Not sure about SuSE, but I used it on Linux / Ubuntu for the odd thing which still needs it (basically "the sky a night"). I have 10.0.7.785 installed. One quirk I remember is that it wants libstdc++ version 5 installed.
I run it using a wrapper script which uses it with aoss, so that it uses the ALSA drivers instead of the OSS drivers, which tend to refuse to share the sound card between applications.
I find that I can sometimes play real media streams using mplayer and/or vlc, but that they cannot seek like realplayer can, and sometimes they just don't work.
