Thanks!  At least the x86_64 ones appear to run on openSUSE 11.4 (OpenVZ
container on Owl) just fine, after I installed the prerequisites from
the openSUSE 11.4 repository with "zypper install ...".  Indeed, many
features don't work yet.  I haven't tried actually running John via the
GUI, though - will try that later.  Is it supposed to work?

Yes, they're the same:

cmp -l johnny-6ae97db95fa989dca55aaef319a2839763aa018d-x86_64-gnome johnny-6ae97db95fa989dca55aaef319a2839763aa018d-x86_64-kde
echo $?

shows "0".
