errr. and 1.5 Ghz PC G4
I am sorry sdogv but you can't use the new versions of Skype. They dropped PC G4 support (it is also known as "pcc" instead of "x86" and "x86_64" which is the current supported architectures). There are 10.5 machines that are "x86" and others that are "pcc".
If you run this from the app "Terminal" (installed by default):
/Applications/Skype.app/Contents/MacOS/Skype: Mach-O executable i386
When I run file against Skype I can see that it says that it is a "i386" application which is pretty much the same as saying that it only runs in "x86" which you can't run.
There is an older version of Skype that you can use:
Versions 2.7 to 2.8. NOTE: "ppc" is the same as PowerPC. You will notice that there is also the "Intel" category which is "i386/x86".
This means that eventually you will have to buy a new Mac. Sorry about that!
I hope it helps.
See previous post. New versions of Skype do not work on Mac pc...I went to site suggested and downloaded a 2008 version which works just fine.. BTW, Mac 386 may be OK, but a Mac pc 10.5 NG..
Download an old version of Skype, e,g, 18.104.22.1686.dmg ..
This one worked fine for me, using Mac OS 10.5.8.. New versions of Skype for Mac
do NOT register.. (don't know why)
i just wanted to say thank you because that DID fix this problem for me. Like magic, my face finally showed up on the testing screen after i deleted the most recent version of skype and went with that older one you posted the link to.
