How did you start PostgreSQL?   If you started it without the " -i"
option, you will not be able to connect any way other than the command
line on the local machine.  This sounds like your problem.

Be warned that SuSE's postgresql startup scripts are unreliable.  I
keep meaning to pester the folks in Germany about this, but am rather
busy ...

Start PostgreSQL with:

postgres(at)localhost > pg_ctl -o "-i" -l /log/file/name -D
/pgsql/data/directory start
