I would like to install Skype in Fedora 14 64 bits. However, I encounter this error during the install:

$ yum install skype-
skype- requires libXss.so.1
skype- requires libQtXml.so.4
skype- requires libQtNetwork.so.4
skype- requires libQtDBus.so.4
skype- requires libQtWebKit.so.4
skype- requires libQtGui.so.4
skype- requires libstdc++.so.6(GLIBCXX_3.4.15)
skype- requires libQtCore.so.4
skype- requires libXv.so.1
skype- requires qtwebkit

If I try the Dynamic version, I encounter this error:

$ ~/bin/skype- 
error while loading shared libraries: libXv.so.1: 
cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Is it possible to install these dependencies? If so, how?

Is that the 32-bit version of skype? There is a 64-bit version, at least for Debian. – ott-- Feb 24 '13 at 20:36
I cannot find a 64-bit version for Fedora. – Wok Feb 24 '13 at 22:41
It looks as if you must build one yourself, or just take the debian version. – ott-- Feb 25 '13 at 10:27

For the latter case try yum install libXv

How about yum install libXv.i686 ? – bgvaughan Feb 25 '13 at 8:03
