Hi choyano, welcome to the forums.

It looks like maybe SUSE uses a different name for its OpenAL library than most other distributions. Since you already installed it successfully, then you must have the the question is where is it. To find it there are a few ways. First you could use the locate command, like this:
locate libopenal
That should return something with some kind of .so files. Wherever that file is, you can then symlink it (as root) to and vdrift should run OK. Let's say you found it in /usr/lib/, then you would symlink it like this (as root, use "su" to become root first):
ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/
Now when vdrift looks for it will find the symbolic link and follow it to the correct library file.

It's likely installed in somewhere like /lib, /usr/lib, /usr/local/lib, or something like that. Please post your findings here so we can help other Suse users...

thelusiv, a lot of thanks =)!
i executed the commands and my libopenal was at /usr/lib.
My game is running now ^_^
