Any more tips?
Remove skype, then
yum install -y qt-4.5.3-9.fc12.i686 qt-x11-4.5.3-9.fc12.i686 glibc.i686 alsa-lib.i686 libXv.i686 libXScrnSaver.i686 libSM.i686 libXi.i686 libXrender.i686 libXrandr.i686 libXfixes.i686 libXcursor.i686 libXinerama.i686 freetype.i686 fontconfig.i686 libstdc++.i686
reinstall skype, and try it.
If it doesn't work at first after this, reboot and try again.
Let us know if this works for you.
I'd say don't be afraid to have non-x64 libraries installed on a x64 system, especially if it makes things work. That's why there's still the /lib/ directories.
