Now I just fresh installed OpenSUSE 12.2. Then I tried to install a software, but it showed some failed dependencies error.
Lumerical FDTD Solutions install utility
Please enter the install directory [/opt/lumerical/fdtd]:

Warning:RPM command reported error. You may need to troubleshoot install
I’v tried to make a softlink as follow but no help. I also tried to make link with version 0.9.7 and 0.9.8. None of them help.
Talking about “a software” is not very helpful to those who might try to help you. You should desscribe all the steps you took, preferable by showing not only output from a coimmand, but also the command itself.
This the more because you apperently try to install software not in the “normal” openSUSE way (using YaST > Software > Software management or zypper), but in another way. That is not wrong in itself, but when you keep everything a secret to you, nobody can help you.
Thanks for the reply and sorry for incomplete information. I just didn’t know which information is useful, rather than keeping it secret.
To be clear, the software I would like to install is FDTD solutions which is a Maxwell equation solver. From the website information, its linux version support RedHat enterprise Linux version 5&6 (x64 only), CentOS 5&6(x64 only), SUSE Enterprise 10(x64 only). Then I decide to try on OpenSUSE. Here what I have done:
Download the FDTD_Solutions-8.5.3.tar.gz file
login as root
tar -zxf FDTD_Solutions-8.5.3.tar.gz
then choose the install direction and then get the failed dependencies error as shown before.

I think the problem with that is that the software is not open source.

Their website says:
