    Okay, I downloaded libqt4-32bit and started it with YaST. Now it tells me that 'this is not a rpm package...'

    You should be installing those packages from the repositories (and your install DVD, if you used one, is also a repository) using YaST's software management screen, rather than downloading and running rpm on each one separately. This also takes care of the dependencies for you.

    In general, OpenSUSE repositories should be your primary sources of packages. skype was the exception because it's not from an OpenSUSE repository.

    I don't have libqt4-dbus-1 of either 64 or 32 bit on my 11.0 system and Skype still works fine.

    Skype uses the QT4.4 libraries (libqt4 package), however the standard KDE4 QT4.4 libraries have a bug in them, it's fixed in the latest libraries that can be found in this repository:
    Index of /repositories/KDE:/Qt44/openSUSE_11.0

    I installed the version 11.1 and the same problem occurred using different user of root.

    Using root the sound is perfectly.
