Fedora X86/64bit :: Skype Static Version On 64bit FC10
Mar 16, 2009
Downloaded from here: [URL] then ,it is 32-bit and I need to know what all 32-bit libs are needed as dependency for skype to work. I am on Gnome Fedora and purposefully selected static version of skype to prevent installation of libqt4.
I assumed this had to be a FAQ, but after hours of searching, how to do this on FC11, but that didn't work with the yum on FC10. I don't need a huge list, but at least the basics (ld-linux.so, and I imagine the C++ compatibility libs).
I just tried to update to kernel 184.108.40.206-170.2.24.fc10 (x86_64) at the suggestion of the gnome update widget, and the process hung. A bunch of other things were updating at the same time, many of which were related to audacity or wine.
I'm not sure just what was being updated, because the option to review which updates are available does not work - when I click on it, nothing happens, but when I take the other choice (install all updates), I take pot luck. It would be nice to be able to choose which programs to update, and to be able to upgrade the kernel independently, but I don't seem to be able to do that at the moment.
I have programs that work in FC10 and FC12, but when I run them on FC11, i get behaviour that is very similar to a deadlock. They don't crash or anything. It just seems that all program output stops at one point and never resumes. I am wondering if FC11 has any known threading issues that one may need to know about before trying to use it to run their software from FC10 or FC12. Maybe something in the way that threading is handled differently from FC10 or FC12 that is not necessarily a problem, but just needs to be kept in mind when writing code for FC11.
Download Skype-Static from : [URL] Extract the Folder to /opt directory. use the menu System>Preferences>Look and Feel>Main Menu Editor and add skype item to your Internet menu : command to add is :
My System:I use the mic of headphone connected to talk ,while uses the System Speakers for incoming audio. This is FWIW ,works for me: First:
yum -y install alsa-plugins-pulseaudio padevchooser.x86_64 paman.x86_64 paprefs.x86_64 pavucontrol.x86_64 pavumeter.x86_64 pulseaudio-utils.x86_64 Configure your pulseaudio volume control using Pulseaudio Device Chooser(menu Applications>Sound and Video) to have comfortable level of volume in your headphone/mic . Also ,go to Gnome Volume Control and enable channel sources for mic volume input etc accordingly.
My Policy is to install the minimum no. of 32-bit dependencies.still skype v2 32-bit asks for. :
yum -y install glibc.i386 alsa-lib.i386 libXv.i386 libXScrnSaver.i386 libSM.i386 libXi.i386 libXrender.i386 libXrandr.i386 libXfixes.i386 libXcursor.i386 libXinerama.i386 freetype.i386 fontconfig.i386 libstdc++.i386 Below options in Skype Sound Preferences Options while Set Works for me on my Intel ICH7 HDA onboard audio:
Finally got skype working on my Fedora 11 x64 version. Well, of course, the first thing is to download the 32 bit "skype-220.127.116.11-fc5.i586.rpm" from Skype official website..At first, I found a guide on [URL].. and followed the instruction.Installed skype using
There are also some thread talking about this problem but I forgot to bookmark them. It seems that skype needs 32 bit lisa.. So I then installed the lisa-lib-1.0.20-1.fc(i586). Meanwhile, I configured sound in, out and ring to hw... Also disabled "Allow skype to adjust .. mixer level" . When I run skype from xtern, it still reports erors related to lisa.. But it works now...
I'm trying to get skype to work on my new system. It seems to install, but trying to run it I get an error message naming a missing dependency. Searching for this with yum whatprovides and installing the result worked in one case, but for the next one, yum install <package containing missing item> returns a few errors of the form:
package <name-version>.fc12.x86_64 (which is newer than <package-version>.fc12.i686) is already installed Is there any way around this? I'd like to get skype working, but am having no luck at the moment. I'd prefer not to remove the .x86_64 packages if I can avoid it in case that breaks something else.
I just bought sony vaio laptop(EB16) couple of days before.I had window 7 OS. Two days before i downloaded Fedora-12-x86_64-DVD & installed in my PC.Everything is working fine except when i play any video or audio file such as .avi, .mp3 from any player such as vlc player, movie player ,xine etc , i don't get any sound.I tried to search this problem in internet but still i am not able to resolve this problem.
Can anyone get the website below to work correctly with Firefox 3.5 and F11 64bit?[URL]...All I see is the background scrolling slowly and jerkily, none of the buttons at the bottom work. Reboot into Windows 7 and IE8: the same site is fast, smooth, the buttons work and the product details appear correctly in the centre of the screen.
I have Fedora 11 installed on two different machines, one 32 bit and the other 64 bit. If I play an mp3 file in the 64 bit system---it doesn't seem to matter which player I use---then I can only start, stop, or go to the beginning or end of the selection. I can't advance the stream to some intermediate point. The slider display showing the position is greyed out. The same programs on the same file in the 32 bit system work normally and allow me to advance the position by using the mouse with the slider. This may have something to do with how gnome is configured on the two machines, but I can't figure out what is different.
Im trying to install iseriesaccess for linux. I've had to use the i386 version and the 64bit says it has not 5250 emulator which is the reason im installing it. I have had a good look and cant get it to solve these dependencies. Has anyone else tried and got this working?
[ltodd2@zeus Downloads]$ rpm -ivh iSeriesAccess-5.4.0-1.6.i386.rpm error: Failed dependencies: libodbcinst.so.1 is needed by iSeriesAccess-5.4.0-1.6.i386 libodbc.so.1 is needed by iSeriesAccess-5.4.0-1.6.i386 libstdc++.so.5 is needed by iSeriesAccess-5.4.0-1.6.i386
Edit: now working, thanks very much Leigh and Dangermouse.
Anyone successfully installed AIR and iPlayer on F11?
I've switched to 32 bit Adobe flash, tried Autoten for AIR and Dangermouse's advice for iPlayer: url.html but it's not working, and trying to install AIR from url results in an endless busy downloading graphic .
I assume my problem is a lack of required packages, though I searched the repositories using YUM extender for the packages listed here: url.html and can't see them either as installed or available.
i have a asus K8N-DL MB with 2xAMD64 opteron270 and 4G ram3x1TB drives in raid 5 using onboard SIL controllerand 2 SATA drives also on SIL but not raidedhad previously had F10 64 bit loaded whick workedtried to upgrade and failed (destroyed data)tried a fresh install low level formatted the 3x1TB and made them into raidleft other drives as is takes a long time to boot into the point of trying to find HDthen nothing found
Iam trying to install F15 64bit but I failed my hardware as folow

I have been using for over a year now, my 64-bit computer first with Fedora 8 and now with Fedora 10 with 2Gb of RAM just fine. Today I purchased an extra 2Gb for the system and upon installation from the GRUB screen Fedora 10 simply won't boot. It does boot with 3Gb, and it doesn't matter which stick I use for the 3Gb configuration, or what slot do I put the sticks into the motherboard, however if I place the four sticks, F10 simply won't boot. Should I pass a command line argument tot he kernel? If so, which?
Today I got update notification. I type in terminal yum update, and get this error: Quote: Error: Missing Dependency: libnetfilter_conntrack.so.1()(64bit) is needed by package iptstate-2.2.1-5.fc11.x86_64 (installed) You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem You could try running: package-cleanup --problems package-cleanup --dupes rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
I removed iptstate.x86_64, again run yum update, and than, ibnetfilter_conntrack got installed. I tried to install iptstate.x86_64 again, but i get Quote:
