Did you install a 32-bit version of Skype on a 64-bit system? (there's
no 64-bit Skype, yet or ever)

If so, you'll have to install all the 32-bit stuff that Skype needs to
get sound (pulseaudio and more). I remember I had to do this first when
I installed an old Skype 2.x (then updating to 4.x was still OK). I've
found the information online, it was related to Fedora maybe, can't
remember exactly.
