Your init script is laking the necessary Oracle environment

Unfortunately I don't know where SUSE is storing these
variables (maybe in /etc/profile.d/oracle?), but even
if you don't find the script, you could simply re-export
all ORA and LD_LIBRARY_PATH variables you can find when
you open a shell and invoke "printenv|grep ORA".
