I don't know Suse, but it seems that your Subversion Python bindings
aren't installed correctly.

On a Mac, the package appears to be subversion-python25bindings (there
is also a subversion-python24bindings package).  On Debian, it is

So make sure the bindings are installed.  Then confirm that they are
installed for the same Python version that you are attempting to run
Trac with.

Hopefully this helps.
