It didn't work.

Yast tells me, it is enabled.

Any other switch to check?

It's stored in sysctl, as kernel.sysrq, check via
"/usr/sbin/sysctl -a --pattern kernel.sysrq" (works as normal user)
a value of "0" (zero) means disabled, a value of "1" (one) means enabled.

No, check your books. This is not a boolean, it's a bitmask, and "1"
is usually not getting you the basic set that openSUSE has had enabled
in the default install in the past.

Oh, right, derp on my side. Good docu here:
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA/Sysrq

But the most imporant point is:
"1 - enable all functions of sysrq"
