According to the web site, these are the minimum requirements for a
Linux version of Skype 18.104.22.168
Skype for Linux
1 GHz processor or faster.
256 MB RAM.
100 MB free disk space on your hard drive.
Video card driver with Xv support.
Either a built-in or external microphone is required for voice calls.
An internet connection – broadband is best (GPRS is not supported for voice calls).
Qt 4.7 • D-Bus 1.0.0
PulseAudio 1.0 (optional)
BlueZ 4.0.0 (optional)
I saw a post, I think it was SlashDot, that the FreeBSD kernel was not
robust enough to handle Skype. You might want to talk to the
developers. You can always download a clean distribution of Skype
from the web site and experiment with it.
