The file is OK, but remember that "gnuhealth" is just the health
package, that is why it's only 770K. Just did an installation and
worked fine. (pip3 install --user gnuhealth)

The rest of the packages are also there gnuhealth_archives,
gnuhealth_gyneco ....

You should customize gnuhealth-control so it works on openSUSE, either
by calling internally zypper in or whatever you deem appropriate to
achieve the same task as "gnuhealth-control update". That way we get
close to the ideal 1-1 relationship on the standard and the openSUSE

I think you already have done something like that already to adapt
gnuhealth-control getlang.

Moreover, I have to know *exactly* which system distribution. In
this case, it would be openSUSE. I can not talk for any others until
they have been verified.
