kile and the underlying LaTeX system are unrelated, i.e., installed in
You should look for the directory in which SuSE installs it's tex
packages. I don't know the exact location (can't access my SuSE box from
here, but I guess it's in /usr/something), but once you found out where
the LaTeX packages are, you could create a sub-directory named something
like my-packages (should be possible for root only) within the LaTeX tree
and make it writeable for users.
Afterwards, you just put the packages you need into this directory and, o=
the console, run "texhash". This will update LaTeX' package database.
