I don't know where it might be in the SuSE repositories, but the
penguins parachuting down the screen is called xpenguins, so you
might be able to find it searching for that name, or if it's no longer
in SuSE, you can probably find a source package with a google search.
I think I remember building it once and that it was a very small and
straightforward package (easy to build), but I might be thinking of oneko
(the one where a little cat chases the mouse cursor around the screen).
