    Default Installing Skype on 11.4 (64 Bit)

    At the Skype website, they are offering a package for 12.1. I am running 11.4 (64 Bit). I still downloaded the package hoping it may work.

    I read SDB:Skype - openSUSE and installed the necessary 32 bit packages.

    Now when I try to install skype I get

    Code:
    # zypper in skype-4.0.0.7-suse.i586.rpm 
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
    Resolving package dependencies...
    
    Problem: nothing provides libstdc++.so.6(GLIBCXX_3.4.15) needed by skype-4.0.0.7-suse121.i586
     Solution 1: do not install skype-4.0.0.7-suse121.i586
     Solution 2: break skype by ignoring some of its dependencies

    Install libstdc++46-32bit-4.6.2_20111026-1.1.4.x86_64. It's in the OSS
    repository.

    i'm running Skype 2.2.0.25 (Beta) on my 11.4, it was the latest and
    greatest avilable for 11.4 when i installed my system....see if you
    can't find a copy of skype-2.2.0.25-suse.i586.rpm" floating on the net
    somewhere..

    and, once downloaded to your machine, follow the directions on that page
    you cited and open a terminal/console, navigate to the directory you
    downloaded to (maybe ~/Download) and issue this magic:
    Code:
    su -c 'zypper in skype-2.2.0.25-suse.i586.rpm'
    it works ok, but i HAVE seen the failures noted here:

    https://jira.skype.com/browse/SCL-73...s:all-tabpanel

    usually i can avoid the dead stop by moving my mouse pointer away from
    the skype window and let it fully come up without trying to click until
    a few seconds after its opening sound..

    and, if it does fail then i just delete both ~/.Skype/shared.lck and
    ~/.Skype/shared.xml and then when i click to launch Skype i have to
    agree to their license and log in.....and, it will work ok for maybe a
    day, or a month (repeat)..

    No, the 11.4 repo has libstdc++45-32bit-4.5.1. There are some other repos
    with different versions, but changing this library on a system is not
    recommended, though it might work.

    My installation says it's in the OSS repo.

    m-/ I read it as 12.1 for some reason, not 11.4.

    My mistake. To the OP, yeah, it's not supported by Skype on 11.4, so
    you'd have to ask them for a 11.4 package or update to 12.1.

    There is a static package
    here

    That one might work. However, I fail to see the install instructions.
