I use pgdb as well, for the same reason.

Debian lists a package called python-egenix-mxdatetime as a dependency
for python-pygresql, and that in turn depends on
python-egenix-mxtools.  I believe you need to install these modules
for pygresql to work, as mxDateTime is not the same as datetime.  The
site for mxDateTime is
http://www.egenix.com/files/python/mxDateTime.html if you need to
install it manually, but there should be a SUSE package for it.
*Quick look through SUSE site.*  Yep, here it is:

I hope that gets it working.
