I believe Opensuse uses yum
to install packages. There is a kernel package for PAE. I don't know the name of it in OpenSuse, but that name should be easy to find with an online search or a yum
command. The package probaby has both "kernel" and "PAE" in its name.
Once you know the name of the package the command to install it is simple. Let me guess the name is kernel-pae. The yum command to install it would be
yum install kernel-pae
There is a similar yast command, but I don't know yast.
Unlike almost all other Linux packages, a kernel package does not take effect until the first reboot after you install it.
Edit: I did a google search and found this page which lists various versions of "kernel-pae" for various version of Opensuse and lists various "kernel-PAE" for various versions of Fedora.
Note the exact package name differs slightly between distributions.
yum or yast know which version is appropriate, so if you let them find and download "kernel-pae" you don't need to figure out which version you need. If you find and download the rpm file yourself (such as from the page I linked) and install it by other means (sorry my Opensuse knowledge has gaps here) then you do need to figure out the right version.
