and this is what happened after I pressed enter:

grep: /var/log/setup/tmp/files.skype-1.4.0.118-noarch-1: No such file or directory

I'm going to try installing the static package from skype.com and see how that works...

I just tried it here on 5.9, and i got no errors installing, but I dont get a menu launcher for it, and running skype from a terminal gets this error
Code: [Select]
uel:$ skype
bash: /usr/bin/skype: Permission denied
then after changing permissions on the file I get this
Code: [Select]
uel:$ skype
skype: error while loading shared libraries: libQtDBus.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Try now

Perhaps you need to run ldconfig, uelsk8s? QtDBus is included in qt4, a dependency.

thats what i get for downloading from the link in the first post.
Why do we post the links, when we should be promoting the use of slapt-get/gslapt anyway?

Thanks hanumizzle

I gave it the Magic Hanumizzle Touch®. No, actually the only thing I did was set usr/bin/skype in the install skeleton to executable permissions.

I have continuing problems with the repo, and so I leave sendspace links for exeterdad or easuter.

I'm really sorry folks, Hanu updated his package in a timely matter.  I moved it into the repo yesterday, but failed to remove the old one and update the links in this thread.  Should be all set now.  Sorry for the chaos it has caused.

I wonder as well.  Installing the package from the link is asking for troubles as the dependencies aren't resolved.

Ok, exeterdad, I'll send the links to you (cc: easuter) via PM in the future.

That's great Hanu, but "your" links weren't the ones I'm talking about.  I'm talking about the links the "repo-guys" post when announcing a new package.

Your links for package contributions in the packagers board are great IMO as more people that have repo access can assist with moving them to their place. And it's less steps for you when submitting since you'll be making a post anyway over there.

Well, it was part of the "standard" set in the repo maintainer's guide that JohnB316 wrote. Its was probably relevant to post links in "Ye Olde Days" when package management wasn't so great....
Probably something we could drop (at least for the binary packages). The source links are still useful though; I for one love dissecting exeterdad's scripts for some of the nastier packages :D

I do the same to you guys.  Where do you think much of the code in my templates comes from?  :)

Unless anyone objects.  I'll stop including direct links to the packages in the future.  If someone needs to obtain the package, there are plenty of other ways to do so.

VL 5.8 SOHO:

Depends alsa-lib >= 1.0.15   Most recent showing in gslapt is 1.0.14a  I installed anyway.
Had to change permissions on /usr/bin/skype to make it executable.
Now missing libQtDBus.so.4.
Installed Qt4. Next error:
Code: [Select]
$ skype
skype: /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6: version `CXXABI_1.3.1' not found (required by skype)
skype: /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.4' not found (required by skype)

Edit: Downloaded and installed cxxlibs-6.0.8-i486-4 from slackware.it Works now.

I made the package for VL 5.9. Anyway, the newest one should not have the executable problem.
