Suse's Ivtv And Lirc Don't Work, cat: /dev/video: No such device

SuSEBurken:~ # cat /dev/video0 > /home/lagu2653/HemmaBio/TV/test.mpg
cat: /dev/video0: No such device
I can't open them eventhough I'm root and the permissions are set to 777. Ls clearly shows that they exist. I used # cat /dev/video0 > /home/lagu2653/HemmaBio/TV/test.mpg and # lircd --nodaemon and # irw
SuSEBurken:~ # /usr/sbin/lircd --nodaemon
lircd 0.7.0: lircd(any) ready
lircd 0.7.0: accepted new client on /var/run/lirc/lircd
lircd 0.7.0: could not open /dev/lirc
lircd 0.7.0: default_init(): No such device or address
lircd 0.7.0: caught signal
SuSEBurken:~ #
If I install ivtv and lirc from source I can open them.
