It sounds like the rpm you have hasn't been built for SuSE. You can,
although you shouldn't get into the habit of doing it, use "rpm -Uvh
--nodeps" to get past the error. Assuming the version of libasound the
package was linked against is binary compatible with the version on
your machine, the program may just work.
Note that using --nodeps for even a single package might cause other
things to start complaining or throwing errors. If that happens, just
"rpm -ev" the package again.
