I need to precede this post with a bunch of disclaimers. This is not a supported configuration, it has not been tested by either GroupWise or SuSE engineering and I personally have not played with it enough to see if anything else is broken, however, it is possible to get the GroupWise client running on openSUSE 10.3.

The last thing that you need to do is to modify /opt/novell/groupwise/client/bin/groupwise. On the line after the first export enter:
The whole file now reads:
Save that file and launch the client again – it should now work.
