IIRC epdfinfo isn't supposed to be built during the installation of the
package from Melpa. pdf-tools will try to build it the first time you
invoke `(pdf-tools-install)`, which should be called in your init file.

You can also try building epdfinfo from the command line, which may
provide more info when something goes wrong. In particular, you'll need
to make sure that the development packages of the libraries that
epdfinfo uses are installed. I don't know about SUSE, but on Debian and
derivatives these aren't installed automatically. The pdf-tools README
discusses this.

Other than that, without more detailed info / output it's difficult to
say what might be going wrong.
