this because SUSE can't find /opt/kde3/share/apps/kdm/themes/SUSE.

Can somebody help set this right? Is there perhaps a way to uninstall the package? Or is there some other useful thing to do? I want my desktop back!

Thanks in advance
Tillus

Maybe the trick is to download and install Suse 10.3?

Log into run level 3 or bring up a terminal and type:

rpm -e dbus-1-1.0.2-49.i586.rpm

You installed one for the wrong distro..

I suppose you mean run as root. I did that and got an error message.
error: rpm package dbus-1-1.0.2-49.i586.rpm not installed. Maybe this has something to do with the fact that I chose internet installation (when it worked).

Maybe a theme file would do the trick?

Thanks

You want to uninstall the factory version of dbus guarnteed :P ..

do rpm -qa | grep dbus
then do rpm -e (output of the command above)

I am sure your theme is there, and that isn't the problem..

So remove the dbus you installed.. reboot .. download openSUSE 10.2 and upgrade your 10.1 to 10.2 and that will also have the dbus version you are looking for
