I have HP 2133 with Suse SLED 10. I installed Skype version 184.108.40.206 because new version of Skype would not work without certain libraries. The old version has worked allright until now. But now it has stopped connecting me. I always get a message “wrong skype name or password”, even though they definitely not are wrong (I can connect to skype from other machines with this username and password). When I asked from Skype helpdesk what to do, the only solution they would offer was to update to newest version of Skype.
Now, the newest version needs
PulseAudio 0.9.10+ (optional)
It looks like SLED 10 has older versions of Qt and D-Bus, and no libasound or PulseAudio at all.
My problem is that I am not very good in using Yast. Years ago I had Suse, and I remember that when I needed to install something, I used Yast and it told me, which disc I had the program I was looking for on. But now I have no discs at all, and I don’t actually understand how I install the said libraries.
(as I recall, when installing skype, I did not use Yast at all).
So please someone , give advice on how to use Yast when trying to install something. Do I download something first and then use Yast to install? Or can i use Yast to both download and install? And the most convenient places to download those libraries from?
Or maybe some advice opn how I could make my old version of Skype work, not updating at all?
