go in yast, hardware, graphic card and screen (or just start sax)
select mouse, open "for experienced" tab on far right, select mouse wheel

I see and "Expert" tab. "Enable Wheel" is already checked.

This is a frustrating experience.

Check your XF86Config file. Mine is:

Section "InputDevice"
Driver "mouse"
Identifier "Mouse[1]"
Option "ButtonNumber" "5"
Option "Buttons" "5"
Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
Option "Name" "Autodetection"
Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
Option "Vendor" "Sysp"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

Notice the line Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"

A previous posting said to try IMPS/2, but on my computer with SuSE 9.1 that setting didn't work and ExplorerPS/2 seems to do the trick.

Hope that helps.
