Install Skype 3 Years, 11 Months ago  
Trying to install skype-2.1.0.81 to ClearOS5.1.

After downloaded the skype dynamic package, installed Qt4, alsa, and libXScrnSaver, etc., skype cannot run due to error :

./skype: /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.9' not found (required by ./skype)

libstdc++.so.6 is linked to libstdc++.so.6.08.

If someone installed the skype on ClearOS, plz gives me a hint.

Thanks in advance!

I could be wrong, but Skype requires a full display manager (GUI) installed to run on Linux so I don't this will work...? ClearOS only has a very minimal GUI to permit the graphical console to run, I don't think anyone has had success installing gnome or KDE

Hi, I had a similar issue on my Fedora distro sometime ago, I fixed it by by using "yum whatprovides libstdc++.so.6" and manually installed the remaining dependencies. As said above though, Skype does require a GUI so even if you get beyond this stage I'm not sure how it'll go.

See Bob's method of installing Gnome in this thread...

I run Gnome so I can run BOINC using idle time for the World Community Grid www.worldcommunitygrid.org/widget/logoClick.do?page=index
