Question Fedora 11 couldn't install skype

Hi,

I am new to linux, any help is greatly appriciated

Using Fedora 11

[root@writ skype]# uname -a
Linux writ 2.6.29.4-167.fc11.i586 #1 SMP Wed May 27 17:14:37 EDT 2009 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux


[root@writ skype]# pwd
/opt/src/apps/skype

[root@writ skype]# ls
skype-2.1.0.47-fc10.i586.rpm

[root@writ /]# rpm -q skype
package skype is not installed

[root@writ skype]# rpm -ivh skype-2.1.0.47-fc10.i586.rpm
Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
1:skype ########################################### [100%]

[root@writ skype]# rpm -q skype
skype-2.1.0.47-fc10.i586

then the skype application appears in menu Applications --> Internet --> Skype.

When I click skype nothing happens.......so tried to start from command line

[root@writ skype]# skype
skype: error while loading shared libraries: libssl.so.7: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

from the error message I can see there is something wrong in libssl.so.7

But, I don't understand where to look or how to provide the shared library

please point me in the right direction

Ravi

Are you sure it's libssl.so.7. Is that exactly what it says? I can't find it using yum whatprovides */libssl.so.7. Yum should tell me what package this is part of.

I downloaded the same rpm as you and installed it on a Fedora 11 box without trouble. Odd thing is, this is a box that has a new install of F11 on it with almost no customization. I haven't installed anything and have only done updates...

I am not sure is that is the confirmed problem. but I couldn't dig any further.

I don't have Yum working either.

[root@writ ravi]# rpm -qi yum
Name : yum Relocations: (not relocatable)
Version : 3.2.23 Vendor: Fedora Project
Release : 3.fc10 Build Date: Wed 20 May 2009 11:30:01 PM BST
Install Date: Sun 18 Oct 2009 05:37:11 PM BST Build Host: ppc8.fedora.phx.redhat.com
Group : System Environment/Base Source RPM: yum-3.2.23-3.fc10.src.rpm
Size : 3547653 License: GPLv2+
Signature : DSA/SHA1, Fri 05 Jun 2009 02:05:34 PM BST, Key ID bf226fcc4ebfc273
Packager : Fedora Project
URL : http://yum.baseurl.org/
Summary : RPM installer/updater
Description :
Yum is a utility that can check for and automatically download and
install updated RPM packages. Dependencies are obtained and downloaded
automatically prompting the user as necessary.



[root@writ ravi]# yum upgrade
There was a problem importing one of the Python modules
required to run yum. The error leading to this problem was:

No module named yum

Please install a package which provides this module, or
verify that the module is installed correctly.

It's possible that the above module doesn't match the
current version of Python, which is:
2.6 (r26:66714, Mar 17 2009, 11:44:21)
[GCC 4.4.0 20090313 (Red Hat 4.4.0-0.26)]

If you cannot solve this problem yourself, please go to
the yum faq at:
http://wiki.linux.duke.edu/YumFaq


Any help is greatly appriciated.

Open a terminal and type
Quote:
wget http://archive.linux.duke.edu/pub/fedora/linux/releases/11/Fedora/i386/os/Packages/yum-3.2.22-4.fc11.noarch.rpm
This will download yum.
Then type
Code:
su -
<password>
rpm -Uvh yum-3.2.22-4.fc11.noarch.rpm
This will install yum. When finished try a command like yum check-update.

Great!!!! just one step away

After executing the command you suggested, skype installed file. But it is not recognizing my microphone.

I can hear the voice, but I couldn't speak.

Once again, thank you for your kind help

Well you're welcome. If not a complete success at least you're on the right path.

Yeah. Well, this thread has been stagnant for a couple years now. Let's leave it to rest in peace.

Thread closed.
