    It's looking for a 32-bit version of ALSA.. Try renaming the folder, reboot and test it out again. Might work, although it shouldn't..

    To rename it, you need to go in terminal, under root, and just do

    Code:
    sudo m /usr/lib64/alsa-lib/libasound_module_ctl_pulse.so /usr/lib/alsa-lib/libasound_module_ctl_pulse.so
    Create a new direction, with that file in there..
    Just one last question, Why on earth do you have a /usr/lib64 directory? it does not come with the initial settings provided by SuSE.
    Good luck.

    Personally I would simply uninstall all the pulseaudio nonsense

    Well, I just installed skype i586 for opensuse in my 11.1 64. notebook acer aspire 5710. As above, I installed the libqt4 for 32 bits. Skype is running fine.

    to say "you are a GENIUS" would be an understatement.

    YES, I had that problem, (failing to install Skype on OpenSuSE 11.1 i64)
    I found and followed your instructions to the letter (substituting for current file version numbers) and BINGO!

    THANK YOU!

    I wonder why the Skype people don't just make the converted RPM file available on their site? I guess there must be a lot of us with the same predicament who want to use SKYPE.

    Well??? Thanks anyway!

    All-

    I'm a newbie to Linux, so I was not able to get the steps to work for me. I used the YaST2 Package Search to locate & install skype 2.1.0.47. It loaded a new repository and cared for the dependencies.
