Skype on Fedora 14
Skype works on 64 bit system for me. I use fedora 14 and 15 too. the
only problem, when you install skype it cannot use the 64 bit libraries.
so you need to get the 32 bit libs which needs by skype.
you can simply install it with the following rules:
open a terminal
type skype and press enter.
There will be error messages that what file is missing.
try a yum whatprovides xy.so
you get a list, which package is contain the missing .so file.
after you get the name of the package, tra to install the 32bit version
of the package: yum install -y packagename_and_version.i686
after it's done, repeat the procedure above again.
skype needs many of libs and so files, so be patient.
maybe, you will need the rpmfusion free and rpmfusion nonfree
I hope your success.
these packages need to be installed (but it's for fedora 13...), and
glibc-2.12-3.i686 alsa-lib-1.0.23-1.fc13.i686 libXv-1.0.5-1.fc13.i686
libXScrnSaver-1.2.0-1.fc12.i686 libQtDBus.so.4 qt-4.6.3-8.fc13.i686
