Everyone, occasionally my link will 404. I have another link to the above RPM. It is below in case it does not work.

Re: CentOS/RHEL 6 Skype 4.2 RPM - Installation Steps

After new updating (from yum update) in CentOs 6.2, it was changed to CentOs 6.4 (Final) and an error message appeared:

 

 

skype: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libXrandr.so.2: undefined symbol: _XGetRequest

 

Any idea how to solve it?

 

Rgds.

Re: CentOS/RHEL 6 Skype 4.2 RPM - Installation Steps

the problem isn't nux repo the problem you create is that if someone want to install vlc he must (i think) to use nux repo and if you try to install skype 4.2 it will pop you conflict message even if you disable nux repo.

 

i mean that you CAN'T install vlc and skype 4.2 side by side .

Re: CentOS/RHEL 6 Skype 4.2 RPM - Installation Steps

In my case, I wrote a bash script, setting the LD_LIBRARY_PATH and LD_PRELOAD_PATH for the place I have installed the x86 libs and it worked (before that I was getting the SegFault message)


#!/bin/bash
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib LD_PRELOAD_PATH=/usr/local/lib /opt/skype/skype

In yum, it is perfectly possible to restrict SPECIFIC packages from a repo and keep it on at the same time. VLC and Skype installed on a CentOS system side-by-side is perfectly fine (which is what I do, but I don't go through nux), unless of course "nux" is deciding to replace base packages. And that's a no-no :happy:

Right, so you should have been constantly updating, instead of staying at 6.2 for so long. That's the first problem. The second problem is you may need to update another package. 

 

Please provide the output of the following commands please:
uname -a
rpm -q libXrandr

This shouldn't be required at all. If you are running a 64 bit system, the RPM should install all the necessary packages required that are 32 bit that work with Skype. The need for the LD_* variables before running skype is really unnecessary. A reboot usually suffices. 

Remove Skype using yum (if installed that way) and install it again using yum install.

Re: CentOS/RHEL 6 Skype 4.2 RPM - Installation Steps

i remove it and install it again but still the same i think the problem its with qt libs that ships with centos 6.4 .

 

tell me skype 4.2 dependent on the same qt version that centos have? because from googling i see that skype 4.2 need higher qt version .

 

so i don't understand how the skype 4.2 installtion succeed without any errors.
