Skype is only available on 32 bits version:
amd64 system can run both 32 bits and 64 bits binaries,
so amd64 can run Skype provided that some basic 32 bits
libraries are also installed.

You may use something as dselect to install Skype
and its dependencies.

hth,
Jerome

Because it is a package for the amd64 architecture of debian. You could
try installing the i386-package and see for yourself that it is less
simple, and it would probably involve forcing dpkg to pretend that it is
working on an i386 architecture, and you would have to make sure that
you have the corresponding 32-bit libraries.


As Mathieu wrote, the fact that the actual binary is 32-bit is not a
problem, as a 64-bit linux can run those. The problem with 32-bit
packages is the availability of the supporting libraries, as the binary
tries to load 32-bit versions of the libraries it needs. As the skype
package is packaged for the amd64-architecture, its dependencies can be
resolved by apt running on a 64-bit system.


(I believe the solutions to such issues will come when the "multiarch"
release-goal is fully implemented in debian.)


Hope it helps.

That "amd64" can be misleading.

If you download the .deb and look at the INFO file, you'll see:

***
(...)
Architecture: amd64
Depends: lib32stdc++6 (>= 4.1.1-21), lib32asound2 (>> 1.0.14), ia32-libs,
libc6-i386 (>= 2.7-1), lib32gcc1 (>= 1:4.1.1-21+ia32.libs.1.19), ia32-
libs-gtk
***

It's not a pure 64-bits package, it depends on a bunch of 32-bits compat
libraries.

Greetings,
