Skype - Can it be installed on SolydK64 ?

Postby MAYBL8 » 17 Jul 2014 22:54

Been trying all kinds of ways.
Can't get through dependency hell.
If the answer is no that is fine.
Thanks

A quick check indicates this has to do with packages provided by deb-multimedia.org. They're in the way of Debian's own libav packages. We really need to get rid of deb-multimedia (the new ISOs will, as a matter of fact)...

I'll see what happens if I run my solydfixes script with the -m switch later today.

This is my current sourcel.list
Is it causing the problem?

Odd. The multimedia repository has already been removed from that list. Could be the packages themselves are still installed, of course. You do still have kdenext listed, which is odd as well.

Replacing the multimedia packages from deb-multimedia.org (DMO) with the ones from Debian allowed me to install Skype on the test partition of my main machine. As I wrote here (last paragraph under 'Other actions'), getting rid of DMO could mean you lose some multimedia functionality, as not all of the packages provided by DMO have a 'pure' Debian equivalent.

It's up to you, really. You could use the script or manually change things using zerozero's method, which is what that section of the script was based on.

Thanks ,
Since that is the way the distro is headed I will clean up my sources.list and try the script and then try the install again.

er, it cant just be this easy after you have poked at it, so, this isnt meant as a solution, just a confirmation that you arent wasting time...

i use Skype here on SolydK and i believe i have run it on SolydX this way as well... for me it was:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install skype


since it was the normal install here, i have NO idea how to help you.

SolydXK is such a delicious flavor of Debian!

Ok I just tried it on my Laptop and it installed.
No sound but it installed.
I will try it on my home system tonight and see what happens.
On my home system I was trying to install it from the download on the Skype site.

when i first met Debian, i spent a weekend trying to get php to compile right... i finally gave up and told apt to do it... 10 minutes later, i was done... from that moment on, i realized Debian was smarter than i am so there are RARE exceptions to my ALWAYS using apt to put stuff in.

TrueCrypt being one of the few exceptions.

that said, um, IIRC when i put Skype in on my other machine, it kept insisting on using NOT my soundcard... in the SKype settings i changed which sound it selected and all was golden... maybe that will help you too?

Just to share my experience...
Days ago I had a rough experience with the last UP.
Anyway today I've decided to install skype, but I've downloaded the last version 4.3 from the official website.
Gdebi has installed it and required dependencies flawlessly.
Proud user of SolydK!

This is a pretty clean SolydX-64 install (201405) with the most recent UP applied. It went just like it was meant to happen. In the various listings below, I cut a bunch of stuff out that was not needful, just to keep the post size to reasonable length.

So, you're tracking SolydXK Testing .... I'm tracking production. That might be the significant difference.

Yea I thought about that but didn't know what to do about it except just take it that it won't work in testing for now.
I'll check my pure debian testing VB to see if it installs there.

Edit:
Looks like skype is not availble in debian jessie.

I got to thinking about this at the moment.
Isn't SolydK64 testing the same as production right now?

It appears to be in SolydXK's import repo:

Debian doesn't have it because it's closed source: https://wiki.debian.org/skype

It's amazing what one can discover when one RTFM .. or in this case reads the entire error message. Nice one! I should have caught that. Now I know, better, what to look for.

Look at the error message in the first code block in Dan's posting:

Code: Select all

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 skype:i386 : Depends: libasound2-plugins:i386 but it is not going to be installed
That's a DMO incompatibility. Although the sources.list suggests otherwise, this install must still have DMO packages. When I try to install that package on my main partition which still has all the DMO stuff, this is what I get:

Code: Select all

Brings back memories of the last security update of libav (there's a new one waiting, by the way...).

As I mentioned in an earlier posting in this thread, try 'un-DMO-ing' this install.

Scott, didn't you remove DMO from that SolydX-64 install or was that someone else? I'm puzzled why skype would install the way it did for you if you didn't.

I've been playing around with some sound issues uninstalling and installing some things.
I hope that hasn't altered anything.

Thanks everyone for the help:
Here is what Z asked for:

I didn't remove anything. It was (it's been over-written to test the new iso) a plain, unmodified SolydX-64 install with the July UP installed.

I've got a 201407 install (testing the new iso) and it installs there as well....
