Suse 11.3 Gnome 64 bit: which version of Skype?

During the last years I installed several 32 Bit - linux on my VAIO 64 bit laptop. Today I installed openSUSE 11.3 Gnome 64 bit from DVD; everything seams to be okay, my web cam works with cheese. Searching in the internet I found 2 opinions:
1, install 32 bit - Skype,
2, install 64 bit - Skype.
What would be the best way?

After installing Skype
Reading installed packages...

S | Name  | Type    | Version          | Arch | Repository       
i | skype | package | | i586 | (System Packages)
my web cam does not work ( 7 times booting openSuse, 2 times success).
Is there a possibility to find the mistake(s)?
part of /var/log/messages:
Sep 27 19:17:05 linux-mn07 kernel: [   73.504600] process `skype' is using obsolete setsockopt SO_BSDCOMPAT
Edit: The last 3 times the bulit-in webcam Ricoh does not work
