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

$ yum install skype-4.1.0.20-fedora.i586.rpm
[...]
skype-4.1.0.20-fc16.i586 requires libXss.so.1
skype-4.1.0.20-fc16.i586 requires libQtXml.so.4
skype-4.1.0.20-fc16.i586 requires libQtNetwork.so.4
skype-4.1.0.20-fc16.i586 requires libQtDBus.so.4
skype-4.1.0.20-fc16.i586 requires libQtWebKit.so.4
skype-4.1.0.20-fc16.i586 requires libQtGui.so.4
skype-4.1.0.20-fc16.i586 requires libstdc++.so.6(GLIBCXX_3.4.15)
skype-4.1.0.20-fc16.i586 requires libQtCore.so.4
skype-4.1.0.20-fc16.i586 requires libXv.so.1
skype-4.1.0.20-fc16.i586 requires qtwebkit
[...]

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

$ ~/bin/skype-4.1.0.20/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
