you say version “11.” is it 11.0 or 11.1, not that it really matters
for your question, but i’m wondering if it is actually “SUSE 11” also
known correctly as “SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop” (SLED) or “SUSE
Linux Enterprise Server” (SLES)…
and, i ask because there is a difference between SLED/SLES 11 and
openSUSE 11.0 and 11.1

oh…i now see it is 11.0
http://software.opensuse.org/search shows zero hits on “suseplugger”
for SLED/SLES 11 or openSUSE 11.0
and, google’s most recent hit on that string is over three years
old…i therefore suppose that it is no longer available…(or more
likely has been “rolled in”)
however if you could describe the functionality you seek maybe
someone here could lead you to it…
that is, i’ve never seen a “a Windows Device Manager” and therefore
have no idea what one might do…
how and what does it “manage”?
like, does it throttle the CPU according to the speed demanded? does
it increase/decrease the GPU fan speed? what?
does it “manage” which device drivers are being used?
maybe it doesn’t “manage” anything, maybe it just lists what devices
are available and their characteristics…
i reckon openSUSE has all sorts of “device management”…for sure, all
of those i mentioned are covered in the most install options…if not
i guess if we know you want we can help you locate it…
