I downloaded from discover but it doesnt work ie cant call to check audio,video etc

and when I try to install from downloaded rpn I get this error
[’\n Problem: conflicting requests\n - nothing provides libsecret needed by skypeforlinux-’]

is openmandriva 4.1 an unfinished project there is a lot of linux software that wont install
guvcview which I use is not available
skype wont install from rpm on the command line due to missing files
Iguess I will find more if I keep looking


We are a community driven distribution. We do not have any company that stands behind our back. We allocate only our free time and knowledge to make things run.
If you feel that something is not working, please file a bug report with details which may help us to resolve you issues.

You can post here in the forum as well, but has to be a proper report that is to provide as much informations you can gather: console outputs, screenshots, system infos, and so on.

“My program does not work” or “Skype not working on openmandriva 4.1”
is not acceptable as a support request.
Please describe details of the failure.

mmmmmmmm guess I will have to find something else to fill the vacant drive I will have bit of a shame openmandriva did look promising

well I have decided will leave openmandriva on nvme and see what transpires I am happy the way it works on nvme

Coming soon. I’m building it now for Cooker. If all goes well, then we push it to testing in Rolling and then to
Stable 4.1.

Not sure about Skype. As soon as I find some free time I will try to test this one.

ok thanks for that I might enable testing if I can to help a little bit if you would like that thanks once again

I have changed settings in repos and gone to rolling let me know if thats ok
regards Ron

Rolling is ok. In this edition you will receive quick updates with fresh packages (just like in any other rolling distro).

guvcview is fixed and updated (thanks to @christopher_tanner for testing) Packages is now in testing repo. On Rolling you can install it from unsupported/testing repository.

So in om-repo-picker (or in terminal) you need enable “unsupported” repository and opt for testing.
Then install guvcview in dnfdragora, discover or via terminal: sudo dnf install guvcview

I have a question, did you install skype from Right? If yes, please install it from system repository.
Enable non-free repo then: sudo dnf install get-skypeforlinux

btw. new skype version is in testing repo too.

thanks AngryPenguin they are both working perfect thanks great job both of you
regards Ron
