Hi there,

I have Fedora 18 (which is very similar to CentOS). I just successfully downloaded and installed skype via rpm. What types of issues are you experiencing?

I downloaded the skype rpm from here --> I used a basic rpm installation approach like so: sudo rpm -ivh skype-

Please let me know how far you got along...
