Problem running Sugar on openSUSE 11.0

I am convinced that my installation of openSUSE 11.1 is messed up and my 
best option is to do a fresh install rather than an upgrade.  David 
Fanning had asked me to do a ./sugar-jhbuild depscheck and the only way 
I could run that was to do a git-clone of sugar-jhbuild first.  When I 
tried to do that I got a message saying that git-clone was not found, 
yet YAST and rpm -V both said that git-core (which YAST showed as 
containing that command) was installed.  The file was definitely missing 
though.  I'm guessing that something similar is happening with 
python-telepathy.  I also find that neither of the DVD burning apps that 
come with the distro can recognize my DVD burner, but I have no trouble 
mounting DVDs on it.  11.0 also had some odd problems that I thought 
upgrading to 11.1 had fixed, but apparently some problems remain.

Tonight I'll do the clean install and run your zypper commands again and 
I'll let you know how it went.  Thanks,

James Simmons
