Well, I tried to compile this version myself with the Eigen3 libraries 
installed, and I still didn't get the refocus working. (and I haven't had 
time to dig into why it doesn't work).

But it is indeed a bug from OpenSuSe, nothing the Digikam team can do about 
it. And note that just installing Eigen doesn't work, as it is a pure 
compile-time dependency (the Eigen 'library' consists only of header files, 
and those are ment to be included by the using code. They don't get 
compiled on their own, contrary to more traditional libraries, where you 
have compile-time and run-time dependecy).

There is a bug report filed here: 
but with a priority of "P5 - None", I'm not going to hold my breath waiting 
for it to get fixed...
