skype ot Slackware64
 
Hi. I've installed Slackware64 and I'm now trying to install skype. Unfortunatly, skype has only 32 bit version. I downloaded the slackbuild script and the installation goes fine. However, when I type /usr/bin/skype it says
Code:

"bash: /usr/bin/skype: No such file or directory
even though there's an executable there. So I suppose the problem is that i'm using 64 bit slackware and the program is 32 bit...

Any ideas how to proccede to install the 32-bit skype ?

Thanks in advance.

You'll need to make your Slackware multilib by installing some 32 bit libraries. Fortunately, Alien Bob has published a truly excellent way to do this. Skype should work after this.
