I am not sure on this, but I think that Suse 9.1 has SELinux enabled in the kernal. You may have to login as root an give your user acct. more permissions.

Here is the link to Selinux for more info:

Here is the reference to Suse 9x

Also try posting this question in the Suse forum.

Or have one the moderators move it.
