Well I’m using the 32bit build of libqt4 - I’m running a 32-bit CPU. Be sure to read Skype HOWTO - openSUSE
This sentence seems to be particularly important for you “If you are running on a 64-bit platform, you will also need the *-32bit RPM packages, since Skype is a 32-bit application” - hopefully this will solve your problem.
Thanks. I’ve actually been successfully running Skype for some time, and it broke when I upgraded the qt packages. I know about the 32-bit versus 64 bit, and I had originally had to pull working 32-bit qt4.3 packages off of factory because at the time there were none for available in the normal repositories.
Anyway, I’m back to running qt4.3, and Skype actually works better that it did before with the old factory packages, so I guess that’s something. It still has a few glitches, but I can wait for working qt4.4 packages.
