I haven't used SUSE, Novell, nor OpenSUSE as a host node nor have I created containers using those distros... so I'm not sure as to your specifics... but generally speaking...

Many of the pre-created OS Templates are extremely trimmed down to make them small to download and quick to install... and low on resource usage... with less software that requires updating. So, I would think your situation is normal. Just look at the size of the OS Templates you are using and ask... how much software would fit in there... and how does it compare to the install media in size? If it is considerably smaller than the distro's install media, it has been trimmed down.

Most of the OS Templates I have contributed are fairly bloated with software that I like... including yum.

I personally haven't really seen a whole lot of SUSE related OpenVZ activity and encourage you to become more proficient with OpenVZ and create some newer, more complete OS Templates and contribute them.
