Fedora 14 with Skype 4.0: "skype-4.0.0.7-fc16.i586 requires libstdc++.so.6(GLIBCXX_3.4.15)"

When installing Skype 4.0 on Fedora 14, I get this error:  skype-4.0.0.7-fc16.i586 requires libstdc++.so.6(GLIBCXX_3.4.15)

 

Any ideas?  I'm obviously missing 3.4.15 (see below)... but how to add it?  Or add a symbolic link pointing to 3.4.14 to see if that'll work?  Need help... I'm just familiar enough with Linux to be dangerous.  Upgrading to 16/17 isn't in the cards right now.  Too much work invested in 14 at this point. 

 

ALTERNATIVELY, is there a repository of older Skype versions I can try installing?

 

Downloaded: skype-4.0.0.7-fedora.i586.rpm

Have you guys tried to upgrade your system. You're like 2 major releases back... or download old skype.

Install the Static version. You may need to create link for libtiff.so.4:

cd /usr/lib

ln -s libtiff.so.3 libtiff.so.4

 

Enjoy!

 

IMHO Fadora versions >14 suck.
