Skype not working in FreeBSD 7.1
I'm new in this forum and quite new with BSD.
At the moment, I can't get skype-188.8.131.52,1 working.
I have FreeBSD 7.1-RELEASE #0: Thu Jan 1 14:37:25 UTC 2009 email@example.com:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC i386;
with KDE 3.5.10 on Intel D845PESV, P4 2.4 GHz
First I just tried to compile skype from ports assuming it would pull in the dependencies, including linux_base. It did, but it took linux_base-fc4 which uses linux kernel 2.4, and skype 2 needs 2.6.
So I removed both skype and linux_base-fc4, installed linux_base-f8 and reinstalled skype as explained here:
Nothing changed. Skype just doesn't start. truss shows these error messages:
open("/etc/libmap.conf",O_RDONLY,0666) ERR#2 'No such file or directory'
readlink("/etc/malloc.conf",0xbfbfdfe7,1024) ERR#2 'No such file or directory'
stat("/var/mail/root",0xbfbfebb8) ERR#2 'No such file or directory'
Thanx in advance...
