Unable to tether with Samsung Galaxy S openSuse 11.4 64 bit kde 4.6

Network Manager is is not listing usb0 as a network interface when I plug my my phone to my laptop via usb. This wasn’t a problem in opensuse 11.3 kde 4.5 which would listed it as the wired interface auto usb0.
How can I get this functionality back without downgrading back to 11.3?
