--As for the rest, it is mine.

Your problem is that you are mixing two install methods.  Installing from 
source, (which is how you installed Postgres) gets you the current version 
and works fine, but doesn't integrate with your distro in any way, and it 
is up to you to make sure it works.  Installing using the distro's install 
manager (which you tried for pgadmin3) integrates with your distro, and if 
there *are* any problems with installing from source they should have been 
solved for you.

But using the install manager means it will try to make sure your install 
is 'right', and it doesn't know about anything that didn't use it.

Basically, Yast doesn't know you've installed Postgres, and doesn't want 
you to install pgadmin3 without it, because that would probably be a 
mistake on your part.  Either you should uninstall the copy of Postgres 
you've installed and install a package of it for your distro through Yast, 
or you should install a copy of of pgadmin3 from source.
