    Why is skype so unstable on my iMac running leopard.

    It keeps on cutting out and or quiting.

    Do I need to do or change something.

    Thanks

    I'm running Skype on Leopard and have been since installing Leopard. No problems.

    Did you do a clean install of leopard or upgrade?

    Are you running the latest version of Skype?

    Seemingly Skype V2.7.0.195 beta is the latest version and is recommended for use with leopard.

    I'm using 2.6.0.151 without any problems.

    Make sure you have the latest version of Skype. Many apps need to be modified to be fully operational/stable under Leopard, and developers are releasing new versions that do just that.

    Also having the latest version of OS X doesn't hurt.

    I'm running the latest version of Skype (not the Beta version) in Leopard and it works fine. I'm not sure what the problem might be for you?
