i was able to successfully install and use skype in 32-bit stella,
but did not find it available in the repo for skype 64bit version.

Is it possible to compile this for my 64bit stella or do I need to downgrade my linux os to 32bit?

any suggestions?

thanks

Hi,

Skype is a proprietary 32bit-only application, there aren't any 64bit versions. The 32bit app is fully installable though, just
yum install skype
.

Looks like the versions 4.1+ are no longer compatible with RHEL and they stopped providing the statically linked binary. As far as I can tell, we're stuck with 4.0.
You got Microsoft to thank. Wink
