    You mean its *****ing about DLLs?

    Your best bet is to just copy the dlls over from a windows system. That's how I fixed it.

    What do you have for installed repositories? Usually, dependencies will self resolve. Make sure you have an SuSE oss repo and packman at minimum (mirrors are okay).

    You might also want to add http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Emulators:/Wine/openSUSE_11.1/ (Adjust for your OpenSuSE version) for the latest binary build.
