    Default SKYPE and opensuse 13.1

    A very happy new year to all of you readers !

    I updated my suse 12.3 to 13.1 with success. Only that skype does not work any longer. read about the latency problem so I tried to start skype with "pulse_latency_msec= 60 skype "and got the following msg : " Fatal : Cannot mix incompatible Qt library (version 0x40804) with this library (version 0x40805) Abandon"
    Does anybody know what to do next ?

    Thanks
    Mahanand

    How exactly did you do the upgrade?

    Ok.

    Well, as the DVD does not contain everything, you need to do:

    Code:
    zypper dup
    zypper up
    zypper patch
    With only the default repos active. Then you need to check:

    Code:
    rpm -q -a --queryformat "%{INSTALLTIME}\t%{INSTALLTIME:day} \
    %{BUILDTIME:day} %-30{NAME}\t%15{VERSION}-%-7{RELEASE}\t%{arch} \
    %25{VENDOR}%25{PACKAGER} == %{DISTRIBUTION} %{DISTTAG}\n" \
    | sort | cut --fields="2-" | tee rpmlist | less -S
    
    or
    
    
    rpm -q -a --queryformat "%{INSTALLTIME}\t%{INSTALLTIME:day} \
    %{BUILDTIME:day} %-30{NAME}\t%15{VERSION}-%-7{RELEASE}\t%{arch} \
    %25{VENDOR}%25{PACKAGER} == %{DISTRIBUTION} %{DISTTAG}\n" \
    | sort | cut --fields="2-" | tee rpmlist \
    | egrep -v "openSUSE.12\.3" | less -S
    
    (not containing 12.3)
    Finally, you need to verify the changed config files, those listed when running this:

    Code:
    rcrpmconfigcheck

    I did a distribution upgrade from 12.3 to 13.1 and followed the instructions for 13.1 on SDB:Skype - openSUSE

    Skype starts with some ALSA output messages, but it will not connect to Internet/Skype.

    Code:
    ERROR: ld.so: object '/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.
    QIconvCodec::convertFromUnicode: using Latin-1 for conversion, iconv_open failed
    QIconvCodec::convertToUnicode: using Latin-1 for conversion, iconv_open failed
    ALSA lib conf.c:3771:(snd_config_update_r) cannot access file /etc/alsa-pulse.conf
    ALSA lib conf.c:3771:(snd_config_update_r) cannot access file /etc/alsa-pulse.conf
    ALSA lib control.c:953:(snd_ctl_open_noupdate) Invalid CTL default
    ALSA lib pcm.c:2239:(snd_pcm_open_noupdate) Unknown PCM default
    ALSA lib pcm.c:2239:(snd_pcm_open_noupdate) Unknown PCM default
    ALSA lib control.c:953:(snd_ctl_open_noupdate) Invalid CTL default
    Running skype without the extra arguments PULSE_LATENCY_MSEC=60 LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so
    works the same, It starts but does not connect (it keeps trying).

    Apparently you didn't follow them exactly, because according to your error messages you seam to miss the packages libv4l-32bit and alsa-plugins-pulse-32bit.

    Does it work if you install those (when you run it _with_ those extra arguments)?

    I tried following the link too, but find that libQtWebKit.so 32bit should also be on the needs-to-be-loaded list of libraries.

    I see it now, but under the Preparation paragraph, which I interpreted to be for 12.3, not 13.1.

    You're right. That paragraph is for 12.3, there is none for 13.1 AFAICS.
    And it is _not_ listed for older versions, although I would think it's needed there as well... (but maybe it was installed there by default?)

    I can assure you I had already installed both those libraries in 32bit. There is also libQtWebKit.so 32bit installed.

    My Skype starts and is running, but it does not connect.

    Well, apparently you _did not_ have at least libv4l-32bit installed when you got that output you posted, since that's the package that contains /usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so.

    But I made a mistake, sorry:
    /etc/alsa-pulse.conf is in the package "alsa-plugins-pulse" (i.e. the 64bit package), because that file is noarch anyway (it's a text file).
    So make sure you have that installed as well.

    I'm not sure if missing that packages could prevent skype from connecting though.

    Don't you get any additional output?

    Do you have _all_ those 32bit packages installed that are listed for 12.3, i.e.: libqt4-32bit libqt4-x11-32bit libpng12-0-32bit libQtWebKit4-32bit xorg-x11-libs libXss1-32bit libpng12-0 ? (although, if not I guess it wouldn't even start)

    Maybe an AppArmor problem?
    Try turning it off with:
    Code:
    sudo /sbin/rcapparmor stop
    Are you behind a proxy or firewall?
