    It's not (yet). Software.openSUSE.org gives a 0 result.

    have you yet asked Boxee why their Linux download is a .deb file, only
    (for Debian, *buntu and etc)?

    or, why they don't also post non-distro specific .rpm files?

    or best yet, why they don't offer source files? that way the openSUSE
    build service could compile from source a (focused & tested) openSUSE
    package and place same in one of the official repos??

    and, while you are waiting for an answer (good luck) you could try to
    use alien to install their .deb here...and, you would not be the first
    to attempt that, so maybe you will be successful (i have no idea if it
    is possible as i didn't take the time to needed read any of the
    ~177,000 hits from a google on this string:
    boxee openSUSE alien install

    see: http://www.google.com/search?q=boxee...+alien+install

    and, when the answers have been dug out and a successfully
    installation is in hand, it would be nice if any of the posters to
    this thread shared the how by posting it to the Unreviewed How To and
    FAQ forum, here:

    I found this tutorial:
    Compiling Boxee 0.9.11.5777 on openSUSE 11.*

    But I can't compile it
    So if we have source code, maybe someone could create a rpm file?

    let me suggest you take a tour around the openSUSE Build Service
    https://build.opensuse.org/
    http://en.opensuse.org/Build_Service

    and if you run into problems, ask in
    http://forums.opensuse.org/opensuse-build-service-obs/

    i've never used it, so i can't be more helpful...sorry..
