I haven't seen any reports of passes on SUSE.  I have zero doubt that PG
works on SUSE, since it's pretty much exactly like every other Linux,
but there's been no specific reports on the lists AFAIR.

See above.

If he insists on posting such routine stuff to pgsql-announce, he should
not be too surprised that his postings do not get approved.  That isn't
the correct forum.  We don't peruse the New York Times classified ads
for such reports, either ...
