It means you're trying to install a broken rpm. linux-gate.so.1 is a virtual
library that you see when you're using NPTL (the i686 version of glibc in
recent suse versions). The suse "find-requires" script removes this from the
rpm requirements list, but apparently the rpm was built on a system that
didn't know about this, and/or by a person who didn't know about this.

Be careful when installing third party packages. You never know what you get
