I'll be able to help (though I don't use SuSE myself any longer).

If you want it to get running fast, compile pyPgSQL yourself and don't 
try to use a Redhat RPM on a SuSE machine. That's really not difficult, 
just be sure you have the required packages installed and follow the 
instructions in the README file in the source distribution.

Apart from that, I believe you don't have the version of the PostgreSQL 
client libraries installed that the pyPgSQL RPM references.

Please post the output of:

ldd /usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/pyPgSQL/libpq/


ls -al /usr/lib/*

PS: I'd recommend to use a subject next time that gives people an idea 
what the message is about. Normally I'd overlook posts like this, while 
I will read all with pyPgSQL in the subject.
