    1.Go to Yast> Software Management> in the Search type flash delete the one you installed.
    2.Go to Yast> Software Management> in the Search type flash look in the pane in the lower right click the version tab.
    3.look to see if you have the 10.0.32.18.3.1.1-i586 from opensuse or the non-oss Suse repo checked
    4.Check for installation in the upper right pane that should set you up.

    The issue I encountered when using the .rpm in openSUSE is that the plugin doesnt go where it needs to if you use the .rpm installer on the adobe website.
    Try to open a filebrowser in super user mode, and move the plugin from the flash folder created in /usr/lib/flash (this is where I see it go anyway) (the plugin is listed as libflashplugin.so)
    and move or copy it to /usr/lib/browser-plugins
    But again you need to be in admin mode for it, its an error with the flashplugin installer.
