Unfrotunately when I compiled the latest free Qt for my Slack 9 system other 
parts of Slackware stopped working. So I have another plan. What readily 
available distros and releases of Linux work well with Scribus? 

I have an extra partition that I can set up as my Scribus partition until the 
dust settles on Qt & Linux. It means rebooting when I want to play with 
Scribus but I can live with that over the short term.
