The problem isn't with Suse directly. It's with QT.
QT on Suse is not compiled with database support
Simply download QT 3.3.4, configure, compile, install.
Then link /usr/lib/qt3 to /usr/local/qt (from the QT install)
and you're good to go.
This is what it took to get MythTV running on Java Desktop
3.0 (which is based on Suse 9.1)
