a -devel rpm is source code headers and other parts of the original package that are equired in order to compile otehr code which uses the given program. normally an RPM only contains the compiled code that is executed, whether it's a library or a program. that's fine to just use it, but to compile other thigns and mess about with it, the -devel stuff comes in.
On Suse, you need to install the kdelibs3-devel package. Its available on the Suse discs, so you can install it using YAST. I don't think you need kdelibs devel on Slack since it does not normally split binary and devel packages.
