Problem running Sugar on openSUSE 11.0

OK, I uninstalled both sugar and sugar-activities, then installed just
sugar. It did not complain of missing dependencies, and seemed to
install just fine. Then I tried running sugar from the command line as
matchbox-window-manager: Failed to connect to session manager
root window unavailible (maybe another wm is running?)
DeprecationWarning: the sha module is deprecated; use the hashlib module
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/sugar-session", line 41, in <module>

ImportError: No module named telepathy
I can see a couple of things here:
1). It still is complaining about the root window, so I'm guessing that
even if it worked it wouldn't run in a window like sugar-jhbuild does.
2). It still is complaining about telepathy.
The traceback above is after I installed nearly everything
telepathy-related from YAST. The list of all I installed is as follows:
rpm -qa | grep telepathy
As you can see python-telepathy is installed.
I hope you can figure out what is wrong here. I haven't been able to
get a fully functioning development environment for Sugar on either of
my Linux workstations, and it has made it difficult to write and test
Activities. I considered replacing openSUSE with Fedora but the Fedora
live CD seems to need a lot more memory to run than I have (I have 256 meg).
