If you don't set a root password at install time, root's disabled like
on Ubuntu.

Sorry, Andrei. I misunderstood what you meant. I hadn't tried the
repo. I have now and got error reports about it. I even tried to view
the directory in a browser, and wasn't allowed. Although that may not
mean much.

I'm guessing the problem is that my arch is amd64, while the repo might
be i386 only.

It can be downloaded from here:

http://www.skype.com/intl/en/get-skype/on-your-computer/linux/post-download/

Not a "repo" but a "deb" file and tagged for "lenny".

Isn't the lenny version 32bit only? IIRC you have to install the Ubuntu
64bit versions and a couple of ia32-* packages. (ia32-libs,
ia32-libs-gtk) to get skype working on amd64.

Ask Skype why they have removed the repos ;-)

Dunno :-?

Is the Ubuntu 64-bits deb file a native 64-bits compilation?

It is not, but it is at least installable on an amd64 system. You still
need some 32bit libraries. This *might* have changed though and I would
try the lenny package first.

It's just that I sucessfully installed skype from the Ubuntu package on
amd64 systems in the past, so that definitely works.
