Isn't it amazing how so many people can type "linuxpakistan.net" into their browsers but not "google.com"?

remove any unofficial repositories you added, and then try "yum search qt4" or "yum search qt-4".

Yeah darklord, The main problem is not the download of the skype, but the yum, which runs behind the proxy. if you have any tips about that, they are welcome.
