  1. MDV x64 updates help

    I automagically install updates by > urpmi --wget --auto-select --auto


    but I keep getting

    > Some requested packages cannot be installed:
    > f-spot-0.4.0-6.1mdv2008.0.x86_64 (due to unsatisfied sqlite-tools)
    > libsmbclient0-3.0.25b-4.4mdv2008.0.i586 (due to unsatisfied libcap.so.1)


    How can I get these unsatisfied packages?
    is the problem that they are 32 bit packages? Because I have a 32 bit
    installation where none of these things have happened!!
    It is interesting also that on the 32 bit installation Skype works
    flawlessly, but on the 64 bit installation I cannot get it too work!!
    Can any of you marvelous and brilliant at Linux help me please, esp if
    you have fixed these problems on your MDV 64 bit installation!!!!

    urpmi sqlite-tools
    should install the first.

    You likely already have libcap.so.1 as the 64-bit version
    /lib64/libcap.so.1.

    Go into MCC to Software management and search for libsmbclient.
    See if you have a 64-bit version installed. If so, I would simply
    put libsmbclient0 in /etc/urpmi/skip.list and leave it on the
    system. There is a shell script that may be symbolically linked
    to the lib file name, that is supposed to sort out which version
    is needed and call it, and removing the i586 (32-bit) package might
    remove that.

    A package ending in x86_64 is 64-bit. One ending in i386, i586, or
    i686 is 32-bit.

    The usual Skype package is 32-bit. Goggle alt.os.linux.mandriva
    (the preferred forum for the past few years) for Skype and
    see what others have done with respect to this problem. If Skype
    has a 64-bit package, that might work. If the 32-bit libraries
    needed are available on your system, it might be possible to run
    32-bit Skype as is, with a bit of tinkering in configuration files.
    Or maybe not. The ndiswrapper might also be usable, but I do not
    use it and cannot help.

    Cheers!
