huck, you don't need to go through all that trouble. Go to Yast > add and remove software and in the search field type what program you are looking for. Gkrellm comes with SuSE 9.1 along with a lot of others (karamba for one).
Before going through a headach with Tux check with YaST. She'll normally already have what you're looking for.
Oh foobar, if you installed from cd, not ftp, first you need to change your installation source. My bad dude. Go to Yast > change source of installation > add > ftp
In the field that pops up, type:
in the SERVER NAME type:ftp://ftp.suse.com/
in the DIRECTORY ON SERVER type:
Then click OK > finsh. The rest you don't need. Now you can go to 'add and remove software' and there well be a lot more there for you to chose from i.e search for.
In your 'add and remove software' modual select "PACKAGE GROUPS" from the FILTER drop-down box in the left hand corner, and have fun! Yast will handle all the ugly dependencies.
Here's a list of mirror sites that you can download from in the place of the one I gave you. http://www.suse.com/us/private/download/suse_linux/
