Currently, you have to compile OpenDBX for SuSE yourself because the version 
available with OpenSuSE is 1.0.3 and you need 1.1.x for MSSQL support. I will 
release the next stable version (1.2.0) in two weeks and maybe Darix (the 
maintainer of the OpenSuSE packages) will include the mssql backend by 
default so this issue would be gone.

Have fun :-)
