    What you had downloaded ? tar.gz ??
    I recommend you to install via package manager.
    open Yast-> software -> software management

    search filter-> wine
    what is the wine version installed ? check available version ( which is shown in the parenthesis )
    ex. wine 1.0.1 ( 1.1.3 )
    If not shown latest (1.1.3) or not installed latest version ... then follow this
    * press ctrl+M (=repository manager )
    * add new repository
    * select community repository
    * check mark on WINE
    it will refresh the package manager.
    After pressing OK, it redirects to the "install software".
    again search filter type "wine". select the wine among the search results
    right click on it, select "update".

    now you installing latest WINE

    maybe you want to use playonlinux
    it is a graphical frontend based on wine with special preconfigured settings
    for a variety of windows games
    you can install it via webpin (if you use 11.2) or if you have opensuse
    11.0. or 11.1 it is in the packman repository
    http://www.playonlinux.com/
    for more info about it
