Hi,

well as it is said in you rmessage, you need to install kernel sources... so open a terminal, and type "uname -a" to know which kernel version you are running then you have to download the sources corresponding to your kernel version and then install them.
the problem is that I don't really know Suse but I know that they have useful tools to install packages... these tools are yum/yast... but i can't tell you how to use them

download this: ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/x86_64/u....11.x86_64.rpm
and then do:
Code:
rpm -Uvh kernel-source-2.6.8-24.11.x86_64.rpm
to install kernel sources... and you should be able to run correctly your previous prog

'cause intel does not only do processor... it does all sort of chipset like audio chipset
so your chipset is an intel one
