    Skype on Fedora 13 x86_64

    Skype does work with fedora 13 x86_64 if you install the following dependencies:

    Fedora 13 x86_64:
    Code:
    yum install pulseaudio-libs.i686 pulseaudio-libs-devel.i686 alsa-plugins-pulseaudio.i686 libv4l.i686 libXv.i686 libXv-devel.i686 libXScrnSaver.i686 libXScrnSaver.x86_64 libXScrnSaver-devel.i686 libXScrnSaver-devel.x86_64 qt.i686 qt-devel.i686
    Fedora 12 x86_64:
    Code:
    yum install pulseaudio-libs.i686 pulseaudio-libs-devel.i686 alsa-plugins-pulseaudio.i686 libv4l.i686 libXv.i686 libXv-devel.i686 libXScrnSaver.i686 libXScrnSaver.x86_64 libXScrnSaver-devel.i686 libXScrnSaver-devel.x86_64 dbus-qt.i686 dbus-qt-devel.i686 qt.i686 qt-devel.i686

    Have a good day

    The 64-bit packages for those distros contain the same 32-bit binaries, so it's not truly a 64-bit package. The difference is that their dependencies/metadata is changed to work better with the 64-bit version of those distros.

    I'm getting the following error after the skype-2.1.0.47-fc10.i586 install on a fully patched F11:

    skype: error while loading shared libraries: libXv.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    But that library exists.

    Any ideas? Was that at least part of the problems you encountered?

    Hrrm. I was getting similar errors on F12, x86_64, but in my case, it had to do with the 32 bit, 64 bit thing--fixed by installing the requested libs.

    Is this a 64 bit? If so, do

    yum provides */libXv.so.1

    It will probably come back with something libXv-<version>x86_64, and the same with i586 or i686. I've forgotten when the transition took place

    But, assume this is a 64 bit system and it comes back with that, then you would install it, e.g.,
    yum install libXv.i586 (or 686).

    It's looking for a 32 bit version, at least that was the story on my machine.

    I should have figured that out

    Thanks for waking me up.

    I keep forgetting about 32 & 64 bit differences.

    I'm sure that's it.

    Ah, if so, it should be easy to fix. Install that library. Start skype. Look at the new error message. Curse them. Install the next library. Repeat. (I think it was about three or 4 that I had to put in before it worked, but I really don't remember.)

    Hi!
    Perhaps you can help me.

    I keep getting this dependency error:

    Transaction Check Error:
    package mesa-libGLU-7.6-0.15.fc12.x86_64 (which is newer than mesa-libGLU-7.6-0.13.fc12.i686) is already installed
    I can't remove mesa-libGLU.x86_64 because it builds a large dependecy list with it.

    Do you have any idea of how I could work around this?

    Code:
    yum list mesa-libGLU
    Installed Packages
    mesa-libGLU.i686 7.6-0.13.fc12 @fedora
    mesa-libGLU.x86_64 7.6-0.13.fc12 @anaconda-InstallationRepo-200911081904.x86_64


    I don't know how u ended up with mesa-libGLU-7.6-0.15.fc12.x86_64?

    yum downgrade mesa-libGLU is not an option for this package.

    I tried installing the mesa package that you have:
    Code:
    yum install mesa-libGLU-7.6-0.15.fc12.x86_64
    Setting up Install Process
    No package mesa-libGLU-7.6-0.15.fc12.x86_64 available.

    Code:
    yum install mesa-libGLU.x86_64
    Setting up Install Process
    Package mesa-libGLU-7.6-0.13.fc12.x86_64 already installed and latest version


    What repos do u have enabled?
    Seems ok if you remove the package and then install the correct package.
    Code:
    yum remove mesa-libGLU
    Code:
    yum install mesa-libGLU.x86_64 7.6-0.13.fc12
    I would immediately reinstall the packages that you lost when removing mesa-libGLU

    Eg yum install DVDRipOMatic Miro compiz...........qt-devel....etc

    I also don't know how I got it. I installed F12 with a XFCE4 spin.

    These are my repositories:

    I guess I'll have to uninstall the package and re install the dependencies.

    I guess I'll have to uninstall the package and re install the dependencies.

    Try


    Code:
    su
    yum downgrade mesa-libGLU.x86_64
    Then try again


    WTF did you get mesa-libGLU-7.6-0.15.fc12.x86_64 ?

    Aahh I read this post too late. I uninstalled everything, got the right mesa-libGLU and re-installed all that stuff.

    No idea where I got this package.

    The only place I can think of is autoten beside fedora repos.
    But like I said this is a XFCE spin, don't know if it has anything to do with it.

    Thanks for the help! It works now
